The Challenge season 35: UK air date

You can’t watch the new series of The Challenge just yet. MTV will air the show across its international channels in the next few months.

The broadcaster hasn’t confirmed an official UK date yet, but we expect season 35 to arrive later this summer.

For instance, series 34 aired in December 2019 (original US release was in August), so The Challenge: Total Madness should premiere in August 2020.
