In news that just fills us with nostalgia, MTV2 announced on Tuesday that its planning on bringing back Celebrity Deathmatch, that animated series where your fav celebs duked it out to see who would live in a fight to the death.
MTV’s sister channel ordered a single 1-hour pilot to see if there’s any interest in such a violent genre with today’s current youth, but the network is going to make sure to include social media-friendly material to appeal to its current demographic.
But this isn’t actually the first time CDM has been revived ; it ran for two seasons back in ’06-’07 following its original four-season run, after premiering in 1998.
In addition to the death-related news, MTV2 also announced two new reality series.
The second series, Uncommon Sense with Charlamagne the God, will be more of a panel comedy show with Charlamagne from Girl Code and Guy Code.
These all sound like pretty smart investments to us, so we’re really hoping all three get picked up to series!
Would U tune in to a Celebrity Deathmatch for today’s celebs??
