MTV’s “Safeword” returns for Season Two with Michael B. Jordan and Steelo Brim

24th August 2018


MTV’s hit show “SafeWord,” hosted and executive produced by Terrence J, will return for its highly anticipated second season on Friday, August 24th at 11PM ET/PT with Michael B. Jordan, Steelo Brim and cameos by Tiffany Haddish and Issa Rae.


On MTV’s “SafeWord,” stakes are high when a pair of close celebrity friends act as “captains” of their respective “teams” and go head-to-head in hilarious games and social media challenges that push them out of their comfort zone. Each captain is joined by comedians Carly Aquilino, Damien Dante Wayans, Jessimae Peluso, Jordan Rock, Klarity and Leonard Ouzts. At the end of every episode, the losing captain must answer three unfiltered questions while hooked up to a lie detector machine, completely at the mercy of their opponent.


Celebrity captains include:


Michael B. Jordan vs. Steelo Brim (f/ Tiffany Haddish and Issa Rae)

DJ Khaled vs. Diddy (f/ Fat Joe)

Tiffany Haddish vs. Jamie Foxx (f/ Erykah Badu and Snoop Dogg)
