Presented by T. J. Lavin, ‘The Challenge: All Stars’ is a reality game show where contestants compete to win $500,000. It is a part of the famous ‘The Challenge’ franchise where people from all walks of life perform physical and mental tasks to win the competition. ‘The Challenge: All Stars’ is a tweaked-up version of the latter where fan-favorites from the show assemble and play the game.
Ever since its inception in 2021, the show has received a lot of hype owing to the popularity of the parent series. The prevailing drama defined by existing feuds and ego also adds to the thrill. So if you’re wondering if the series will air the third season anytime soon, we have your back!
The Challenge: All Stars Season 3 Release Date
‘The Challenge: All Stars’ season 2 released on November 11, 2021, on Paramount+ and finished airing on January 12, 2022. The second season has ten episodes, each with a runtime of around 90 minutes.
If you are curious about season 3, here’s all that we know. As compared to ‘The Challenge,’ this spin-off is a small extension that airs on Paramount+. So, we can’t paint a certain picture as far as its future is concerned because MTV does not house it. However, reports suggested that the third season of ‘The Challenge: All Stars’ started filming even before the second season hit the screens. Apparently, the cast flew to Panama to film the upcoming edition of the reality series. So, this could only mean that the exciting reality TV is returning soon, and it is only a matter of time before a premiere date is formally announced.
If we take a look at the release pattern of the show, the third season seems likely to air during springtime in 2022. Season 1 aired in April 2021, whereas season 2 rolled out in November 2021. With only seven months of gap between both the editions, it seems that the release date of season 3 will be announced soon. Taking all these factors into consideration, we expect ‘The Challenge: All Stars’ season 3 to release sometime in Q2 2022 or later.

What Will The Challenge: All Stars Season 3 be About?
Season 3 will pit 25 cast members from the franchise against each other. According to the format of the game, the contestants will go through three rounds per episode. The first round is the daily challenge that decides who is immune for the week. The next step is the nominations which is basically a prerequisite for the eliminations phase, which is the last part of the episode. Two teams having a male and a female contestant each compete in the last round, and the pair that loses leaves the game. So, season 3 will more or less retain the observed format besides housing more drama and feuds between the cast members.
