TVLine Items: Celebrity Deathmatch Returns, Orphan Black Binge and More

Celebrity Deathmatch MTV2

Yet another ’90s TV reboot is stepping into the ring.

MTV2 has given a pilot order to a revival of Celebrity Deathmatch, the claymation series that originally ran on MTV from 1998 to 2002, per The Hollywood Reporter.

The new version of Deathmatch, which pits pop culture staples against each other in fantasy wrestling matches, also will incorporate a social media element to the fights.

Creator Eric Fogel will executive-produce the revival, alongside Paul Ricci (Guy Code) and Chris McCarthy (Wild ‘n Out).
