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.
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.
