TBS announced today that all new episodes of cable’s No. 1 new comedy Wipeout will debut on Tuesday, January 11, 2022. You can watch a new promo for the episodes below.
The new episodes are hosted by multifaceted megastar John Cena (upcoming Peacemaker, The Suicide Squad, F9) and Emmy Award-nominated actress/comedian Nicole Byer (Nailed It!, Girl Code), with field host Camille Kostek (Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Cover Model 2019, Free Guy).
Wipeout is an adrenaline-fueled comedy competition series that pushes contestants’ athleticism, endurance and determination as they race to win the grand cash prize.
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.
The season features a few twists along the way from an obstacle course marriage proposal to Camille finding she’s been replaced by a sock puppet on her sick day to a redemption episode featuring some of John and Nicole’s favorite competitors from across the season.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.
Endemol Shine North America has produced the series for TBS with Sharon Levy, DJ Nurre, Shyam Balsé and Keith Geller, serving as executive producers. John Cena serves as an executive producer. Matt Kunitz, creator of the original series, serves as executive producer and showrunner.
“I couldn’t be more excited for what’s in store for this radically absurd show that has its own fair share of legendary faceplants,” said John Cena when he was announced as co-host.
“The power of Wipeout is its ability to gather people of all backgrounds for fast paced, physical FUN! I look forward to seeing fan responses both new and existing. This’ll be a hosting experience unlike anything I’ve ever done! I can’t wait to get started in rooting for our contestants!”
“Now more than ever we need a ton of fun and laughs,” said Nicole Byer, “and there’s nothing funnier than people falling over giant red balls. Wipeout is truly insane, and I’m tickled to be a part of this beloved show’s comeback.”
“We couldn’t be more excited to have John, Nicole and Camille take charge of this outrageously unpredictable, family-friendly competition series, said Matt Kunitz. “Having a sports titan and movie star next to an Emmy-nominated comedy star, alongside a seasoned co-host, they’ll complement one another with their own fantastic qualities and humor while livening the already extreme setting of Wipeout.”
“Wipeout has always delivered a great deal of light and laughter in dark times – whether that was in 2008 when it first premiered in the midst of a massive recession or now again, in 2020,” said Corie Henson, EVP, Head of Unscripted for TNT, TBS and truTV.
“This is one show that brings people together – regardless of age, race or politics. With megastar John Cena and hilarious Emmy nominee Nicole Byer, and with the help of rising star, Camille Kostek, as our host in the field, Wipeout is going to be bigger, badder and ballsier than ever before.”
