Here’s some exciting news! The highly anticipated third season of American Ninja Warrior Junior will debut on NBCUniversal’s streaming service, Peacock!
Currently, we don’t have a release date for the new season. We know that casting for the show closed back on April 30. That means the show is probably still heavily in production. Seasons one and two of ANW Jr aired on Universal Kids. We knew a few people were having trouble accessing that channel, so the move to the streaming service could be a great solution!

The press release sent out by NBC teased said that 15 episodes have been ordered. Here’s what we can expect from the new season:
“AMERICAN NINJA WARRIOR JUNIOR is back and more extra than ever. This season, the series is taking the nation’s top junior athletes and putting them on the world’s most iconic course to compete on some of the most challenging obstacles yet. They’ll put their mental and physical strength to the test as they go head-to-head in extra competitive, extra inspiring and extra fun races. These junior athletes will bring their best ninja skills, indomitable spirits and fearless attitudes to the course but only three junior athletes will become the next American Ninja Warrior Junior champions.”
Matt Iseman and Akbar Gbajabiamila are set to return to the host tower. Victoria Arlen will return to the sidelines as well. The release also teased that we might see some exciting new things this season:
“The new season will feature surprise guests, stunt runs, and all new courses featuring ambitious new obstacles designed by our challenge experts with the help of young fans.”
Again, we don’t know the release date for season three just yet. But it looks like things are charging ahead for season three of American Ninja Warrior Junior!
