The Rock, The Titan Games - Season 1

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson will be back on NBC for a second season, as his Titan Games series has been renewed. NBC announced on Monday that the epic athletic competition series will be back for a second run.

“When we launched The Titan Games, we set out to create an entirely new athletic competition series unlike anything ever done before,” said Johnson, who hosts and executive produces. “I’m excited to get back into the Titan arena and meet our new group of tough, limitless, and inspirational men and women from all walks of life. They will be tested mentally and physically at the highest level, going head-to-head in our diabolical and insane challenges. Season one was epic and our Titans pushed all boundaries, so for season two we are taking it to the next level with new challenges, a new arena setting and an incredible set of competitors.”

“We were absolutely thrilled with the overwhelming response from season one and can’t wait to see what our new Titans can achieve in the arena,” said executive producer Dany Garcia. “Audiences were inspired, engrossed and entertained as our extraordinary competitors used their will and unflinching determination to overcome mental and physical challenges never thought possible. Their strength and perseverance defied expectations and challenged us to think even bigger for season two, so if you are passionate, focused and ready to push past all limits – both physically and mentally – then the Titan arena is ready for you.”

The show was a hit for NBC in its first season with a 1.29 same-day rating in the 18 – 49 demographic, which improved the net’s Thursday night 8 PM timeslot by noticeable numbers. The show sees competitors push their bodies to the limit by battling opponents in unforgiving head-to-head challenges, designed by Johnson. Winners advance to “Mt. Olympus,” described as “the consummate athletic test of speed, strength, agility and endurance.” The winners of the first season, James Jean-Louis and Charity Witt, took home $100,000 apiece.
