We still would’ve preferred the return of MTV’s “Fear,” but we’ll take it.
“Twin Peaks.” “The X-Files.” “Roseanne.” It seems that every popular TV series from the past is coming back here in the present, and MTV hopes to cash in on that small screen trend with “Fear Factor,“ a reboot of the NBC series that originally aired back in the early 2000s. Ludacris is replacing Joe Rogan as host, and we’ve got the first trailer today.
MTV is giving viewers the chance to conquer their fears head on with a refresh of the breakthrough series “Fear Factor.” Ludacris will host the new installment, custom-created for a generation that is increasingly empowered, while also more anxious than ever.
Filled with new stunts inspired by urban legends, popular scary movies, and viral videos from today’s cultural zeitgeist, “Fear Factor” contestants will confront their fears, be pushed beyond their comfort zones, and take action against some of their biggest stressors.
Don’t miss the premiere on Tuesday, May 30th at 10/9c!
