Australian Ninja Warrior gets July return date

Australian Ninja Warrior has gripped the nation for two seasons and the smash-hit program will return for a groundbreaking third edition from its new home in Melbourne next month.
For the first time on Australian Ninja Warrior, there will be a winner. The competitor who goes furthest on the course in the fastest time will take home $100,000. Make it up Mt Midoriyama and the winner will pocket an extra $200,000 and the title of Australia’s first Ninja Warrior.

The unforgiving course has new twists and turns to surprise and challenge anyone who attempts it. If Ninjas thought the Warped Wall was hard, wait until they come up against the Mega Warped Wall. At 5.25 metres it is one metre taller than the existing Warped Wall, and any Ninja who conquers it pockets $5,000 cash instantly.

Two hundred inspired, everyday athletes have been training in preparation to take on the world’s toughest obstacle course. Mums and dads, tradies and farmers, students and famous sports stars of all shapes, sizes and ages from across Australia will line up to see if they have what it takes to win.

Rebecca MaddernBen Fordham and Freddie Flintoff will be back to take viewers through every jump, leap, heart-stopping victory and heart-wrenching fall as our Ninjas get their shot at glory.

Nine’s Head of Content Production and Development, Adrian Swift, said: “The show certainly has a new feel this season. With the exciting Melbourne setting and added cash prizes, our Ninjas are desperate to go further than ever before and we will see some truly spectacular feats. The new Ninjas have something to prove. This is their moment, so get ready to be blown away.”

Hundreds of everyday Aussie competitors with one shared goal: to win
