If you’re already on your toes, here’s more information about what you can look forward to with AGT: Extreme:

First off, what is AGT: Extreme?

On May 14, AGT announced the exciting new spinoff on Twitter. “Oh you thought #AGT was extreme enough already?” the show tweeted. “We’re taking the most outrageous and jaw-dropping daredevil acts and having them vie for the ultimate title in AGT: Extreme, coming soon to @NBC! 💥.”

Perhaps AGT: Extreme will also offer a similar reward.

When does AGT: Extreme start?

AGT: Extreme is set to premiere during the midseason of summer 2021. While there is no official premiere date announced yet, our best guess is that AGT: Extreme will begin airing episodes sometime between July and August.
