A teaser trailer has arrived for a second season of The Challenge: USA, as the show continues filming footage for the upcoming episodes.
The latest teaser includes host TJ Lavin appearing briefly to tease the upcoming spinoff season on CBS, which will differ from the first installment.
As an electric guitar version of The Star Spangled Banner plays, a female narrator reveals that CBS reality TV stars will battle it out with “MTV Challenge Legends” for the “ultimate prize of half a million dollars.”
Those reality stars will come from either Big Brother, Amazing Race, or Survivor. Unlike the first season, there are no Love Island stars due to the show moving from CBS to Peacock.
“Who has what it takes to become America’s best? This is The Challenge: USA,” TJ says to close out the teaser.
The Instagram post’s caption indicates the show “returns to CBS this summer” and “coming soon” later appears on the screen, but no official premiere date is provided.
The first season of The Challenge: USA sent champions to World Championship spinoff
The arrival of The Challenge: USA 2 teaser comes just as The Challenge: World Championship final wrapped up on Paramount Plus.
That World Championship spinoff season featured several cast members from the first season of CBS’ The Challenge: USA, including the winners, Survivor stars Danny McCray and Sarah Lacina.
In addition, there were winners and cast members from international shows, The Challenge: UK, The Challenge: Argentina, and The Challenge: Australia, competing for the World Championship.
World Championship also featured MTV Legends, including Tori Deal, Johnny Bananas, Wes Bergmann, Nelson Thomas, Jonna Mannion, and Jordan Wiseley.
The World Championship format featured each of the international spinoff stars getting to select one of the MTV Legends to work with for the season.
As of this writing, whether The Challenge: USA 2 will lead to another installment of the World Championship is unknown. There’s yet to be any news of additional international spinoff seasons for The Challenge.
The previous season of The Challenge: USA aired episodes live on CBS and Paramount Plus, with episodes available to view online afterward on the Paramount Plus website or apps.
Interestingly, the episodes for The Challenge: All Stars 4 were filmed, and the season finished months ago, while USA 2 is still being filmed. That raises questions about when they plan to bring out All Stars 4, as The Challenge: Season 39 is also in the works for MTV.
Spoilers reveal the next elimination from The Challenge: USA 2
Spoilers will follow for The Challenge: USA 2, as another elimination recently arrived online to send a cast member home.
Based on an Instagram post from @mtvchallengeinsider, a former Big Brother houseguest is the latest cast member revealed as out of the game.
That individual was involved in a showmance with another BB star, so it should be interesting to see if that makes it into the CBS footage.
He’ll be among several newcomers to the show, based on cast spoilers that have arrived online. As mentioned, there are also MTV Legends, creating an interesting dynamic for the second season.
For those who want to catch up on The Challenge, both the USA and the World Championship seasons are available to view with online streaming at Paramount Plus.
The Challenge: USA Season 2 premiere is TBA for summer 2023. The Challenge: World Championship episodes are available on Paramount Plus.
