According to a report from the Hollywood Reporter, MTV2 is bringing back Celebrity Deathmatch for a new season. This is great news, because it really is time to see the likes of Miley Cyrus and Justin Bieber slugging it out in the ring. The show—which once saw Kid Rock fight Eminem, Mariah Carey fight Jim Carrey and Madonna fight Michael Jackson—originally ran for six seasons and will be returning eight years after its original end.
“Eight years after its six-season run came to an end, Celebrity Deathmatch creator Eric Fogel and Wasteland Entertainment are behind the new incarnation, with Chris McCarthy and Paul Riccialso on board as executive producers. The new version will again feature animated no-holds-barred fantasy fights between infamous figures from entertainment and pop culture and will be reimagined for a social media world and hourly Twitter wars. (Watch one of the original battles, between Michael Jacksonand Madonna, below.)”
