As noted, FOX recently renewed American Grit, which is hosted and executive produced by John Cena, for a second season.
There was speculation that John Cena
would be taking a hiatus from WWE
soon to start filming the second season given the finish of his match to AJ Styles
at WWE SummerSlam
last week. Cena lost his match to AJ Styles clean, and left one of his "Never Give Up" bands on the mat before leaving the ring. He has yet to appear on WWE television since the loss, although he wrestled dark matches at RAW and SmackDown last week.
Despite that finish, we have learned that Cena will not be taking a hiatus from WWE until mid-October, which is when the first season began filming last year. Cena is expected to be out of action for most - if not all - of the remainder of the year to film the show.
