‘Making It’ Moves To June As NBC Kicks Off Unscripted Summer Season With Return Of ‘America’s Got Talent’ & ‘American Ninja Warrior’

NBC is cementing its summer line-up of unscripted shows and this year’s schedule looks a bit more normal than last year.

The network is kicking off its summer on May 31 and has moved Amy Poehler and Nick Offerman DIY series Making It back to the sunny season.

Making It, which is hosted by and exec produced by the Parks and Recreation pair, will launch its third season on Thursday June 3 at 8pm.

The show, which sees talented makers from across the country take on a variety of handmade projects to impress Poehler, Offerman, Dayna Isom Johnson and Simon Doonan, kicked off its second season on Tuesday December 2 2019.

The first season of the show, which is produced by Universal Television Alternative Studio in association with Paper Kite Productions and 3 Arts Entertainment, debuted on Monday July 31 2018 and ran through the beginning of September.

Season 12 of the show, which completed production during the pandemic, launched on Monday September 7 2020, later than the majority of its previous seasons, which tended to start in late May or early June.

Hosts Matt Iseman, Akbar Gbajabiamila and Zuri Hall will return and the series is set to take place in Seattle, Los Angeles and Las Vegas.

The new season will feature more than 400 competitors and for the first time will drop its age limit for competitors to 15 years old.

As revealed last week, judges Simon Cowell, Heidi Klum, Howie Mandel and Sofia Vergara and host Terry Crews are back to find a performer to win the $1M prize.

America’s Got Talent was created by Simon Cowell, who exec produces with Sam Donnelly, Jason Raff and Richard Wallace. It is co-produced by Fremantle and Syco Entertainment.
