LOS ANGELES, Aug. 29 (UPI) -- ABC says it has ordered a sixth season of its U.S. reality competition series "Wipeout," with Jill Wagner to return as co-host.

The next run of fresh installments of the game show will include its 100-episode milestone, set to air in 2012-13.

"Twenty-four adventurous players of all shapes and sizes will compete in the world's largest extreme obstacle course designed to showcase the best body flips, biggest splashes and amazing wipeouts that the entire family can enjoy," ABC said in a news release Wednesday.

Also serving as co-hosts will be John Anderson and John Henson.

"I'm thrilled that we will hit a major milestone in our sixth season, our 100th episode. We'll be celebrating all season long with brand new over-the-top courses and the return of Jill Wagner to the 'Wipeout' family," Matt Kunitz, creator and executive producer, said in a statement

Wagner was co-host of the show from 2008-11. She left to focus on her acting career and was replaced by Vanessa Lachey. Lachey left the show to have her first child with her husband, Nick.
