‘Celebrity Deathmatch’ Is Making A Return On MTV2: 13 Of The Most Classic Fights
MTV has transformed into a muddy web of trashy reality shows (Teen Mom, anyone?), but the network is planning to go back to its roots — thanks to the return of Celebrity Deathmatch! The Hollywood Reporter revealed today (April 14) that the claymation television series will be revived on MTV2.
The original series ran for 75 episodes on MTV from 1998-2002, and the show’s creator Eric Fogel and Wasteland Entertainment are behind the new version. Chris McCarthy and Paul Ricci also on board as executive producers, THR reports. The series will continue to take notes from pop culture, but plans to use social media as influence in order to spark some intense Twitter wars. There are definitely many options to choose from: Lady Gaga vs. Madonna, Kanye West vs. Taylor Swift, Rihanna vs. Ciara, Beyonce vs. Keri Hilson, Iggy Azalea vs. The World…the list could go on forever!
Along with the Celebrity Deathmatch revival, MTV2 has also picked up two new series: Kingin’ With Tyga and Uncommon Sense With Charlamagne tha God.
