Visit Victoria sponsors Australian Ninja Warrior move to Melbourne

• Fan-favourite Ninjas will return to compete alongside fresh faces

Australian Ninja Warrior is losing its dramatic Sydney Harbour location with confirmation that Nine’s smash-hit program will be returning in 2019 for a third season at its new home in Melbourne.

Nine has announced that hosts Rebecca Maddern, Ben Fordham and Freddie Flintoff will return for the next season. Fan-favourite Ninjas will also return to compete alongside fresh faces who have been inspired by those who have braved the course before them.

Nine’s CEO Hugh Marks said: “With a relocation to Melbourne, Australian Ninja Warrior will return with brand new, breathtaking elements, taking this remarkable show to a new level of awe-inspiring entertainment for Australians of all ages.

“There will be more excitement, more phenomenal challenges, more heroic Ninjas and more high-quality family viewing.”

The move has been made possible with the support of Visit Victoria.

Nine Melbourne managing director Matt Scriven said: “It is with great excitement that we welcome Australian Ninja Warrior to Melbourne. We take great pride in all the shows that are produced here and we can’t wait to have one of the greatest shows on Australian TV right on our doorstep.”
