Nick Cannon - MTV Welcomes Back The Revival Of Nick Cannon's Comedy Format Wild'n Out
Wild'n Out returns to MTV with the same premise and brand new faces.
A revival of Nick Cannon’s MTV comedy series Wild’n Out is finally happening. The reboot has reportedly been in the works for a long time, but it is only now that Cannon has taken the time out to actually work on it, according to The Hollywood Reporter. This time, however, the producer, actor and host of the comedy series will create the season for sister network MTV2.
Cannon worked on the show in his break from hosting America's Got Talent.
According to Cannon, the revival is responding to a demand that has existed for a while. "People have been in talks about it for a long time, and I just had to really buckle down and say, "OK, I’m going to take the time out to actually do it,'" Cannon tells The Hollywood Reporter. The show’s premise is largely unchanged – two teams of celebrities will compete in a range of comedic challenges, ranging from freestyle rap battles to standup routines. The show will return with an updated cast and roster of guest performers, including the likes of Guy Code's Lil DuVal, Amar'e Stoudemire, Mac Miller, 2Chainz, Machine Gun Kelly, A$AP Rocky and Joe Budden.
The revival is responding to fan demand, says the host.
Cannon explained what his main goal for the show was in an interview with the Reporter. In it, he said: “Creating a destination. When you watch any of the original shows, or any real successful show like this, you want the audience to say, "Man I wish I could be there or go to that -- they look like they’re having so much fun," and that’s what we had in the first four seasons, and we definitely accomplished that in the fifth season.” Whether the show will once again finds its audience, will become obvious soon enough, as Nick Cannon Presents: Wild 'n Out debuts July 9 at 11 p.m. on MTV2.
It's all in the atmosphere, according to Cannon.
