WarnerMedia announced today that “Wipeout” is returning to television after being picked up by TBS.


Wipeout aired for seven seasons from 2008 to 2014 on ABC. Check out the press release below on Wipeout returning to television.


LOS ANGELES – APRIL 29, 2020 – TBS has ordered a revival of the renowned, heart-pumping and hysterical competition series Wipeout, returning to captivate viewers of all ages. The network has ordered 20 episodes of the international sensation that features contestants competing in wildly creative and hilariously out-of-the box obstacle courses.
 
Following its debut as the No. 1 new show of the summer in 2008, Wipeout amassed an impressive following throughout its seven seasons on-air. The series found international viewers in the form of various adaptations in more than 30 global territories such as Argentina, Australia and the UK and has inspired numerous spin-offs and specials.
 
The re-imagined series will feature new format twists and elements that will push contestants’ athleticism and willpower to even greater extremes, all while delivering some pretty epic fails! Each game has been designed into three rounds and now features a jaw-dropping, three-stage, obstacle course consisting of multiple strategy and decision points designed to further challenge, and wear out, the stamina of the competitors. Returning to the game, an iconic staple with many surprises, are the big red balls, back with a vengeance.
 
“In my many years of producing, ‘Wipeout’ remains my all-time favorite,” said Matt Kunitz, Creator/Showrunner/Executive Producer of the series. “I am thrilled that it is returning more competitive than ever, while continuing to provide hilarious wipeouts. ‘Wipeout’ is a rare show loved by both kids and adults, a true co-viewing experience. With a strong focus on comedy, there is no better network for ‘Wipeout’s ‘return than TBS.”
 
“I cannot think of a better tent pole program than wipeout as we take our unscripted programming to the next level under Corie Henson, EVP and head of unscripted programming for TBS, TNT and truTV, said Kevin Reilly, Chief Content Officer, HBO Max, President, TNT, TBS, and truTV. “This is a big show for the whole family and we have some big ideas to infuse real drama and new twists into the fun.”
 
“Now more than ever is the time to gather family and tune-in to a fiercely wild and undeniably engaging viewing experience that mixes athletic action with hilarious antics,” added Brett Weitz, General Manager, TNT, TBS and truTV. “We are honored to partner with Endemol Shine to present a reimagined take on this universally beloved franchise that keeps audiences of all ages glued to the screen.”
 
“We are thrilled to be bringing back everyone’s favorite obstacle course competition with the team at TBS,” said Sharon Levy, President, Unscripted & Scripted Television, Endemol Shine North America. “This show has truly become a global phenomenon and its popularity has continued to grow over the last decade with a new generation of viewers. We have some really unique, fun new twists planned for this version and we can’t wait to get into production.” 
 
Endemol Shine North America will produce the series with Sharon LevyDJ NurreShyam Balsé and Kevin Wehrenberg serving as executive producers. Matt Kunitz, creator of the original series, will serve as executive producer and showrunner.

The main goal of our events calendar is to get as many events as possible in one place to make it easier for fans. All events have ticket links, venue information, date and time. But some events have more, and some have a lot more and are basically event previews. It depends on the information available at the time we post the event and if we are able to update that event, etc. The other goal is keeping fans up to date on events in general, as best we can. We can’t possibly get EVERY event, but you’ll see we have more then most anyone else. Recently we’ve added Event Reminders for when certain shows will be airing. For example, if an event is taped, the reminder will be for when the event airs. We do our best to maintain around 200 upcoming pro wrestling events at all times. We started with US & Canadian professional wrestling promotions but have recently been adding more events from around the world. Including all different types of entertainment events. Some days have one to three events and some have over twenty on the same day, so you may have to click the link at the bottom to see more events on a certain day. Also we recently made it possible for anyone to comment on these event pages. If you’re a fan who went to or watched any of these events, feel free to leave a comment below. * “Wipeout” Returning To Television DiscussPW Entertainment News *
