MTV Bringing Back 'Celebrity Deathmatch' & Gore.

MTV Bringing Back 'Celebrity Deathmatch' & Gore.
 
It has been revealed that 'Celebrity Deathmatch' is set to be resurrected. The MTV Studios show that dominated the late-nineties claymation series and infamously pitted famous stars, icons and more against each other in bloody bouts is back again. 
 
Ice Cube is slated to serve as executive producer and lead the new vocal cast. The series tried to come back to viewers and come back in 2015 via MTV2, however, the network decided to decline to fund new episodes. According to the guys over at Hollywood Reporter, the success of their series 'The Real World''s revival after it was picked up by video-on-demand service Facebook Watch inspired the reboot. MTV is pushing several of their now-now-vintage titles for similar pickups, including Daria, Aeon Flux and Made.
 
MTV president Chris McCarthy issued a statement on the series reemergence, citing a growing relationship between Ice Cube's film and television production company Cube Vision and the network. Cube already produces Hip Hop Squares for MTV partner VH1 and was behind Ice Cube film titles like Next Friday, Friday After Next and Barbershop. "Deathmatch was the meme before memes," says McCarthy, continuing that the show "remains a hot topic on social media and will be a smart, funny way to tackle the over-the-top rhetoric of today's pop culture where it belongs — in the wrestling ring." 
 
There is no information on the release date or where the series will be present. However, you can stay updated with us.
