“Celebrity Deathmatch” is making a return.
According to Variety, MTV Studios is teaming up with Ice Cube and the show’s original creator Eric Fogel to bring back Celebrity Deathmatch. Conversations are still in the opening stages as the series is still looking for a permanent home. However, things may be facilitated with Cube on board. MTV Studios has stated that, with the new project, they plan to “reimagine [Celebrity Deathmatch] … for a new generation.”
The President of MTV issued the following statement: “’Deathmatch’ was the meme before memes, remains a hot topic on social media and will be a smart, funny way to tackle the over-the-top rhetoric of today’s pop culture where it belongs – in the wrestling ring.” Ice Cube is also set to star in the reboot.
