About “American Ninja Warrior”

“American Ninja Warrior” returns for an exciting eighth season this summer on NBC.

Matt Iseman returns as host, along with former NFL player Akbar Gbajabiamila (NFL Network). Kristine Leahy (FOX Sports) joins this season as co-host. Original episodes air exclusively on NBC with encore presentations on Esquire Network.

The action-packed series follows competitors as they tackle a series of challenging obstacle courses in both city qualifying and city finals rounds across the country. Those that successfully complete the finals course in their designated region move on to the national finals round in Las Vegas, where they face a stunning four-stage course modeled after the famed Mt. Midoriyama course in Japan. The winner takes home a grand prize of $1 million.
