If you can conquer this obstacle course, you’re a true beast.
Ultimate Beastmaster, Sylvester Stallone’s new Netflix series, unites dozens of competitors from around the world to see if they can get through what Stallone calls “one of the most physically demanding obstacle courses ever devised."
As shown in a new trailer for the 10-episode series set to premiere February 24, the obstacle course is literally a beast. The set is designed in the shape of a gigantic (mostly dragon DNA, we're guessing) and features tricked-out obstacles that put American Ninja Warrior to shame.
Update: Clearly, everyone enjoyed the wild spectacle of Ultimate Beastmaster—Netflix has renewed the series for a second season, according to Variety. The report says that the new hosts for the second series will be former NFL star Tiki Barber and comedian Chris DiStefano. The teams will be competing from Spain, France, Italy, China, India, U.S., Mexico, Brazil and South Korea, and the new season will debut Dec. 15 on Netflix worldwide.
For the first season: Among the 108 competitors: An Olympic medalist, a champion rock climber, a professional ice climber, and a champion of Sasuke (basically Japan’s Ninja Warrior equivalent) are among the 108 competitors from six different nations looking to be crowned the winner.
Stallone will get some hosting help from famous faces from each the represented nations, including musclebound actor (and Instagram workout enthusiast) Terry Crews and Fox Sports star Charissa Thompson for the United States, former UFC champion Anderson Silva for Brazil, sportscaster Ines Sainz for Mexico, former soccer player Hans Sarpei for Germany, actor Seo Kyung Suk for South Korea, and sports anchor Yuji Kondo for Japan.
Ultimate Beastmaster hits Netflix on February 24.
