Is there anything more thrilling than watching America's greatest ninjas compete on some of the toughest obstacle courses in sports entertainment? How about multiple ninjas competing simultaneously? That's exactly what fans will see when Team Ninja Warrior season two makes its USA Network debut on Tuesday at 10 p.m. Eastern.
The American Ninja Warrior spinoff series, which is moving to USA from the Esquire Network, will feature 28 three-person teams, each of which includes one female and two male competitors. The competition is sure to be fierce, as the teams go head-to-head on side-by-side courses that will test their physical limits.
If the thought of seeing 84 of the top ninja challengers compete is somehow not enough to get you excited for season two's premiere, we have a clip that should amp you up. Mic has been given an exclusive look at a bonus run that not only introduces the side-by-side course, but also features two of the most popular American Ninja Warriors.
In the below clip, Team G-Force, captained by Jessie Graff, takes on a Meagan Martin-led Team Mega Crushers. These are two of the best at what they do. In season eight of American Ninja Warrior, Graff became the first female competitor in history to finish stage one in Las Vegas. Of course, Martin is no slouch herself, as she has reached the city finals in three straight competitions.
So, ninja fans: are you ready?
Team Ninja Warrior begins its 11-part second season on Tuesday at 10 p.m. Eastern on USA. The action will be hosted by comedian Matt Iseman and former NFL player Akbar Gbajabiamila. As for who else is competing, you can find the entire roster of ninjas and their bios on USA's website.
