The eighth season of NBC's "American Ninja Warrior" will launch on Wednesday, May 29 (8-10 p.m.) before moving to its regular timeslot on Monday, June 10 (8-10 p.m.).

Last summer "American Ninja Warrior" delivered a 1.3 rating in adults 18-49 and 5.9 million viewers overall in "live plus seven day" Nielsens, scoring as the most-watched broadcast of the night with each of its final five telecasts of the summer. "Ninja Warrior" generated top-10 rankings among primetime summer shows on the Big 4 networks in numerous key demographics.

Zuri Hall, an award-winning television host and actress, is joining the show this season as sideline reporter. Hall will be on the ground giving viewers an in-depth preview of the course and sharing up-to-the-minute reactions from the crowd. She will also be the first to greet competitors after they have taken on the course with her post-race interviews.

Hall will continue to serve as a correspondent across all E! platforms, including "What the Fashion" on Snapchat Discover and "What's Good with Zuri Hall," on E! News.

"American Ninja Warrior," hosted by Matt Iseman and Akbar Gbajabiamila, begins filming March 6 with the Los Angeles city qualifying rounds, before moving on to shoot in previously announced cities for this season, including Atlanta, Oklahoma City, Baltimore, Seattle/Tacoma, Cincinnati and finally, Las Vegas for the show's national finals.

The series is executive produced by A. Smith & Co. Productions' founders Arthur Smith and Kent Weed. Brian Richardson, Anthony Storm and Kristen Stabile also serve as executive producers.
