Hang in there, Ninjas, the producers aren’t done yet! It was just about a month ago that the casting calls began for season 13 of American Ninja Warrior. Since then, there have been bursts of calls and flurries of activity, punctuated by quiet lulls.

Lately, we began to wonder if things were done for the year. It had been a while since we saw any casting announcements on social media. More and more people began asking if that was it for 2021.

But it seems that we can all let out a sigh of relief. Judging by posts on Instagram, it looks like the producers picked their phones back up on Sunday.

The realization that calls are still going out is a bit of a double-edged sword. It means that Ninjas can hang on to their hopes that they’ll get a shot at the course this year. But it also means their anxiety levels won’t be going down any time soon.

We don’t know how much longer the calls will go on. There is only about a month left before all the competitors are due to gather in Tacoma for the first round of the competition. But at this point, it looks like the team behind the show is not done gathering the season 13 competitors.

If you’re still waiting for a call, hang in there! And try to relax a little as well. We’re sure waiting on news like this makes one a little jumpy.
