Ninja vs Ninja (formerly known as Team Ninja Warrior) Season 1 will air in spring of 2018 on USA network. It is currently scheduled to be 16 episodes.
It consists of 3-person teams (two men and one women) who compete head to head against each other. Unlike the normal American Ninja Warrior TV show, in Team Ninja Warrior, the teams and competitors are racing side by side at the same time on a specially designed course.
At this time, not all details are known, however, it is taking the place of Team Ninja Warrior so will likely continue with the same tournament format, with prelim rounds, followed by knockout rounds and a championship relay.
While not official yet, based on social media postings from the ninjas themselves, here is a partially complete list of ninjas & teams who will be competing on American Ninja Warrior Ninja vs Ninja Season 1 in 2018 (possibly also known as Team Ninja Warrior Season 3).
