The Olympic break is over and American Ninja Warrior is back in full swing! Tonight (Monday, August 9), night two of the Semifinals premieres. The returning competitors started their journeys in the Qualifiers and they have unfinished business to attend to as they move into the next round.

We have some preview photos below! As usual, we try not to include any big spoilers, so none of the photos are from the back half of the course. But if you want to enjoy the episode will zero knowledge of how far anyone will get, stop reading right now!


Up there at the top of this article, we have Joe Moravsky. His Qualifying round included a Mega Wall and the declaration that this is his year. He’ll have to make moves in the Semifinals to keep that dream on track.

Speaking of the Mega Wall, Jackson Twait and Brett Hernandez Strong also return on night two of the Semifinals.

They both hit the Mega Wall in the Qualifiers. That means three of the four Mega Wall finishers are in one episode.

The fourth Mega Wall finisher was 16-year-old Vance Walker. He doesn’t run the Semifinals course tonight, but the teens will be in full effect.

We have True Becker.

Casey Rothschild was the youngest woman to hit a buzzer when she did it at age 20 in her rookie season. She’ll be looking to add a Semifinal buzzer to her collection.

Devin Harrelson is known for his flashy style on the course, but he’s yet to make it to the National Finals. You know that’s on his mind this year.

Sandy Zimmerman, the first mom to hit the buzzer, always sets out to do her absolute best and inspire others with her accomplishments.

Amir Malik was the top rookie in season 12, but there was no trip to Vegas that year. He wants to get to those final four stages.

We’ll see all these Ninajs and many more tonight! Night two of the American Ninja Warrior Semifinals airs at 8 pm EST/PST on NBC.
