Re: Season 9


The axe has been falling at TBS, TNT and other WarnerBros Discovery projects today with several shows announced as axed, including a dating show already filmed and due to air in just two weeks.


So far no news at all about Wipeout - so for now it's not been axed.

However the person who was responsible for overseeing Wipeout and The Cube at TBS, Corie Henson - the Head of Unscripted - is among the numerous executives who have departed in recent weeks.

A contestant from the episode that was supposed to air as the original season 9 sneak peek posted this a few days ago.

Unfortunately our episode air date got postponed and we honestly don’t know if it’s ever going to air…



With the episode titles being released and Wipeout somehow surviving all the cancellations, I'd say the show has a good shot of airing. Even if TBS axes the show I'm pretty sure Endomol would be able to put it in syndication. Not 100% sure if they could so don't quote me on that.

Re: Season 9


Whoa, wasn’t expecting that. I thought maybe this course would be the end but figured the remaining 18 episodes were all but guaranteed to air. I do think they will, but I feel bad for the competitors who have been looking forward to this for the past year. I really hope they get paid regardless and it’s not one of those “We only give you the prize if we air the episode” things. That would be BS.

Re: Season 9


I think it is safe to assume there is not going to be a summer run now as it would surely have been announced. US shows usually confirm their premiere dates weeks, if not months, before they're due to air.


I'm sure they'll turn up at some point on TBS, even if it's 10 episodes next year and the remaining 10 in 2024. If they don't they'll surely be put on the associated streamer or crop up abroad.

Re: Season 9


Wow, so it really is looking rough for future Wipeout. Though honestly, I never expected a proper Summer run; they seem to just do them where it fits.

If we don't hear about anything for the Fall, I'd say then would be high time to start worrying.

Good thing I've given this show literally zero thought over the past several months anyway emoticon

Re: Season 9


I think TBS is trying to stretch out their new stuff as a cost saving measure. Rat in the Kitchen just ended a few weeks ago and Chad has a new season coming out July 11th. We'll probably have to wait until the end of Chad for Wipeout.

Maybe. But the way they run it all seems so sloppy

Re: Season 9


All we really need is the two episodes from the new course with the other starters. We'll have seen everything there is to see then and the other 16 hours showing us the same obstacles is time saved for us all.

Heck, we don't even need the full episodes. Just a couple of YouTube clips showing only the first part of the qualifier would cover that.

Re: Season 9


I stopped paying attention to the reboot won't lie so haven't watched anything after that first run of 10. Have they aired any episodes with the new course yet & which episodes would those be? Was thinking of watching an ep or two.
