They’re baaaaaack! The dangerous minds behind NBC’s Fear Factor have resuscitated the show from its untimely demise. Hooray!

As nobody could possibly replace original host Joe Rogan, he’s back too. Double hooray!

It’s as though the series never left the airwaves. In a sneak preview of the upcoming season, there is a clip in which contestants are challenged to eat a bug — that’s eating a bug!  Another stunt includes jumping from a moving car onto a bus, crashing through a window and head shaving!

“The fans of the original show are not going to be disappointed and Rogan is exactly the same — it’s classic, it looks amazing,” Paul Telegdy, NBC’s president of alternative and late night programming, tells Entertainment Weekly.

The show returns December 12.
