The hour-long program will pit three teams against one another on adjacent obstacle courses that test endurance and speed. Comedian Matt Iseman and former NFL player Akbar Gbajabiamila will return, as well as fan favorite athletes and teams including Flip Rodriguez and Team TNT. FOX Sports’ Alex Curry will reprise her role as sideline reporter.
Viewers can expect particularly intense, intertwining courses that ramp up the difficulty. In order to win, contestants will need to use unique strategies as well as strength and agility over the course of 16 episodes.
American Ninja Warrior: Ninja Vs. Ninja is executive-produced by A. Smith & Co. Productions’ founders Arthur Smith and Kent Weed (Hell’s Kitchen, The Dunk King, Spartan: Ultimate Team Challenge), along with Brian Richardson as executive producer.
