The phones are ringing. The Ninjas are gathering. Now, we can share a few more details about American Ninja Warrior’s upcoming 13th season.

Round one of the competition will be held in Tacoma, Washington, the week of March 26.

The show will return to the Tacoma Dome, where Ninja Warrior previously filmed during their first visit to Tacoma back in season 11. Season 13’s format will have all the competitors begin their journey in this location. We’ll release more information on what happens next once it’s confirmed.

We can share the exciting news that season 13 will return to Las Vegas and the National Finals will roar back to life. Yes, $1 million is back on the line.

Season 12 of American Ninja Warrior was filmed under extraordinary conditions and there will still be extensive safety protocols in place for season 13. Due to the ongoing pandemic, there will be no walk-on line or general live audience this year.

Intrigued? So are we. It seems like season 13 will both bring back classic elements of the show and introduce new innovations. There are still a lot of questions left to answer and as soon as we can, we’ll fill you all in. Stay tuned!
