Plot Synopsis

Hosted and executive produced by Dwayne Johnson, THE TITAN GAMES is an athletic competition that offers everyday people the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to compete in remarkable feats designed to test mind, body and heart. Liam McHugh and Alex Mendez commentate from the skybox and Cari Champion reports from inside the arena. Men and women across the country seize the opportunity to step inside the Titan arena and achieve the impossible. Competitors push their bodies to the limit by battling opponents in unforgiving head-to-head challenges, designed by Johnson. THE TITAN GAMES not only tests the competitors' physical strength, but also their mental and emotional fortitude. Winners advance to the ultimate challenge of Mt. Olympus, the consummate athletic test of speed, strength, agility and endurance. In each episode, the male and female competitors who conquer Mt. Olympus become a Titan. In the end, the Titans return to battle each other, where one woman and one man are crowned Titan Champions.

THE TITAN GAMES returned for its second season on Monday, May 25, 2020 from 8-10pm ET/PT on NBC. Two-time Olympic gold-medal winning and current undisputed boxing world champion Claressa Shields, NFL Iron Man Legend and 10x Pro-Bowler Joe Thomas, Super Bowl champion Victor Cruz, Olympic gold-medal winning snowboarder Hannah Teter, professional stunt woman and star AMERICAN NINJA WARRIOR STAR Jessie Graff, and five-time UFC champion Tyron Woodley have all accepted the challenge to join the competition. In addition to the new Celebrity Titans, Season 2 includes completely new elements to the competition including a brand-new Titan arena, Mount Olympus and never-before-seen challenges alongside returning favorites.

Johnson said, "this season of THE TITAN GAMES is going to be even bigger than last season. We created an incredible new Titan arena with new insane challenges, and we've gone out and selected some of the fiercest competitors we've ever seen. For the first time ever, our everyday Titans will go head to head with elite athletes from the Olympics, NFL, UFC and beyond to compete for Titan glory. All of these men and women are true athletes and competitors who give it their all in the Titan arena."

This season, the competition breaks down into three regional brackets: West, Central and East. Within each region, one male and one female professional athlete serve as Titans. Each episode during regional competition sees two contenders of each gender battle in a best-of-three competition on epic new and fan-favorite obstacles. They are fighting for the chance to compete on Mount Olympus, Johnson's all-encompassing final obstacle that tests strength, speed, stamina and heart. In order to become a Titan, the competitors need to defeat one of Johnson's professional Titans and then maintain that position on top of Mount Olympus. Those who lose on Mt. Olympus have a shot at redemption during the Regional Finals and one last chance to take on the reigning Titan. Ultimately, one male and one female earn the title of Regional Champion and move on the finale. In the finale, the reigning Titans return to battle against one another, with one man and one woman emerging as Titan Champion and each winning a grand prize of $100,000. If one of the professional athletes wins, their prize money goes to a charity of their choosing.

In the two-hour season opener, "The Titan Games Premiere," Johnson reveals the competition's new format with regional brackets and the addition of Professional Athlete Titans representing each region. In this episode, competitors from the Central division will compete in a best of three competition where the winner will move on to battle a Pro-Athlete Titan on Mt. Olympus, the consummate athletic test of speed, strength, agility and endurance. Female competitors will have to face two-time Olympic gold-medal winning and current undisputed boxing world champion Claressa Shields, while the males will take on NFL Iron Man Legend and 10x Pro-Bowler Joe Thomas. Cari Champion and Alex Mendez serve as commentators.
