Australian Ninja Warrior

    Australian Ninja Warrior, the TV show that swept the nation and created household names from everyday Australians, is back, Sunday, July 8, at 7.00pm on Nine.

    With a swag of returning heroes and a fresh set of eager new competitors, Australian Ninja Warrior promises to be bigger, stronger and more exciting than ever as our Ninjas tackle the world’s toughest obstacle course and the almighty colossus that stands between them and ultimate victory: Mount Midoriyama.

    Rebecca Maddern, Ben Fordham and Freddie Flintoff are there to take us through every heart-pounding moment as our Ninjas get their shot at glory on Ninja Island. 

    Nine’s Head of Content Production and Development, Adrian Swift, said: “This year we have last year’s best, fresh from 12 months of hard training and taking on a whole new crop desperate to get to Mt Midoriyama.

    “This program is a national phenomenon. Hundreds of Australians have spent a year training for this moment and millions of viewers will be watching to see who could become this country’s first ever Ninja Warrior. Who will it be?” 

    The first series in 2017 delivered an average audience of 1.79 million viewers per episode and secured its place as the highest rating program launch of the year across the 5 city metro. The series dominated its timeslot with a +58% share for all key demographics and became the year’s most talked about show on social with 14.1 million videos views on Facebook.  

    Australian Ninja Warrior offers more ways for brands to connect with Australian audiences, with content being distributed at scale across broadcast, digital, BVOD and social.
