MTV Reveals There’s A ‘Celebrity Deathmatch’ Reboot On The Way

MTV Has Announced That There Will Be A New Reboot Of Celebrity Deathmatch.

I must have been too young or oblivious when the first Celebrity Deathmatch was broadcasted on MTV, back when all MTV showed was music.

However, if I was aware of the show, it would have been the shit.

Celebrity Deathmatch was everyone’s favourite stop-motion animation parody series that pitted celebrities against each other in a spoof wrestling match – including everyone from Hanson and the Spice Girls all the way through to Ozzy Osbourne and Elton John.

The show originally ran for 93 episodes across six seasons between 1998 and 2002, before there was a revival show that ran from 2006 to 2007 on MTV2.

MTV2 tried for a third time to reboot the show, filming a pilot in 2015. Third time lucky I suppose.  However, the creator Eric Fogel announced on Twitter that MTV has decided not to pick this up.

Well, if you get knocked down, you have got to get back up again, and again and again, and thankfully Celebrity Deathmatch just keeps on trying.

Christ McCarthy, president of MTV, VH1 and CMT confirms:

We’re excited to grow our partnership with Ice Cube and Cube Vision to reimagine this fan favorite.

Deathmatch was the meme before memes, remains a hot topic on social media and will be a smart, funny way to tackle the over-the-top rhetoric of today’s pop culture where it belongs – in the wrestling ring.

I could not have put it better myself, however, some fans are sceptical about the reboot, arguing that it ‘won’t be the same’.

One wrote: “Not gonna be the same as before. Everything is gonna be watered down, so it doesn’t offend anyone!

Another tweeted: “Gonna be hard to top the original (and how it in some cases scarred me into repressing most episodes), but also holy crap, I forgot how ugly the show looked.”

Nevertheless, many others are nothing but pumped for its comeback, one writing: “Oh my god yes!!!!”

Another tweeting: “Looks like MTV is finally worth watching again!”

Some even started throwing in some suggestions, and with all the beef going around at the moment the show could go on for so many episodes.

I mean, I’ve got high hopes for this, it has the potential to be really good but let us be completely honest here, nothing ever tops the original. And with the way the cultural and political climate is going, let’s see if it will be able to be as brutal as the first show was made out to be.
