A 90-episode renewal for a television series is almost unheard of these days, but the Nick Cannon-hosted comedy improv competition “Wild ‘N Out” was just picked up by MTV for 90 additional episodes, Deadline reports.
The renewal comes ahead of the show’s 13th season this summer, and will take it through season 16.
“The multi-season pickup is a recognition of ‘Wild ‘N Out’s’ role in MTV’s continuing ratings upswing as the Viacom cable network is pacing for its record seventh consecutive quarter of growth in adults 18-34 and adults 18-49 (Live+3) after launching 5 of the top 10 highest-rated new unscripted cable series of 2018,” Deadline reports. “When in cycle, ‘Wild ‘N Out’ contributed to 10% of MTV’s schedule as well as 10% of the net’s total ratings.”
The report adds: “The most recent full season of ‘Wild ‘N Out’ in summer 2018 was the No. 1 cable series on Friday nights with men 12-24 and men 18-24.”
