In December, several additional seasons of the popular competition reality show, The Challenge, are set to join the Netflix platform.

This will give fans a way to reminisce and first-time viewers a chance to catch up on two of the classic seasons that introduced several new stars to the series.

It’ll also provide additional episodes to watch while new installments arrive weekly on MTV for Spies, Lies & Allies, and Paramount Plus for The Challenge: All Stars 2 spinoff series.

Netflix to add more seasons of The Challenge for streaming

Based on details from What’s on Netflix, two more seasons are on the way to the streaming platform, with The Challenge Season 12 and 25.

Season 12 of The Challenge was the original Fresh Meat season of MTV’s show, which aired from May through September of 2006.

The Challenge’s 25th season was Free Agents, which originally aired from April through June of 2014. Both of these seasons of MTV’s competition series will join Netflix on December 15, 2021. The platform currently offers the Inferno II and The Duel seasons for streaming.

With Season 12, viewers saw a new theme for Fresh Meat. This involved bringing individuals into the cast who hadn’t appeared on MTV’s Road Rules and Real World. Alumni from those two shows teamed up with rookies. Casey Cooper, Kenny Santucci, Ryan Kehoe, Evelyn Smith, and Diem Brown were among the newcomers.

Season 25, Free Agents, includes two cast members recently in headlines. This past month, Leroy Garrett released a video in which he spoke about his experience during the show with racism. Leroy brought up an incident from Season 30, aka Dirty 30, which involved castmate Camila Nakagawa launching a racist rant towards him during an episode.

MTV released a response to Leroy’s video in which he brought up how the experience affected him, ultimately causing him to retire from the show.
