Go Fighting! 极限挑战 has announced its cast lineup for season 5 which include series regulars Huang Lei, Show Lo, Lay Zhang Yixing and Wang Xun and new members Dilraba Dilmurat, Yue Yunpeng and Lei Jiayin. Veteran actors Huang Bo and Sun Honglei will not be returning due to other work arrangements.
Ever since it first premiered on Dragon TV in 2015, the reality show has gone on to become a household name. If Keep Running were about family, Go Fighting! was about brotherhood. Even when season 4 was airing, it was difficult to get all boys together at once so this outcome although unfortunate is not as surprising.

There must be something in the water for Keep Running and Go Fighting to both undergo major changes in the same year, so it looks like viewers will have a lot of adjusting to do. Furthermore, director Yan Ming who once said that he doesn’t see the point of doing the show if not all six guys are present is also leaving. He passes the reigns to director Shi Jianing. If it’s any consolation, both Huang Bo and Sun Honglei have named Lei Jiayin and Dilraba as their replacements and promise to check on them.
