The Challenge: All-Stars Season 3 Release Date, Cast, And Location - What We Know So Far

MTV's "The Challenge" has entertained the masses for the better part of two decades now. The concept is simple: Take a bunch of people, in many instances individuals who have appeared on other reality series, and make them go head-to-head in a litany of competitions to see who can come out on top. The show has amassed over 30 seasons, each one with a slightly different theme going for it. From "Battles of the Sexes" to "The Duel," "The Challenge" has undergone numerous incarnations, but few have been as successful as "All-Stars." 

This is a spinoff series that brings together cast members from prior seasons. A lot of money's on the line, and the contestants will have to compete in an array of challenge games, arena games, and various twists thrown in for good measure. After the first two seasons debuted in 2021, it looks like Paramount+ is ready for more. "The Challenge: All-Stars" Season 3 is on the way, and here's what we know about the upcoming season so far.

What's the release date for The Challenge: All-Stars Season 3?

A release date has not been announced yet for "The Challenge: All-Stars" Season 3. According to Bustle, filming for the next season began in the fall of 2021, so the assumption is that it will finally air on Paramount+ sooner rather than later. After all, there was a quick turnaround time between Seasons 1 and 2. Season 1 aired in April 2021, and Season 2 quickly followed in November of that same year. That's only seven months between seasons, so if Season 3 follows that trajectory, we would anticipate it dropping on Paramount+ at some time around June 2022.

That's all susceptible to change at this point, so keep checking back for more details as they become available.

Who's in the cast for The Challenge: All-Stars Season 3?

As has always been the case with "The Challenge: All-Stars," the next season will bring together plenty of familiar faces to see who can emerge victorious among a cast of veterans. Neither MTV nor Paramount has commented on who precisely will crop up on the new season, but some leaks published by Bustle suggest it could be a pretty stacked batch of episodes. In terms of the male contestants, the most notable addition would be Yes Duffy, who won the first season of "All-Stars." Other potential castmates include Mark Long, Laterrian Wallace, Wes Bergmann, Tyler Duckworth, Syryus Yarbrough, Nehemiah Clark, MJ Garrett (Season 2 winner), Jordan Wiseley, Derrick Kosinski, Darrell Taylor, and Brad Fiorenza. 

On the female side of things, the rumored contestants include co-Season 2 winner Jonna Mannion as well as Tina Barta, Cynthia Roberts, Beth Stolarczyk, Veronica Portillo, Sylvia Elsrode, Roni Martin, Nia Moore, Melinda Stolp, Kendal Sheppard, Kellyanne Judd, Kailah Casillas, and Jemmye Carroll. It remains to be seen if these rumors pan out, so stay tuned for a trailer for confirmation on all of this.

What location will The Challenge: All-Stars Season 3 take place in?

There appears to be some decent confirmation of where "The Challenge: All-Stars" Season 3 will take place. Mark Long, who's rumored to be a contestant on the series, uploaded a video on Instagram teasing the next season of the reality series. The first word we see in the clip is "Panama," so it would seem that after the first two seasons took players to Argentina and Mexico, respectively, Season 3 will transpire in Panama. Later in the video, Long looks at the camera and says, "Oh, you thought that was good? Wait till you see what I have in store for them next." It practically functions as a trailer minus information on a release date. 

What's even more interesting is that a few "The Challenge" alumni commented on the post, including Brad Fiorenza. Unfortunately, the teaser doesn't offer any glimpses at what games we can expect, but all good things come in time.
