Wipeout: ABC TV Show Renewed for Season Four

WipeoutIf you like to see people race through obstacle courses of giant balls, mud, and slippery slopes, you’re in luck. ABC has renewed the Wipeout game show for a fourth season.

Series creator and executive producer Matt Kunitz tells THR, “I’m excited that a fourth season will give our team the opportunity to create bigger and funnier ways to wipe out contestants and thrill families across America.”

The next round of episodes will feature a couple of new obstacle courses and components. There will be a new “motivator” for the giant red balls, a new twist for the classic sweeper, and new obstacles called the Lawn Mower and the Sky Scraper Slide.

ABC has ordered 16 installments this time around. Season one was made up of 10 episodes while seasons two and three had 17 and 18 installments respectively.

    Love the show. It makes me laugh especially when I am having a bad day. Here’s a thought how about putting a episode together for behind the sceen bloopers.

    of course it would get renewed, what better form of entertainment then watching other people fall and risk serious injury?
