Back in the early 2000s, it was common to hear people lament that “MTV doesn’t even play music videos anymore.” But what we didn’t realize back then is that we were actually living in a golden age of MTV programming, thanks in part to shows like Celebrity Deathmatch. So I’m happy to report that those violent claymation celebs are coming back for another round.
The new Celebrity Deathmatch is coming back to MTV (or, more precisely, MTV2), according to a recent report from The Hollywood Reporter. And since we’re now solidly into the 21st century, the new version of the show will have a strong social media component, taking inspiration from modern-day Twitter beefs and feuds.
Hopefully, the new version of Celebrity Deathmatch will retain the beautiful-yet-hilarious claymation style of the original series, but we’ll have to wait a bit for more information on the show to become available. Until then, feast your senses on one of the all-time classic Celebrity Deathmatch fights below:
