UPDATE: American Ninja Warrior has postponed the Los Angeles, Washington, D.C. and St. Louis tapings.

It. is. almost. time. Season 12 of American Ninja Warrior has been officially announced by NBC and will be filmed this spring in three cities—Los Angeles (Universal Studios backlot), Washington, D.C. (DC Armory), and St. Louis (The Dome at America’s Center). National Finals will still be held in Las Vegas.

Even more exciting? in Washington, D.C. and St. Louis, shooting will be during the day and early evening—and indoors—which will give thousands of fans the opportunity to watch the action live this season.

Hosts Matt Iseman and Akbar Gbajabiamila and sideline reporter Zuri Hall are all coming back, and we can expect to see some rule changes and never-before-seen obstacles.

The grand prize for achieving Total Victory is still $1 million, or the last Ninja standing will receive $100,000.

Tickets can be found at and will be released 30 days before filming begins. According to that website, the filming dates are as follows:

Mark your calendar and get excited! Season 12 is coming!
