Blake Shelton and Carson Daly's Barmageddon Is Getting a Season 2
Prepare yourself for a great time.
Executive produced by Daly and Shelton and hosted by AGT: Extreme Judge Nikki Bella, this unique show turns a night on the town into a competition show like you’ve never seen before. And in March 2023, Shelton confirmed the show is getting a Season 2.
“By the way, we’re doing a Season 2, we’re super excited,” Shelton revealed on Jimmy Kimmel Live! “It’s an art show, OK? You know what I’m saying? We have fun with it. It was actually just an idea that was born out of drinking backstage at The Voice. We were actually watching, there’s a show called Holy Moley, and we were watching that one day and I said, ‘Man, how much more fun would that show be if they were drinking while they were doing it?’ Literally, that’s how we thought of Barmageddon.”
Get excited! If you haven't watched Barmageddon, here's what you need to know to get in on the fun.
What is Barmageddon?
Chock-full of plot twists, hilarious moments, and live-music sing-alongs, Barmageddon is a celebrity competition show like no other, set in one of the most famous party cities in the world. According to the show's official press release: "In each episode, two celebrities will play a unique set of five games in the bar to win a much-needed prize for a viral Internet sensation each has chosen to support. Plucked from obscurity following their epic misadventures on the Internet, these now-infamous stars find themselves at Ole Red hoping to be redeemed. The competition heats up when the losing rival of each round has a chance to even the score by spinning the Wheel of Redemption, a risky move with hilarious consequences. Shelton and Daly will offer words of encouragement–and heckling, of course–to their celebrity friends. On occasion, they might even step in to show off their skills and play a game or two. Ultimately, the winning team takes home a prize while the losing celebrity must accept the shame of defeat. But this is Barmageddon–even if they did not win, at least they had a ton of fun trying."
“Nashville is known for great music and hospitality, which makes it the perfect setting,” said Shelton. “I’m excited about Barmageddon and can’t wait for friends, old and new, to join my buddy Carson and me for some drinks, music, and high-spirited fun at Ole Red.”
