I Survived a Japanese Game Show's second season will now debut Wednesday, June 17 at 9PM ET/PT.  The network had originally announced the show would premiere on July 8.

I Survived a Japanese Game Show's second season will feature a format similar to last summer's first season and follow a group of American contestants as they travel to Japan and compete in a series of challenges traditionally seen on Japanese game shows. 

One contestant will be eliminated in each episode, with the final winner claiming the competition's $250,000 grand prize.

Mama-San, the contestants' house mother; Rome Kanda, the host of the fictional game show the contestants compete on; and Judge Bob, the games' referee; will all reprise their roles for I Survived a Japanese Game Show's second season. 

I Survived a Japanese Game Show is executive produced by Arthur Smith and Kent Weed for A. Smith & Co. and David Sidebotham, Karsten Bartholin and Tim Crescenti for Babyfoot APS Denmark.
