MTV's "The Challenge" has suffered two major losses in the past month. The deaths of veteran cast members Diem Brown and Ryan Knight shocked former participants, and fans speculated how MTV would proceed with the next season of the show, which was rumored to debut in the next few months. Entertainment Weekly now reports that the "The Challenge: Battle of the Exes 2" will premiere Jan. 6, 2015, at 11 p.m. ET. The season will be dedicated to Brown and Knight.
According to EW, both were set to appear in the season -- Brown paired with her longtime on-and-off boyfriend, CT Tamburello, and Knight with his ex and "Real World: New Orleans" castmate, Jemmye Carroll -- and can be seen in the cast photo.
