The show is NOT cancelled, but there is no official status yet on season 3

Fans love watching the daring duo take up the painstaking task of getting bitten by dangerous animals and insects. If you are wondering why someone in their right mind would deliberately subject themselves to the torture. The answer is 'in the name of science'. Adam Thorn and Robert Alleva do this experiment to test the human pain threshold to help save human lives in the future. All of it is actually inspired by how entomologist Justin O. Schmidt created a 1-4 point pain index. The difference is that King of Pain creates a mightier index on a 30-point scale. Talk about daring!! Since it was also contributing to research, everyone speculated it would go on. However, sadly, there will be no Kings of Pain Season 2.
About the show: “Kings of Pain” follows wildlife biologist Adam Thorn and professional animal handler Rob “Caveman” Alleva as they get bitten and stung by some of the most dangerous animals and vicious stinging insects in the world – from a reticulated python to a rove beetle – to create a complete and comprehensive pain index that will ultimately help save lives.
Each episode chronicles Thorn and Alleva as they track the animal in its natural habitat, safely trap it and then execute the bite or sting on each other, followed by their ranking of the pain results. An onsite medic is present who monitors the health and well-being of both men and describes to viewers exactly what physical and physiological effects each bite and/or sting is creating within their bodies.

I loved this show I have no clue why it wouldn’t be picked up again !!!
Such a shame as it was awesome
David Rogers says
There are so many poor shows on TV that get renewed so I cannot understand why this funny and brilliant show wasn’t given a series 2.
Why don’t you make your own show and get bitten and stung by creatures and see if you find it funny and brilliant. Stop being so immature.
I was really looking forward to this Series coming back, it is with great disappointment that they have canceled it😧😦🥺🥺😢
OMG I loved ths show. I thought Adam and Rob had great comerodity. There were times I laughed so hard I was crying. Please please bring this show back. Plus they are doing important work.
I loved king of pains. It’s a shame it was cancelled

That’s terrible news and this decision should be re-evaluated!
Craig Facer says
That’s really disappointing, they need to stop making some of the other rubbish and get series’s 2 going
Chris Marks says
There’s a lot of other subpar shows in my opinion on tv that painfully go on perpetually. This one was actually entertaining and informative. They should reevaluate
Steve G says
Sad to see there will not be another season.
Found the show very interesting and educational.
I don’t understand why so many other stupid and senseless shows get renewed and this one was canceled.
I hope they re-consider
Should be a second season. This show would just gather more and more viewers. I just watched the entire first season in one go. So good and informative. My daughter even liked it. Get it back on. So much other bad tv shows on.
I watched season one three or so times its awesome!!
Just watched season one again. I’m disappointed there’ll not be another season, as it’s enjoyable, entertaining & informative. Come on get a grip give us a second season.
