MTV Studios & Ice Cube Are Bringing Back Celebrity Deathmatch

A

Today we add to the list of revivals Celebrity Deathmatch, MTV's hit claymation wrestling franchise that pits stop-motion famous people against other stop-motion famous people. The '90s version had Judge Mills Lane as the referee. Series creator Eric Fogel will return to executive produce as well, with additional showrunners and talent to be named shortly. Jeff Kwatinetz of Cube Vision will also executive produce with Ben Hurwitz co-executive producing.

Ice Cube and Cube Vision are repped by WME.

"Celebrity Deathmatch" is among the most beloved series in a long line of MTV animation classics. Its actual release seems to be pending in 2019 in terms of specifics, but it's stated it will be available via an SVOD or network partner...details to come, I guess.

The revival will be produced by Ice Cube, who will also lead the new show's voice cast. Ice Cube said that he is "Happy to once again be working with Viacom and MTV on a fan favorite like Celebrity Deathmatch and to continue our success together".

The original series premiered on May 14, 1998, and ended on October 20, 2002, airing for 75 episodes.

If you're not in tune with the golden content that Celebrity Deathmatch brought us during its first run on MTV, you may be lucky enough to be witnessing its rebirth.

The show previously returned in 2015 but here's hoping that it sticks around for a bit longer. It was previously revived in 2006 and aired on MTV2. Fogel is repped by Gotham Group.
