SO many returning greats!

William Gray/NBC

American Ninja Warrior’s return visit to Baltimore comes with some high expectations. The field is stacked with big name, return competitors, so fans will be keeping their eyes open for great things. But this season has taught us not to get comfortable, and the rookies have been throwing some serious skills out there.

The episode will air tonight, Monday, July 1, at 8/7c on NBC. Until then, let’s take a good, hard look at some preview photos for hints of what we might see!

There’s a new balance obstacle in our midst. The Hazard Cones will require a lot of confidence from Ninjas like Dave Cavanagh.

Jon Alexis Jr. can probably make pretty short work of the Shrinking Steps with his height.

We already got a peek at Joe’s run, so we know he’s going to face down the Mega Wall again. We just don’t know how it turns out.

Abby Clark hit a buzzer last year in Minneapolis. This year, the Dangerous Curves will try to stop her from doing it again.

Casey Rothschild is in the same situation. She was a 20-year-old rookie last season for her first buzzer in Philly. Now she has a new level of experience and new obstacles to contend with.

WNBA super star Tamika Catchings looks focused as heck on the Double Twister.

Chris Wilczewski probably wants another cool $10k from the Mega Wall too.

Allyssa Beird is no stranger to completing the Qualifying course. We’re ready to see her do it again.
