American Ninja Warrior 11 is the eleventh season of American Ninja Warrior, and the fourth season after Geoff Britten and Isaac Caldiero's total victories on American Ninja Warrior 7. The season was premiered on May 29th, 2019, and hosted six cities for qualifying rounds in Los Angeles, Atlanta, Oklahoma City, Baltimore, Seattle-Tacoma (new city), and Cincinnati (new city), with the national finals being held in Las Vegas. Among the 6 qualifying cities for this season, Atlanta and Oklahoma City returned for the first time since American Ninja Warrior 8, while Baltimore returned for the first time since American Ninja Warrior 5. For this season, Matt Iseman returned as the host for his tenth season, Akbar Gbaja-Biamila returned as the co-host for his seventh season, while Zuri Hall replaced Kristine Leahy as the sideline reporter. Episodes were aired at NBC on Wednesday night, but changed to Monday night (starting on June 17th, 2019).

This season featured several changes for the competition:

  • During city qualifiers round in each city:
    • The top 2 overall competitors would compete head-to-head on a side-by-side obstacle called the Power Tower. The winning competitor on this obstacle would receive the Speed Pass, meaning he/she would automatically advance to Las Vegas national finals.
  • During city finals round in each city:
    • The competitor who already earned the Speed Pass during city qualifiers round might choose not to compete in the city finals round (since his/her spot in Las Vegas national finals had already been guaranteed).
    • Only the top 12 competitors who made the furthest in the fastest time (in case of less than 12 competitors completed the course) instead of 15 competitors would advance to Las Vegas national finals.
      • However, if one of the competitors in the top 12 was the one who had already received the Speed Pass, the competitor who finished in 13th place would automatically fill the last spot for Las Vegas national finals.
    • The top 2 overall competitors would compete head-to-head on the redesigned Power Tower. This time, the winning competitor on this obstacle would receive the Safety Pass, meaning if he/she failed to complete either Stage One or Stage Two during Las Vegas national finals, he/she was allowed to reattempt it once. However, if he/she could complete both stages, his/her Safety Pass would be voided (it could not be rolled over to the next season).

Trivia

  • Atlanta qualifiers on this season was served to promote the then-upcoming The Secret Life of Pets 2, which would be released in the U.S. on June 7th, 2019. Therefore, there was a special Warped Wall for dogs (called as the Doggie Warped Wall) placed beside the course.
  • Also, after Roo Yori's run, the makers of the movie gave a $20,000 donation for him on behalf of his foundation, the Wallace the Pitbull Foundation.
