"We are very grateful "Physical: 100" received so much love from fans all across the globe, and we paid attention to all the comments and feedback. We decided to retain the essence of the show – finding the perfect physique – while introducing fresh elements. This is our way of expressing our gratitude to the fans of the show," said director Jang Ho-gi.
Debuting at the beginning of this year, the Korean survival game series put 100 extremely fit contestants, including Olympians, professional fighters, bodybuilders, and former soldiers, through a series of quests to challenge their strength, endurance, agility, balance and willpower.
In Season 2, a fresh batch of hundred contestants will battle it out, irrespective of age, sex, nationality, or weight class, to be the last one standing.
Jang also revealed that the second season will surpass its predecessor in every aspect. The set in the first season, which was the size of two football fields, will now be expanded to create an even larger universe to challenge the participants.
"I'm honored to meet a lot of contestants whom I feel are overqualified. And I'm also collaborating with many experts to make sure we have even more electrifying and well-designed quests that will leave audiences on the edge of their seats. I give you my word that we will be back with an all-new season that's got everything taken up a notch for our global fans," he said.
