Three specials coming over the next year...

Fans can look forward to three American Ninja Warrior specials

During each season of the show, special competitions are filmed after the regularly scheduled activities. Usually, we can expect two additional episodes, but this time around there's even more action to look forward to. There are three brand new specials on the way. We don't know yet when they will air, but we've been given clearance to tell you what to expect!

* The second annual Women's Championship
* The first-ever family competition (Relay races and a Power Tower face-off will determine the first family of Ninja Warrior)
* The return of the American Ninja Warrior All-Stars Competition

So let's address the question we know you're thinking about right now. No, there is no USA vs the World competition this time around. We're not privy to the production decision process, but we imagine that organizing an international competition while still filming under strict pandemic protocols would have been a bit of a challenge.

We don't know yet when the three specials will air, but as soon as we hear more we'll bring you the news.

Just finished this, very entertaining, they designed it to not give away a million bucks. Two things I love about ANW: your sex does not matter and you must focus on every single obstacle.
They definitely don't make it easy. Not sure how many have actually made it to the tower, but I think only two have completed it in the time allowed. We don't watch every single episode, but we do enjoy watching when we do watch.

Three.

2015: Geoff Britten (29.65) and Isaac Caldiero (26.14 secs). Geoff became the "First American Ninja Warrior" because he ran first, Isaac won the $1MM

2019: Daniel Gil (timed out) and Drew Drechsel (27.46). Drew won the $1MM.

2021: Kaden Lebsack (timed out)

SAN ANTONIO - A fan favorite show of strength and stamina is coming to San Antonio.

American Ninja Warrior is making its way back to the Alamo City in a couple of months. They just announced they’re coming to the Alamodome in March.

There will be five full days of competition for the regional qualifiers. It’s the second time American Ninja Warrior has been in our city and the first time at the Alamodome. Four hundred ninjas will be competing - with the top qualifiers heading to Los Angeles in April.

The show is set to premiere in June and spectators are welcome to the Dome to watch all the fun. So mark your calendars for March 20-24!

Getting ready to kick off. I've been following some Houston-area ninjas who have been prepping for months, trying to peak right >< now.


NBC's American Ninja Warrior is coming back to San Antonio this March to film the first episodes of its new season. According to the San Antonio Film Commission, the production will have 275 plus people on the crew and between 40 to 50 staff members from San Antonio.

In 2017, American Ninja Warrior filmed two episodes in downtown San Antonio for the show's ninth season. On Monday, March 14, the San Antonio Film Commission wrote in a Facebook post that the city has been coordinating with key stakeholders to ensure all logistics for the show's set-up and filming runs as smoothly as possible.
The show is taping its first episodes for the new season on March 20, March 21, March 22, March 23, and March 24 at the Alamodome. The indoor event allows residents to cheer on the competitors, however, all must grab tickets via on-camera-audiences.com.

Fun episode! Couple of breakout stars coming up on the women's side. That axe thrower is fierce! Love her energy.

But in the end, it came down to the top two women ninjas again. Great finish.

Wonder when this was filmed? Last year, or as part of this year's qualifiers? I'm gonna guess it was a year ago.

Yes, it was a year ago. That's why Jessie Graff didn't compete (injury).

It was good to see Flex LaBreck get that one win. Although I consider her the best woman in the regular competition, I think she might be a bit more beatable in the PowerTower format because she tends to be more deliberate. If they start letting in kids (as they did in the regular show), her chances might get even lower.

Thanks, that's what I thought. They mentioned that Barclay Stockett hadn't been training much, and wasn't in shape. And that made me think it was last year, when this was true. But I follow her on Instagram, and she's been training like a fool for the last few months, and she just finished competing in San Antonio. Hopefully to better results.

The first night is in the books. And once again, the kids are killing it. I guess weighing 114 does have its advantages (like I would know 😵 ).

That last girl that ran was amazing. Fifteen years old, and finished the course. Impressive!

I don't need all the histrionics. A little less boo-yah, and a little more ninja-ing.

We didn't see a lot of big-name ninjas tonight. Saving them for the latter episodes?
