We are more than ready for a brand new season of American Ninja Warrior! Season 13 makes its debut on Memorial Day this year. The new episodes will bring a return to the format we love as well as some fresh elements.
Season 13 of American Ninja Warrior will include Qualifiers, Semifinals, and yes, the National Finals. After the Power Tower playoffs of season 12, the show returns to Las Vegas this year to see if any competitors can survive the final three stages and the climb for $1 million.
The return to form is coupled with some big new elements. The Qualifying and Semifinals courses will both include a “Split-Decision.” That’s a point on the course where the competitors will have to choose between two obstacles. Make the right choice and move forward. Make the wrong choice and forever wonder what could have been.
Season 13 will also include invited competitors as young as 15-years-old. Matt Iseman and Akbar Gbajabiamila can’t stop gushing over how competent and impressive these athletes are. It seems like a sure bet that they’re going to shake up the game.
Ready to see how it all goes down? Here’s how to tune in! The premiere episode will be the first night of the Qualifiers, which were filmed in the Tacoma Dome.
