AIRDATE | Australian Ninja Warrior gets Sunday premiere date on Nine

Nine has confirmed season four of the global phenomenon Australian Ninja Warrior will premiere on Sunday, July 26, at 7.00pm on Nine and 9Now.

It’s a new era with gut-busting new challenges as audiences get a front-row seat to the thrills and spills on the world’s toughest obstacle course, crowned by the gravity-defying Mt Midoriyama. This year, will Australian Ninja Warrior history be made when someone finally conquers it and claims the staggering jackpot prize of $400,000?  

One hundred and forty everyday Aussies have been training in preparation to triumph in Australian Ninja Warrior 2020. They’re mums and dads, tradies and farmers, students and business owners, who will line up to see if they have what it takes to win.

Viewers will be at the edge of their seats as competitors tackle new obstacles on the heartbreaking course and the two fastest and furthest each night strive for a game-changing advantage on the almighty Power Tower, which sees Ninja versus adrenaline-fuelled Ninja for the very first time.

Nine’s Ninja hosts – Rebecca Maddern, Ben Fordham, Freddie Flintoff and Shane Crawford – will be joined by a raft of new heroes and returning favourites, including Olympic gymnast Olivia Vivian, last year’s winner Charlie Robbins, and Australia’s speediest Ninja, Ashlin “Flashin” Herbert.

Nine’s Head of Content Production and Development, Adrian Swift, said:

“There is nothing else like Australian Ninja Warrior on our TV screens. It’s fast-paced, electrifying, action-packed family fun. The inclusion of the Power Tower brings a fresh new element that will have viewers loving the Ninja versus Ninja action.

“After the success of the show last year it was a no-brainer to have the series return to Melbourne, and heading into our fourth season the Ninjas hungry to tackle our brand new course.”
