PHILIPPINES (May 8, 2017) – Once again, heart-pounding thrills and excitement come your way when American Ninja Warrior, one of the most watched sports competition series, returns to AXN this May.
The seventh season airs Mondays to Thursdays at 8:50 pm
In the upcoming season, a new batch of America’s finest athletes tries to prove their mettle when it comes to strength, stamina, and endurance as they take on the world’s most challenging obstacle courses in the qualifying rounds in Venice, Kansas City, Houston, Orlando, and Pittsburgh. Also, the new season pays tribute to the military with an all-military personnel qualifying round.
As in previous seasons, the top competitors advance to the national finals in Las Vegas, where the grueling Mt. Midoriyama will be the final course of the competition.

In addition, this season’s grand prize was increased from $500,000 to $1,000,000.
