“The Challenge: All Stars,” a Paramount+ series based on MTV’s “The Challenge” game show, has become a successful spin-off. The competition matches former “The Challenge” contestants against one another, all of whom have previously appeared on Paramount-produced reality series. This creates a fascinating mix of people: for example, you might see someone from “The Real World” competing against someone from “Big Brother.” The contestants are then eliminated one by one until only three remain, with the winner getting a monetary award and a trophy.
“The Challenge: All Stars” matches former winners of “The Challenge” against one another in a competition to see who can win both physical and mental challenges. As in the original “The Challenge,” candidates are removed one by one until only one champion remains, who then receives the appropriate reward and trophy.
Fortunately for fans of the show, Paramount recently confirmed that “The Challenge: All Stars” would return in 2022 for a third season. Here’s everything we know thus far about it.
When will The Challenge: All-Stars Season 3 be released?
Season 3 of “The Challenge: All-Stars” has yet to be given a release date. Filming for the second season began in the fall of 2021, according to Bustle, so it’s expected to premiere on Paramount+ sooner rather than later. After all, Seasons 1 and 2 were released in a short period of time. Season 1 premiered in April 2021, followed by Season 2 in November of the same year. That’s only seven months between seasons, so if Season 3 follows the same path, we may expect it to premiere on Paramount+ in June 2022.
All of this is subject to change at this time, so stay tuned for additional information as it becomes available.
Who will appear in Season 3 of The Challenge: All-Stars?
The next season of “The Challenge: All-Stars,” as has always been the case, will bring together a number of familiar faces to determine who will emerge victorious amid a cast of veterans. MTV and Paramount haven’t said who will appear in the new season, but several leaks released by Bustle suggest it may be a rather packed group of episodes. Yes Duffy, who won the first season of “All-Stars,” is the most notable newcomer among the male contenders. Mark Long, Laterrian Wallace, Wes Bergmann, Tyler Duckworth, Syryus Yarbrough, Nehemiah Clark, MJ Garrett (Season 2 winner), Jordan Wiseley, Derrick Kosinski, Darrell Taylor, and Brad Fiorenza are among the other possible castmates.
The trailer for Season 3 of The Challenge: All-Stars leaves a lot to the imagination.
At press time, there was no full trailer for the third season of “The Challenge: All-Stars,” and no publicly available footage from the season. Perhaps this is due to the fact that Paramount+ has yet to reveal the show’s cast, and the network would prefer to keep the participants’ identities a secret. However, we do have a quick teaser film, which was released to the show’s Instagram on January 20 and can be seen above.
The tiny trailer shows Lavin and reveals that upcoming season would be set in Panama, as reported by Entertainment Weekly. In it, Lavin pledges that this season would be “no holds barred,” as he turns to the camera and says, “Did you think that was a good idea? Just wait until you see what I’ve got planned for them next.”
Fans of “The Challenge” will undoubtedly be surprised by whatever the show has in store, but they’ll have to wait until the spring to find out how and by whom.
Where will Season 3 of The Challenge: All-Stars take place?
This season of “The Challenge: All-Stars” will take place in Panama, according to Entertainment Weekly and a teaser posted on MTV’s Instagram. This is the franchise’s second visit to Panama, following the filming of “The Challenge: The Island” on the country’s Colón Island in 2008. (per IMDb). This will be the first time the “All-Stars” franchise has visited Central America. Season 1 was filmed in Argentina’s Andes Mountains, and Season 2 was filmed in Cancn, Mexico, according to IMDb.
This maintains Paramount’s trend of holding “All-Stars” competitions in warm, mountainous areas. It’s fascinating to compare this choice of location to the several settings used in “The Challenge.” Seasons have been filmed in places as diverse as Telluride, Colorado (“The Challenge: The Gauntlet”), Somerset West, South Africa (“The Challenge: The Inferno 3”), and Krabi, Thailand (“The Challenge: Invasion of Champions”).
