MTV Renews ‘Are You the One’ and ‘The Challenge'; Greenlights Two Pilots to Series

The network gives 10-episode orders to half-hour shows ”Girl Code Live“ and ”Greatest Party Story Ever“

MTV renewed two unscripted series and greenlit two more on Friday.

The network will bring back dating series “Are You the One” for Season 3 and reality game show “The Challenge” for Season 27. It has also greenlit “Girl Code Live,” a weekly late-night talker, and “Greatest Party Story Ever,” a half-hour weekly centered around outrageous tales.

MTV’s “The Challenge,” originally titled “Road Rules: All Stars” and later “Real World/Road Rules Challenge,” is a competitive spinoff of two of the network’s iconic reality series, “Real World” and “Road Rules.” The series places former contestants from those shows in exotic locations and pits them head-to-head in physically and emotionally exhausting challenges, with winners receiving cash and prizes.

“The Challenge,” created by Bunim/Murray Productions with executive producers Jonathan Murray, Gil Goldschein, Scott Freeman and Justin Booth, has been renewed for 12 one-hour episodes.

“Are You the One?” focuses on 10 single women and 10 single guys who are put through an extensive matchmaking process. The 20 are then asked to spend a month together, during which they get to know one another and attempt to figure out which other contestant is their match. Winners get to split a $1 million cash prize.

The series, from executive producers Howard Schultz, Rob LaPlante and Jeff Spangler, has been given 10 one-hour episodes.

“Girl Code Live” is a weekly half-hour late-night talk show hosted by three ladies from “Girl Code,” Nessa, Carly and Awkwafina. The series will feature celebrity guests, musical artists, games and candid girl-talk in front of a live studio audience.

The series, from executive producer Ryan Ling and directed by Sarah De la O, has been given a 10-episode order.

“Greatest Party Story Ever” showcases epic tales ranging from debauchery and friendship to even celebrity encounters, all with a comedic tone. The stories will be brought to life through first-person storytelling and animation.

From Four Peaks Media Group and executive producers Ben Nemtin and Jonnie Penn, the series has been given a 10-episode order.
