MTV Orders Second Season of ‘Fear Factor’ (Exclusive)
MTV has plenty to cheer with its “Fear Factor” revival. The cabler has given a 20-episode order to Endemol Shine North America for a second season of the unscripted competition series, hosted by rapper Ludacris.
“Fear Factor” has been a solid performer for MTV with its target young adult demo since its May 30 debut. The show is scheduled to wrap its initial 12-episode run tonight.
MTV put a kinder, gentler spin on the series that made its mark as a gross-out affair on NBC from 2001 to 2006. The post-millennial version of “Fear Factor” emphasizes the aspirational motivation for contestants to face their fears in elaborate physical stunts and games inspired by scenes from well-known movies, viral videos and other pop culture-centric material.
“I’m looking forward to season two of ‘Fear Factor’ and it being more ludicrous than the first season,” said Ludacris. “Pun intended.”
