Is a New Episode of American Ninja Warrior on Tonight? July 3, 2023

Sadly, fans will need to press pause on the ANW action this week.  

By Jessica White

Season 15 of American Ninja Warrior has been exhilarating, to say the least. 

How to Watch

Watch the Season 16 premiere of American Ninja Warrior Monday, June 3 at 8/7c on NBC and next day on Peacock.

This isn't Hosts Matt Iseman and Akbar Gbajabiamila or sideline reporter Zuri Hall's first rodeo, yet they've seemed genuinely thrilled each time an athlete steps up to bat this season and knocks a course out of the park. Season 15 boasts one of the most exciting Ninja lineups yet, with a delightful mix of veterans and fresh-faced newbies dead set on becoming the Last Ninja Standing. Which Season 15 Ninja will ascend Mt. Midoriyama to attempt to claim the title of Champion and the life-changing $1 million? Only time will tell.

Sadly, there is no new episode of ANW on July 3. Find out when and how to watch new episodes of the show, below.

Unfortunately, no. American Ninja Warrior will not air a new episode on July 3. But have no fear: ANW will return soon, and you won't want to miss a single minute of the action.

“We keep making the course harder, and [the Ninjas] keep getting better. They keep training, and it’s like the never-ending quest for us to push the limit,” ANW producer Arthur Smith told Deadline. “They started with building courses in the backyard, that was reasonably early in the run. Now there’s Ninja gyms everywhere and then to Coaches and then to trainers. Now we have kids, who say, ‘I’m not going to play soccer. I’m doing Ninja.'”

Ahead of the sixth round of Qualifiers, 80 gravity-defying Ninjas have shown they have what it takes to race to the Season 15 Semi-Finals. Kaden Lebsack is among these Season 15 competitors and holds the honor of winning ANW Seasons 13 and Season 14 consecutively.

Following his history-making ANW victory, Lebsack wrote on IG, "I am extremely grateful and proud to get Last Ninja Standing back to back it was definitely bittersweet timing out on Stage 4 again. I honestly thought it would be a while before I’d get a chance to have redemption with stage 4 and getting back there back to back is still mind-blowing to me."

"That being said this season was awesome and an absolute ton of fun," Lebsack continued. "...Thanks to everyone who reached out! Also big thanks to the @ninjawarrior crew for setting up such fun courses! And huge thanks to @_mr_intensity_ and everyone at @ninjaintensity and @bucketofchalk for always pushing me. Can’t wait to come back next year and see everyone crush it🙌."
