The series gives men and women an opportunity to step inside the Titan arena and push their bodies to the limit by battling opponents in unforgiving head-to-head challenges, designed by Johnson. Winners advance to the ultimate challenge of Mount Olympus, the consummate athletic test of speed, strength, agility and endurance. The Titan Games tests competitors’ physical, mental and emotional strength.
“When we launched The Titan Games, we set out to create an entirely new athletic competition series unlike anything ever done before,” Johnson said. “Season 1 was epic and our Titans pushed all boundaries, so for season two we are taking it to the next level with new challenges, a new arena setting and an incredible set of competitors.”
The Titan Games is produced by A. Smith & Co. Productions in association with Universal Television Alternative Studio and Seven Bucks Productions. Johnson, Arthur Smith, Dany Garcia, Hiram Garcia, Brian Gewirtz and Anthony Storm executive produce.
