Fear Factor is making a comeback. Today, the series’ production company Endemol Shine North America announced they are currently casting a new season of the cancelled NBC series.
The original competition show premiered in 2001 on NBC. Hosted by Joe Rogan, the series pitted contestants against each other in challenging mental and physical stunts for a cash prize. The show first ended in 2006 and was then revived in 2011 for one season before being cancelled again.
Now, Endemol Shine is bringing Fear Factor back. The production company recently put out a casting notice for “adventurous, competitive teams of two.” A network for the revival wasn’t mentioned, so it’s unclear if the new season will air on NBC or not.
From Endemol Shine:
