Showrunners have finally announced when 'Wild 'N Out' will return.

After a brief hiatus, on July 5, showrunners announced that Wild N' Out will be returning for Season 16 on August 10 at 8 p.m. In the upcoming season, viewers can expect to see performances and guest appearances from celebrities like Latto, Rick Ross, Coi Leray, Trina, and Freddie Gibbs.

Let’s take a trip down memory lane. See, when Wild 'N Out was first canceled due to Nick Cannon’s anti-Semitic comments, the cancellation took place during Season 15. And naturally, it halted production for Season 16.

As such, the episodes that aired from April 6, 2021, to May 4, 2021, are simply the remaining episodes from Season 15 that were not released. So, if viewers believed they were watching a brand-new season, they are sadly mistaken. Luckily, Season 16 is coming sooner than later.

Although production was halted on many shows due to the COVID-19 pandemic and Nick Cannon's temporary suspension, the show will return this fall with Nick as the host. Until then, there are plenty of episodes available online that fans can stream in the meantime.
