Executive Producer Brian Richardson gives us the low-down on what to expect.

Sneak peek at Team Ninja Warrior, Season Two

ONE WEEK till Team Ninja Warrior returns! We have a seriously behind-the-scenes peek for you right here.

Posted by American Ninja Warrior Nation on Tuesday, April 11, 2017

Executive producer Brian Richardson pulled back the curtain on Team Ninja Warrior, just for you ANW Nation fans.

Team Ninja Warrior premieres April 18, at 10 pm on USA Network and we’ve got more teaser clips than ever right here.

Brian gives us an incredible look at the action we’ve all been waiting for, right from the edit bay where he and the rest of the producers at A. Smith & Co are creating the show!

Here’s what we can expect:

  • A longer course with new obstacles we haven’t seen
  • More teams than ever, 28 teams in total
  • Fan favorites Jessie Graff, Daniel Gil and Drew Drechsel are all team captains
  • Action! We’re talk about upsets, come-from-behind wins and super close finishes
  • Some finishes will be decided by hundredths of a second

It looks like Ninja Warriors will be literally flying.

Kacy Catanzaro has her game face on! The intensity factor will be at a 10.

We’re super excited to see some faces new to Team Ninja Warrior, like Najee Richardson.

This is the face JJ Woods will give you if you don’t tune in.

Team Ninja Warrior is going to be SO GOOD.
