The TV show 1000 Ways to Die airs on the cable channel Spike. New episodes air on Monday nights at 10/9C, beginning on March 12, 2012, with the Season 4 premiere.


Season 2

Season 2 was set to premiere on December 9, 2009 at 10 PM (EST), but a special airing of the season premiere episode was shown on December 6, 2009 at 12:30 AM (EST). The pattern in which the segments were shown remained the same, but the real-life scenarios of people escaping death shown at the ending were dropped to make room for more death segments. The deaths are slightly more graphic in this season, and "Idiot Alerts" (in the same font as the "Way to Die #" and nicknames descriptions are) were added to deaths from moronic and ill-advised stunts that could easily be imitated in real life. Another change is that under "Location", only the city is told, not the city and the specific location as it was in Season 1. Also, the female models that were featured in the opening and coming up bumpers were removed as well. The wording of the opening disclaimer was changed slightly from Season 1:

"WARNING: The stories portrayed in this show are based on real deaths and are extremely graphic."
"Names have been changed to protect the identities of the deceased."

"Do not attempt to try ANY of the actions depicted."
"YOU WILL DIE!" (this time, the emphasis is on the word "WILL").
