Hot off the presses, American Ninja Warrior will be back in 2018. It’s 8th season was confirmed via Twitter from NBC’s Television Critics Association’s press event. The season, currently in it’s 7th has yet to find someone who can conquer the course, but has found a lot of people to participate, at least enough to put 6 cities and qualifiers for competitors. The development of the series evolved from G4’s American Ninja Warrior qualifying event to its full on event with finals in Las Vegas. That series came from Japan’s TBS’ (Tokyo Broadcasting Station) Sasuke, a sports competition show that had competitors run through a series of intense obstacles in four stages that, if completely fully would win them a monetary award.
