John Cena’s American Grit isn’t going anywhere. Fox has renewed the extreme competition series for a second season.
Executive produced and hosted by Cena, season 1 featured 16 contestants who were pushed to their limits in a series of challenges that tested strength, willpower, and teamwork. The only way to leave the competition was to give up, and by the end of the series, one man and one woman were left standing. Clare “The Fisherman” Painter and Mark “The Lumberjack” Bouquin won the first season, which ended in June.
Since making the jump from WWE superstar to Hollywood actor, John Cena has enjoyed knockout success in the entertainment industry over the past decade. From well-received supporting roles in recent comedies alongside Amy Schumer in Trainwreck and Tina Fey in Sisters, Cena has maintained a firm grasp on his ever-widening, multi-hyphenate career.
Fox has ordered a military-themed competition series featuring WWE star John Cena and several notable real-life military heroes.
The network has given a 10-episode order to American Grit, where “16 of the country’s toughest men and women will be split into four teams as they work together to face a variety of military-grade and survival-themed challenges.” Each team’s mentors will represent a branch of the U.S. Armed Forces (sort of like a military boot camp version of The X Factor).
