MTV Reviving Celebrity Deathmatch with Ice Cube Starring & Producing

Studios is reviving another classic MTV series, "Celebrity Deathmatch".

"Happy to once again be working with Viacom and MTV on a fan favorite like Celebrity Deathmatch and to continue our success together", said Ice Cube.

Original Celebrity Deathmatch creator Eric Fogel will executive produce the revival alongside Ice Cube. Time to get back into the ring.

The all-new "Celebrity Deathmatch" will be shopped as a weekly series to premium and streaming networks in 2019. The move marks the first step in reinventing the franchise across consumer products, gaming, theatrical and more. Stay with MTV News for more Celebrity Deathmatch-related updates, and share your favorite moments from the parody program in the comments. Cube Vision is producing "Hip Hop Squares", a take on the classic game show "Hollywood Squares", for MTV sibling VH1.

Ice Cube/Cube Vision are represented by WME. "Deathmatch was the meme before memes", says McCarthy, continuing that the show "remains a hot topic on social media and will be a smart, amusing way to tackle the over-the-top rhetoric of today's pop culture where it belongs - in the wrestling ring".

If you're not in tune with the golden content that Celebrity Deathmatch brought us during its first run on MTV, you may be lucky enough to be witnessing its rebirth. MTV2 then relaunched the show for two seasons in 2006 and 2007, with the network then ordering a pilot for a reboot in 2015 that did not go to series.
