Rush Through All of These ‘Rush’ Details, Before It’s Too Late

No, Rush isn’t a series that details children procrastinating their homework, melting down, and then speedrunning their times tables. It is instead a globe-trotting, reality TV adventure competition that takes its contestants around the planet.

In Rush, three teams are dropped into the heart of Earth’s most enthralling cultural festivals and interesting locations. The twist? Our contestants will have no idea where they are, but the race will be on to make it to the Escape Zone. The last team to make it to the Escape Zone will need to eliminate one of their members.

At the end of Rush, there will be only one victor. This person will win a life-changing prize of $100,000.

But when is Rush’s start date? How can I binge this series? Here are the 2023 Rush details you need to know.
