Described as a re-imagining at the cabler, the eighth season 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.” Changes to the series will include a new format breaking it down into three rounds and features a three-stage obstacle course that consists of “multiple strategy and decision points designed to further challenge and wear out the stamina of the competitors.

In my many years of producing, Wipeout remains my all-time favorite,” series creator Matt Kunitz said in a statement. “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.

In its original run, Wipeout was a real hit for ABC, drawing in 10 million viewers and a 3.7 rating to become the summer of 2008’s top-rated premiere and spawned various adaptations in more than 30 global territories including Argentina, Australia and the UK. The final season on the network averaged 3.5 million viewers and a 1.0 rating.

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,” Brett Weitz, General Manager, TNT, TBS and truTV, said in a statement. “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.
