Fear Factor is coming back after almost half a decade after the
show's cancellation due to many issues. The National Broadcasting
Company has decided to bring back this classic series when they
realized that the show's earlier episodes still drew good TRP's on
their other network Channel Chiller. According to reports, NBC has
asked the show to record 10 episodes.
Paul Telegdy, the head of NBC's alternative programming, said
that no other show has even come close to doing what has already
been done on Fear Factor. The show now aims to feature scarier and
bolder stunts as camera and stunt technologies have improved. David
Hurwitz and Matt Kunitz, the original executive producers of this
are getting back to do their magic on the new episodes. There are
also rumours that Joe Rogan, the original host of Fear Factor may
be coming back.
“Joe was a great host. I think his brand and his personality is
associated with this show. We'll sit down with Joe and see if
something he even wants to do. He'll certainly be very high on the
list," David Goldberg, chairman of Endemol North America (Producer
of Fear Factor) told the Entertainment Weekly.
