NBC is bringing back the classic competition series American Gladiators and will be auditioning both contenders and gladiators for the upcoming season beginning Saturday, Sept. 8 in Los Angeles before moving onto four additional cities around the U.S including New York, Chicago, Miami and Dallas.

The show's contenders are "weekend warriors" who have excelled and take pride in their level of fitness and want to test their physical ability in the Gladiator Arena. The "gladiators" are a charismatic and eclectic group of warriors who are ready to take down our everyday challengers with hard knocks and explosive attitudes.

As in the traditional American Gladiators franchise, the everyday athletes compete against the professionals in physically challenging contests. Classic events such as the joust, The Wall, Hang Tough and the Eliminator will be played in front of an arena filled with thousands of rabid spectators.
