Discovery has had quite a long tradition for catering to automobile enthusiasts all over the world, bringing in new shows on cars every odd year, be it shows on car restoration, sneak peeks into cutting-edge next-gen technologies of the automobile industry, or getting in the game directly, with up close and personal independently organized races. These shows add a fresh mix to the broad genre of reality television, and entertain both car lovers and adrenaline junkies.
A stellar example of this is Discovery’s very own ‘Street Outlaws‘, which has had a spectacular 13-season run from 2013 and looks primed for more seasons. Unsurprisingly, the success of ‘Street Outlaws’ saw several spin-off shows being made, and ‘Street Outlaws: No Prep Kings’ is the latest addition to the hugely successful franchise. A relatively new show, Season 1 of ‘Street Outlaws: No Prep Kings’ premiered on Discovery Channel in February 2018, and became an instant hit among fans of the franchise. Discovery, of course, wasted no time in renewing the show, which returned with Season 2 on January 14, 2019. With Season 2 having come to an end, fans of the show are already wondering whether ‘Street Outlaws: No Prep Kings’ will return for a third season. Here’s everything we know about it thus far.
Street Outlaws: No Prep Kings Cast: Who is in it?
Being a reality show on street racing, ‘Street Outlaws: No Prep Kings’ features several famous street racers, along with their crews, although most of the focus is on the drivers.
Dozens of drivers have appeared in the show over the two seasons, and some of them are Chuck, Birdman, Ryan Martin, Jeff Lutz, Kye Kelley, Reaper, Monza, Daddy Dave, Farmtruck, AZN, Dominator, Shawn Wilhoit, Scott Taylor, Boostedgt, Doc, Bobby Ducote, Barry Nicholson, Jerry Bird, Ryan Taggart, Kamikaze Chris, David “Bird” Jones, Shannon Poole, Matt Frost, Mike Murillo, Brent Austin, Boddie, and Chris Poncia.
If the show does return for a third season, we can expect some of the drivers to return, and there’s also a strong possibility of new entrants being featured. We’re keeping an eye out for news on the possible cast of Season 3, and we’ll update this section as soon as we hear more.
Street Outlaws: No Prep Kings Plot: What is it about?
‘Street Outlaws: No Prep Kings’ is identical in its formula to the main show for the most part, except for the fact that the drivers in the show drive on racing tracks that have not been primed with traction compounds, which makes races more difficult and wild. The show takes viewers to racing circuits across the US, and pits some of the biggest names in no-prep road racing against each other. While all the contestants start every season, they are gradually eliminated till only two racers remain for the final track battle. The show has a grand total prize pool of $320,000, which goes up for grabs for the winners.
Building on the success of the introductory season of ‘Street Outlaws: No Prep Kings’, Season 2 of the show got off to an explosive start and came to an end at Ennis, Texas, where packed stands of onlookers watched the final race. A new controversial rule was introduced in Season 2 which saw the drama and adrenaline-filled show take a lot of unexpected twists and turns. Veteran racer and 14-time world champion Mike Murillo and his team Eat Race Die, took the second season by storm, and in the high-octane finale at Ennis, emerged as the deserving winner of the season, convincingly beating his competition.
With Season 2 of ‘Street Outlaws: No Prep Kings’ having concluded on an explosive note, everyone’s now hoping to see another season of high-octane, wild racing action. Who knows what Discovery has in store for fans of the show.
Street Outlaws: No Prep Kings Season 3 Release Date: When will it premiere?
Season 2 of ‘Street Outlaws: No Prep Kings’ that premiered on January 14, 2019 aired till March 13, 2019. There hasn’t been any announcement from Discovery pertaining to the renewal of the show. However, considering the fact that the original ‘Street Outlaws’ show itself is doing well, and the fact that ‘Street Outlaws: No Prep Kings’ adds to the value of the franchise, we don’t see any reason for Discovery to cancel the show. Further, ‘Street Outlaws: No Prep Kings’ has also managed to create its own fan base, and we expect Discovery to order at least another season.
Our best guess is that if the show does get renewed, ‘Street Outlaws: No Prep Kings’ can release sometime in January 2020. We will update this section as soon as we hear more.
Street Outlaws: No Prep Kings Trailer:
While we wait for Discovery to make an announcement on the future of ‘Street Outlaws: No Prep Kings’, here is a clip from the second season to give you a glimpse into the high-octane racing action the show is so famous for.
