When Is Gladiators on?

After months of adrenaline-fuelled anticipation, it’s finally arrived. On January 15, the first episode of the Gladiators reboot dropped, and fans are loving it.

“Loving the new Gladiators,” wrote one fan on Instagram. “Watching it with my 12-year-old daughter, who’s having just as much fun as when I was a teenager.”

Likewise, another fan declared, “Taking me back to being a kid.”

If you’re not in the know, Gladiators was an iconic reality TV series that originally ran from 1995 until 1996. In each episode, a bunch of Aussies competed in a gauntlet of physical challenges. It featured wrestling matches, obstacle course races, and races to the top of a pyramid. 

In 2024, the reboot has successfully recaptured the magic of these challenges. What’s more, they were able to pull off this daunting task in a single episode. 

According to Liz Ellis, the co-host of the Gladiators reboot, the production team worked incredibly hard to pull off this feat. However, this wasn’t the only detail they wanted to nail. In a phone call with The Latch, Liz said it was also important to make sure each competitor lived up to the original’s hype. 

“I watched Gladiators when I was about 20,” Liz said. “And remember it being massive. Everyone watched it and talked about it. People just couldn’t believe the fact that these Gladiators, who were larger than life, were also so lippy and so fun.

“So when we were talking about rebooting Gladiators, that really stuck in my mind. I wanted to make sure that these Gladiators were larger than life, that they really embodied the whole idea of being superhuman.”

Due to the success of Gladiators’ first episode, we can’t wait to watch what happens next. If you’re in the same boat, here’s when each episode airs.
