MTV2 has never really been a purveyor of great new ideas. Now, the network will be harkening back to the MTV of a few years ago, and will be bringing Nick Cannon Presents Wild ‘N Out back onto the air. Granted, this isn’t the worst idea I’ve ever seen from MTV’s sister network (Have your seen Hip Hop Squares?).

MTV2 is stating the network is bringing the show back due to “popular demand,” and while the program will still feature two improv comedy teams competing through battles for points that will ultimately lead to a win or loss. While the basic format of the 2005-2007 will be maintained in the new version of Wild ‘N Out, Cannon is reporting the show will feature some differences from the original.
“I’m thrilled to announce that the show will be making its long awaited return very soon--bigger and better.”

Additionally, the show will invest in new talent for the re-envisioning of Wild ‘N Out. The original version of the series featured funnymen ranging from Taran Killam, Talib Kweli, and Katt Williams, etc. Each of those people have gone on to various levels of success outside of Wild ‘N Out and Cannon would like to give up-and-coming comedians a chance to launch their careers via the program. The show generally targets funny young men, and if you think you have the chance to make an impression on the series, you can head over to NCredible for casting information.

Cannon is executive producing the series, along with MTV2’s Candida Boyette Clemons and Paul Ricci, and NCredible’s Michael Goldman. The show is expected to premiere sometimes in 2013, and we’ll keep you posted if important casting news wafts our way.
