‘The Challenge’ Season 37: How to Watch Premiere of ‘Spies, Lies, and Allies’

MTV’s The Challenge Season 37 is finally here, and fans can’t wait to see what’s in store for Spies, Lies, and Allies. The show has faced various filming difficulties prior to (and during) the season due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, but now, it’s back in action. Here’s when The Challenge Season 37 premieres and how to watch.

Every season of MTV’s The Challenge has tough competitors, but The Challenge Season 37 has a global cast unlike anything fans have seen before. Seventeen U.S. competitors will go head to head with 17 international players — and the veterans are totally outnumbered. Only 14 veteran players out of 34 players total joined the cast.

Who are the returning cast members this season? We’ll see CT Tamburello, the winner of Double Agents, as well as Nelson Thomas, Cory Wharton, Josh Martinez, Kyle Christie, Fessy Shafaat, Devin Walker, and Nam Vo for the men. For the women, Ashley “Millionaire” Mitchell, Nany González, Aneesa Ferreira, Kaycee Clark, Amanda Garcia, Big T Fazakerley, Tori Deal, and Amber Borzotra all return. It seems we might get a veteran “super alliance,” according to the trailer, but we’ll have to see how this unfolds.

As for the newbies, the cast includes players from around the world from shows like Survivor, Love Island, Big Brother, and Ex on the Beach. We’ll have to wait and see if they get together to take out the vets.

When does ‘The Challenge’ Season 37 start? How to watch the new season

MTV’s The Challenge Season 37 premieres Aug. 11, 2021, at 8 p.m. EST. As for how fans can watch the premiere, MTV is the place. Viewers can log in to MTV.com with their cable provider to watch the first episode.

Those who are too excited to wait for the premiere can get additional content via MTV.com, too. The launch special, “Global Activation,” is able to stream with a cable provider via the network’s website.

Additionally, Spies, Lies, and Allies will be available on fuboTV and Philo. And after the premiere airs, Amazon Prime Video will have individual episodes and the entire season to purchase.

Fans who want to catch up on old seasons of the show before The Challenge Season 37 have even more options. Paramount+ has seasons 11-33 available to stream, as well as All Stars. Netflix has seasons 10 and 13. Hulu has seasons 30-32.

What’s next for the show after ‘Spies, Lies, and Allies’?

After MTV’s The Challenge Season 37, what’s next for the show? We anticipate a season 38 and beyond, though we don’t have details regarding what that may entail just yet. And there are plenty of rumors suggesting The Challenge: All Stars Season 2 is well on its way.

Mark Long, a Challenge contestant from years past, put together the initial idea for All Stars. From there, Paramount+ took over and made it happen. While the network hasn’t confirmed a season 2, former Real World contestant Amaya Brecher took to Twitter to talk about it.

“Before anyone asks: I was asked and said ‘no’ to doing the second season of #challengeallstars,” she tweeted in May 2021. “But, yes, there is going to be a whole new crop of your favorites competing on @paramountplus in the near future!”

We look forward to seeing what’s in store for The Challenge Season 37, All Stars Season 2, and whatever else may be in store.
