New York, NY – WEBWIRE

On the heels of the highest rated season of “The Challenge” in seven years, MTV unveils the highly anticipated “The Challenge: War of the Worlds 2,” set to premiere on Wednesday, August 28 at 8:00PM ET/PT with expanded 90-minute episodes.

Following “The Challenge: War of the Worlds,” the lines have been drawn between the U.K. and the U.S. players.  Set in the middle of the jungle, “The Challenge: War of the Worlds 2” returns to a classic team format; 14 Brits will battle it out against 14 Americans for their share of the $1 million-dollar prize.

In the premiere episode, the winning team will have the first pick from the lineup of “reinforcements,” featuring all-stars CT Tamburello, Dee Nguyen, ‘Ninja’ Natalie Duran, and last season’s champion, Turabi ‘Turbo’ Camkiran.

After turning on each other last season, will the Americans be able to unite in order to reclaim the throne against the unstoppable British alliance?
