The cable network announced this morning that it has ordered 20 episodes of a revival of ABC's “renowned, heart-pumping and hysterical competition series." Wipeout originally aired on ABC for seven seasons, from June 2008 to September 2014. Its summer 2008 premiere made a splash with 10 million viewers that topped Hell’s Kitchen and America’s Got Talent. TBS says the Wipeout revival 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 broken up into three rounds and now features a three-stage, obstacle course consisting of “multiple strategy and decision points designed to further challenge, and wear out, the stamina of the competitors.” TBS also promises that Wipeout's signature red balls will be back "with a vengeance." “In my many years of producing, Wipeout remains my all-time favorite,” says Wipeout co-creator Matt Kunitz 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.” Brett Weitz, general manager of TNT, TBS and truTV, adds: “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." ALSO: Casting will kick off virtually and Wipeout will be made under post-coronavirus production standards.
