Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is back on TV screens starting tonight on NBC with the second season of the hit athletic competition The Titan Games.
A two-hour premiere episode kicks off at 8PM ET, with other episodes running for an hour every week. Season two contains 13 episodes of everyday people with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to compete in epic head-to-head challenges designed to test the mind, body and heart.
This season, the competition breaks down into three regional brackets: West, Central and East. Within each region, Dwayne Johnson has selected one male and one female professional athlete to serve as Titans.
The preselected Titans are two-time Olympic gold medal-winning and current undisputed boxing world champion Claressa Shields, NFL Iron Man Legend and 10x Pro-Bowler Joe Thomas, Super Bowl champion Victor Cruz, Olympic gold medal-winning snowboarder Hannah Teter, professional stuntwoman and star American Ninja Warrior Jessie Graff and five-time UFC champion Tyron Woodley. All have all accepted the challenge to join the competition.
During regional competition, we will see two contenders of each gender battle in a best-of-three competition on epic new and fan-favorite obstacles. They are fighting for the chance to compete on Mount Olympus, Johnson’s all-encompassing final obstacle that tests strength, speed, stamina and heart. In order to become a Titan, the competitors will need to defeat one of Johnson’s professional Titans and then maintain that position on top of Mount Olympus.
Those who lose on Mount Olympus will have a shot at redemption during the Regional Finals and one last chance to take on the reigning Titan. Ultimately, one male and one female will earn the title of Regional Champion and move on to the finale.
In the finale, the reigning Titans will return to battle against one another, with one man and one woman emerging as Titan Champion and each winning a grand prize of $100,000. If one of the professional athletes wins, their prize money will go to a charity of their choosing.
Titan Games season two was filmed in Georgia.
