Thrilling physical and intellectual challenges await the competitors of Disney XD’s new reality adventure series Fort Boyard – Ultimate Challenge when a sneak peek airs on Saturday, October 22 at 8:00 p.m. ET.
Hosted by Geno Segers (Pair of Kings) and popular British television presenter Laura Hamilton (Dancing on Ice), the 10-part series challenges teens to use brainpower, bravery and teamwork while competing in challenges to claim the ultimate title.
Based on the international game show phenomenon Fort Boyard, the series is set in a 19th century sea fort off the coast of France. It introduces six teams comprised of teens from the United States and the United Kingdom who work together in a tournament of intellect and agility. One team will ultimately get the key to unlock the historic fort’s hidden treasures and will win the honour of calling themselves the ‘conquerors of Fort Boyard.’
In the premiere episode, airing Saturday, October 22 at 8:00 p.m. ET, team members from the Red Vipers and Yellow Scorpions compete in the first round of challenges to find out which team has what it takes to advance to the next round. Fort Boyard – Ultimate Challenge premieres in its regular timeslot weekends at 7:00 p.m. ET beginning Saturday, November 12.
The series sneak peek follows a six-hour marathon of the martial arts comedy, Kickin’ It, airing from 2:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. ET. Episodes of Fort Boyard – Ultimate Challenge will be available on Disney XD OnDemand beginning November 8.
