Gladiators was one of the most popular shows of the ’90s. Here’s everything you need to know about the reboot.

Every ’90s family remembers the electric adrenaline coursing through their veins when Gladiators came on TV every Saturday night.

It’s been almost 30 years since Aussie reality TV was marked by an iconic addition: a fitness challenge game show to rival all game shows.  

Each week, brave Contenders faced off against some of the strongest, fastest, tenacious, and skilled resident competitors – the Gladiators – in gruelling challenges. This created an exceptional, action-packed event that kept millions of Aussies on the edge of their seats every single episode.

Now, after 28 years since its original debut, the wait is over, and Gladiators is back – this time on 10 and 10 Play – for a glorious revival on January 15. 

To celebrate, we’ve compiled absolutely everything you need to know about the triumphant reboot. Here’s exactly what you can expect…

Gladiators will be hosted by familiar favourites. 

To welcome back its legions of fans, as well as a new generation of watchers, Gladiators has tasked the best of our Aussie legends to offer their sporting expertise and charm to the show.

Liz Ellis, deemed the princess of Netball for being royalty on the court, is a sportswoman Australia has come to know and love fondly. She’ll be hosting the series alongside another familiar favourite, Beau Ryan.

Many will remember him for his speed and agility on the field, paving a successful career in the NRL… but for so many of us, he became the Aussie larrikin we adored on The Footy Show.
