Plot Synopsis

Hosted by Rutledge Wood, FLOOR IS LAVA is a half-hour competition game show during which teams navigate rooms flooded with lava by leaping from chairs, hanging from curtains and swinging from chandeliers -- just like the children's game, except the lava is no longer make-believe. In each 30-minute episode, three trios attempt to to complete the same course. In the series opener, "The Basement: Level 1," a mom and her college-bound twins, three pastors and identical triplets use a mummy, an ark and assorted antiquities to traverse a flooded basement. On Friday, June 19, 2020 at 3:01am ET/12:01am PT, Netflix released the entire 10-episode first season of FLOOR IS LAVA.

The sophomore season of FLOOR IS LAVA debuted on Friday, June 3, 2022, as Netflix released five episodes. The series is back with bigger obstacles, higher stakes, and even hotter lava. New this season: a huge and very slippery volcano that takes the competition to the next level.
On Friday, September 30, 2022, Netflix released the entire five-episode third season of FLOOR IS LAVA. More teams enter the lava-filled courses with confidence and bravado. But after navigating the slippery obstacles, that's rarely how they exit. In the season opener, "All Fun and Games," the Family Campers, Good Genes and the Analysts compete to cross the lava-filled game room. Up for grabs: $10,000 and a coveted "Floor Is Lava" lamp.
