FOX has ordered eight one-hour episodes of Superhuman, the unscripted competition series that tests the extraordinary abilities of ordinary people, who compete for a $100,000 grand prize. The episodes were picked up following a two-hour special, which aired Jan. 4, 2016. Kal Penn will return as host for the new episodes. Originally produced by Endemol Shine Germany as The Brain (currently in its sixth season), the competition series has aired in China (third season), Italy (second season), Brazil (second season), Spain and France (third season), where the premiere delivered top ratings for its network. Following the success in Germany and Spain, the networks launched a kids’ version of the popular format. The U.S. marks the seventh territory where the format will launch.
