Are you ready for what MTV is calling "the most dangerous Challenge ever"?

The upcoming 35th season of the reality competition series is Total Madness — and based on the promo (below) and key art, that's an apt description. It kicks off on Wednesday, April 1 at 8/7c.

'The Challenge: War of the Worlds 2': Which Team Won? (RECAP)

The U.K. and U.S. teams tackled Stage 2 of the Season 34 final.

War of the Worlds 2 scored the highest franchise premiere in six years, but the new season, which will feature 90-minute episodes, returns to a solo game format. The 28 players — veterans (categorized this season as anyone who has done a Challenge before) and rookies from reality shows including SurvivorBig Brother, and So You Think You Can Dance — will face strenuous challenges in pursuit of taking home $1 million. And as always, expect some twists, including, according to host TJ Lavin, the "biggest" one yet, along the way.
