Nick Cannon's 'Wild 'N Out' To Return To TV

on November 12 2012 9:06 PM

It looks like Nick Cannon's improv-based "Wild 'N Out" is returning to TV, as the musician tweeted out Monday that MTV2 is reviving the show with a whole new crop of cast members.

Nick Cannon -- perhaps best known as the other, much-younger half of singer Mariah Carey, with whom he has twins -- originally rose to fame as the host of the hit improv comedy during its initial run.

The first "Wild 'N Out" ran from 2005 to 2007 and featured cast members who went on to have their own solo careers, from Katt Williams and Affion Crockett to Taran Killam and Kevin Hart. It also featured top guests like Tyra Banks, Kanye West, Lil' Wayne, Snoop Dogg and Serena Williams, who went on the show to "rap battle" one another and engage in other fun improv bits.

"Wild 'n Out is OFFICIALLY coming BACK!!! http://bit.ly/XyslxN  ," Nick Cannon tweeted on Monday, setting off buzz about the return of the popular television program.

But before the show hits the small screen again next year, it needs a full cast, so auditions will be held, according to an announcement on Nick Cannon's official website:

"We are looking to cast FRESH talent! Make sure you check out NCredible.com for the latest audition information!!!" the announcement states.

Everybody lock up your mothers, because there's about to be a lot more dissing on MTV2 with the return of Nick Cannon's "Wild 'N Out."

Nick Cannon said he is stoked about the new run of the show that put him on the map:

""I get asked everyday when 'Wild 'N Out' will be back," Cannon said, according to the Hollywood Reporter. "I'm thrilled to announce that the show will be making its long-awaited return very soon -- bigger and better."

And MTV2 is also excited about Cannon's return:

"Building on our long-standing relationship with Nick Cannon, we are ecstatic to welcome his creative genius back to the MTV family," MTV2's senior vp for programming and production, Paul Ricci, told the Hollwood Reporter. "The remixed 'Wild 'N Out' will deliver a high-energy, clever and hilarious addition to MTV2's original programming lineup."
