The Challenge 37 Unit: Spies, Lies and Allies

MTV Africa has announced that the highly anticipated new season of The Challenge: Spies, Lies and Allies will premiere on Monday, August 16th at 20:00 WAT with repeats airing on Wednesdays at 21:00WAT and Saturdays at 16:00WAT.

For the first time ever, the critically-acclaimed competition franchise will feature 17 international players (including BBNaija’s Tacha and Esther) alongside US players and is set to roll out globally across MTV’s international networks in over 190 countries in the coming months.

“Across our brands at VCNA we have adapted global formats with local talent to great success. To now launch a global international series with our local talent is an incredible feat for the continent.” said Monde Twala, Senior Vice President and General Manager at ViacomCBS Networks Africa (VCNA).

“As the world’s leading youth entertainment brand, we are thrilled to expand our content offering with a diverse cast. This year, The Challenge delivers an action-packed series which is amongst the best in international shows.”

A new era of The Challenge kicks off with 19 action-packed episodes featuring 34 challengers from around the world. Set in the picturesque Mediterranean coast of Croatia, elite U.S. Agents join forces with an assortment of International Operatives, all armed with killer competitive instincts. With the assignment constantly evolving, these agents will be tested both mentally and physically to win their share of one million dollars in this epic new chapter of The Challenge spy games.

Coinciding with Spies, Lies and Allies, MTV’s Official Challenge Podcast will kick off with its new season on Thursday, August 12th through the iHeartPodcast Network. Hosted by fan favourite vets Tori Deal and Aneesa Ferreira, the audio show will recap each episode of the current season, reliving the drama of the series’ biggest alliances, frenemies and feuds.

New podcast episodes drop the day after and are available on the iHeartRadio app and everywhere podcasts are heard.
