If you’ve watched Celebrity Deathmatch on MTV before, you’ll remember…well, you’ll remember that it was just violent. It was not just violent, it was over the top extreme violence acted out using stop motion techniques and a lot of imagination.


Two celebrities, usually horribly voiced, faced off in a no-holds-barred battle (usually) to the death. It wasn’t for the faint of heart, nor was it for people looking for something realistic. The creators went out of their way to make the most gory death scenes ever.


And it was brilliant.

Unfortunately, after 75 episodes in its 4 year run between 1998 and 2002, it was canceled, then revived in 2005, then canceled again in 2007.

Which brings me to my announcement. The Hollywood Reporter announced that MTV2 will be bringing back Celebrity Deathmatch AGAIN in glorious fashion. Once again, Eric Fogel will be behind the helm with Chris McCarthy and Paul Ricci as Executive Directors.

How long will this incarnation last? Comment below!
