Here's Where You Can Watch The Challenge: All-Stars Season 2

The origins of MTV reality competition series "The Challenge" date back to "Road Rules: All Stars," a spinoff of influential reality show "Road Rules" that aired in 1998. While "Road Rules: All Stars" differs in many ways from "The Challenge" as it exists today, it's nevertheless considered to be the first season of "The Challenge," and thus the progenitor for the series in its current incarnation.

Most recently, Season 37 of "The Challenge" introduced viewers to a group of contestants comprised of 15 series veterans and 19 newcomers. Though its format — in which American competitors must work alongside their counterparts from elsewhere in the world — is new to this season, it still features experienced reality show stars competing in special challenges, just like "Road Rules: All Stars" decades before it.

Airing concurrently with "The Challenge" Season 37 is a second season of spinoff series "The Challenge: All Stars," the cast of which largely features contestants once on shows like "The Real World" and "Road Rules" in the 90s and 2000s. Its "All Stars" subtitle, then, evokes its predecessor in "Road Rules: All Stars" as well as its competitors' past experience. While new episodes of "The Challenge" premiere on MTV, watching "The Challenge: All Stars" requires a subscription to a particular streaming service.

The Challenge: All-Stars is exclusive to Paramount+

Unlike "The Challenge," episodes of which are available through various streaming services as well as on cable TV, new episodes of "The Challenge: All-Stars" Season 2 premiere exclusively on Paramount+. Subscribing to Paramount's flagship streaming service, then, is the only way to keep up with the latest season of "The Challenge: All-Stars." Likewise, all 10 episodes of its first season are exclusively available on the streaming service in addition to episodes of an after show titled "Aftermath," meaning that a paid subscription provides access to "The Challenge: All-Stars in its entirety.

The cast of "The Challenge: All-Stars" Season 2 is comprised of some Season 1 veterans, stars of multiple "Real World" seasons, competitors from "Real World/Road Rules Challenge: Fresh Meat," and other related series. In total, "The Challenge: All Stars" Season 2 features 24 contestants, all vying for a $500,000 prize (via MTV). New episodes are available on Thursdays.
