John Cena’s Wipeout season 2 is scheduled to premiere on TBS at 9pm ET on Tuesday, January 11th, 2022.
TBS has announced that season 2 of the hit comedy competition series will return for all-new episodes on January 11th. Cena hosts the show with Nicole Byer, and field host Camille Kostek. He also serves as an Executive Producer on the show.
A TBS press release noted that the adrenaline-fueled comedy competition series will push contestants’ athleticism, endurance and determination as they race to win a grand cash prize. New details on the season 2 format were also revealed.
Each game is split into three rounds and features a jaw-dropping, three-stage obstacle course consisting of multiple strategy and decision points designed to test the stamina of the competitors. This season welcomes teams from a variety of different backgrounds including a father-son duo with an unusual physical attribute, a record-breaking run by two firefighters, a sex therapist who has the hots for one of the hosts, and a divorced couple who team up to win the big prize – and features a few twists along the way from an obstacle course marriage proposal to Camille finding she’s been replaced by a sock puppet on her sick day to a redemption episode featuring some of John and Nicole’s favorite competitors from across the season. Testing the willpower of each contestant pairing, ‘Wipeout’ captures the very best in extreme sports competition all while delivering laughs and more than a few epic fails.
Wipeout is produced for TBS by Endemol Shine North America. Additional Executive Producers besides Cena include DJ Nurre, Sharon Levy, Shyam Balsé, and Keith Geller. Matt Kunitz, creator of the original series that aired from 2008-2014 on ABC, serves as a showrunner and Executive Producer.
TBS originally renewed Wipeout for a second season back in May, right after the first season wrapped. The first season averaged 790,000 viewers per episode over 10 one-hour episodes, and a Suicide Squad special aired in August, drawing 400,000 viewers.
