After five years off the air, the sketch show series will be back next year with Cannon as producer and host.
"Nick Cannon Presents: Wild 'N Out" is revived with Nick Cannon on board. The host has confirmed to THR that the improv comedy sketch show has been revived by MTV2 through his NCredible Entertainment production house.
"I get asked everyday when Wild 'N Out will be back," Cannon said. "I'm thrilled to announce that the show will be making its long-awaited return very soon - bigger and better. With our show's original cast, everyone from Kevin Hart to Katt Williams, Affion Crockett and Taran Killam becoming household names, I am looking forward to working with MTV2 as we work to introduce the biggest comedic stars of tomorrow with the return of Wild 'N Out."
The show first debuted in 2005 and lasted four seasons, becoming the network's highest-rated shows in history. The revived show will premiere next year with some familiar faces returning. Casting and audition information are available at Ncredible.com.
"Building on our long-standing relationship with Nick Cannon, we are ecstatic to welcome his creative genius back to the MTV family," MTV2 senior vp programming and production Paul Ricci said. "The remixed Wild 'N Out will deliver a high-energy, clever and hilarious addition to MTV2's original programming lineup."
