NBC has announced the premiere dates for its summer reality TV offerings. So when will we see more of “America’s Got Talent,” “World of Dance,” “American Ninja Warrior” and “Running Wild with Bear Grylls”? And who will be this year’s talented breakout stars like Darci Lynne Farmer and Les Twins?
“America’s Got Talent” and “World of Dance” both return on Tuesday night, May 29. “AGT” will begin season 12 with a 2-hour premiere at 8pm. The talent competition brings together a wide variety of acts from dance to comedy, singing, acrobatics, performance art and more. Last year the show made a star out of child ventriloquist Farmer, who edged out 10-year-old singer Angelica Hale to win the season.
“World of Dance” is back for season two immediately after “AGT” at 10pm. The series is produced by Jennifer Lopez and judged by Lopez, Emmy winning choreographer Derek Hough and Grammy winning singer Ne-Yo. It brings together an array of dancers in a variety of styles, and last year’s top prize ended up going to the French duo Les Twins over young fan-favorite Eva Igo.
“American Ninja Warrior” and “Running Wild” will be back the very next night on Wednesday, May 30. “Ninja” airs its two-hour seventh season premiere at 8pm, challenging athletes from all walks of life to its difficult obstacle courses. Then at 10pm survival expert Grylls will return for a fourth season of some very different kinds of physical challenges, accompanied in the wilderness by a different celebrity in each episode.
