League of Legends is going primetime with a new reality show.

Riot Games Korea has announced a new reality show called “LOL THE NEXT.” It will reportedly have 100 League of Legends players, all ranked Diamond 1 and above, competing in a series of challenges. 

The 10 players who dominate the unspecified challenges will then be split into two five-player squads. Each team will be coached by legends of the game in Korea. These pro players will include Heo “PawN” Won-seok, Lee “Wolf” Jae-wan, KT Rolster’s Kim “PraY” Jong-in, and Jang “MaRin” Gyeong-hwan.

All four of these League of Legends veterans have played both together and against each other while competing at the game’s highest levels in both the LCK and at international tournaments, including the Mid-Season Invitational and World Championship. PawN won a World Championship title in 2014 with Samsung Blue. Wolf is a three-time World Champion who played support for SK Telecom T1. PraY is a three-time LCK champion and his former team, KOO Tigers, once placed second at Worlds behind SKT. MaRin won LCK twice and also claimed victory at Worlds with SKT T1. 

The two teams will train under their veteran guides and will then compete in matches at LCK’s LoL Park, located in Seoul. The winning team will receive 50 million Korean won ($41,000 USD), as well as a “special opportunity” that hasn’t been revealed just yet. Fans are speculating that this opportunity could involve practice time or try-outs with top pro teams in Korea.

The first-ever League of Legends reality show will be streamed on the LCK’s YouTube and Twitch channels. The debut episode will air August 2.
