Cheers! Join Blake Shelton, Carson Daly, and Nikki Garcia for Season 2 of the hit celebrity game show.

Barmageddon Is Back for Another Round November 13

Are y'all ready for a rip-roaring good time with Blake Shelton, Carson Daly, Nikki Garcia, and their celebrity friends? If not, you best prepare: Barmageddon Season 2 is returning to USA Network on November 13.

How to Watch

Watch Barmageddon on USA Network and Peacock.

Best buds Shelton and Daly, who first bonded as OGs on NBC's The Voice, brought their special bond to Barmageddon Season 1 with a collection of over-the-top bar games, live music, and good times at Shelton's Nashville-based bar, Ole Red. And Season 2 will be no different! The pair are joined once again by Wrestling Hall of Famer Garcia, who brings the heat as host.

So, what can fans expect from the second season of USA Network's wild celebrity game show?

How does Barmageddon work?

In each episode of Barmageddon, two celebrities play a unique set of five games in the bar to win a much-needed prize for a viral Internet sensation each has chosen to support. Plucked from obscurity following their epic misadventures online, these now-infamous stars find themselves at Ole Red hoping to be redeemed. The competition heats up when the losing rival of each round has a chance to even the score by spinning the Wheel of Redemption, a risky move with hilarious consequences.

Ultimately, the winning team takes home a prize while the losing celebrity must accept the shame of defeat. But this is Barmageddon — even if they don’t win, at least they had fun trying.

Who's competing in Barmageddon Season 2?

  • Kelly Clarkson vs. Michelle Rodriguez
  • Gwen Stefani vs. Blake Shelton
  • David Arquette vs. Colbie Caillat
  • Jelly Roll vs. Gabriel Iglesias
  • Carly Pearce vs. Boyz II Men
  • Ice T vs. Blake Shelton
  • Rob Riggle vs. Chris Hardwick
  • Nikki Glaser vs. Al Madrigal
  • Bill Engvall vs. AJ McCarron
  • Lauren Alaina vs. Blake Shelton

We have some truly epic head-to-head matches coming up — musicians, comedians, athletes ... so much opportunity for competition, laughs, and Wheel of Redemption blunders. And please note that Shelton has the opportunity to take home three wins this season (but obviously we're all rooting for his wife, Gwen Stefani, to come out on top in one of those).

(An important question: If Boyz II Men win against Carly Pearce, does that count as three wins or just one?)

With Daly behind the bar and Shelton taking the stage with his house band for live music sing-alongs, these icons and celebrity favorites show a new side to themselves in this anything-but-ordinary game show where everyone is invited to the party. The pair offers words of encouragement – and plenty of heckling – to their friends, occasionally stepping in to show off their own skills.

Meanwhile, as a naturally competitive spirit who once dominated the wrestling ring, Garcia sets the stakes as celebrity friends go head-to-head in a series of classic bar games with a fun twist.

What bar games are played in Barmageddon?

In Season 2, you'll see returning favorites Air Cannon Cornhole, Keg Curling, Drunken Axe Hole, Sharts (“Shelton Darts”), and more. A new set of outrageous bar games thrown into the mix include Fool’s Ball, Tic Tac Throwdown, and Talk Derby to Me. The games are big, the antics are loud and the competition is ludicrous in the best way.

And the fun doesn't stop there. This season, fans will be treated to a Barmageddon holiday special! On December 4 on NBC before the episode makes its way to USA Network, Shelton will invite Ice T to his winter wonderland where they will compete in larger-than-life bar games with a holiday twist, including Merry Axe-Mas, Doodle All the Way, Little Drummer Boy (and Girl), Reindeer Games, and Christmas Carol-okie.
