Everything we did (and did not) see on the Mud Madness season one finale

Mud Madness season one has come to an end, but there is a good chance that the show will be renewed very soon.

The first season of Mud Madness featured all of the souped-up ATVs, high-flying mud and high-octane mud that you can dream of.

But sadly, this six-week battle for the top spot on the fall mud racing circuit has now come to an end.

And although we have seen the checkered flag waving in the distance for a few weeks now, this first season undoubtedly went out with a bang (and a crash and probably a few slurps of mud).

The Mud Madness season one episodes

Before we dive into all the details for the Mud Madness season one finale episode, it is important that we examine just how far the show has come over the course of the last six weeks.

Mud Madness season one, in its entirety, can be summarized as follows:

Episode Title Premiere date
Episode 1 “One Nation Under Mud” April 9, 2024
Episode 2 “Ridin’ Dirty at Rednecks” April 16, 2024
Episode 3 “Smash and Drag” April 23, 2024
Episode 4 “All’s Fair in Mud and War” April 30, 2024
Episode 5 “Blood Is Thicker Than Mud” May 7, 2024
Episode 6 “Shut Up and Send It” May 14, 2024

Who really won this season?

Spoiler alert – maybe skip this section if you do not want to know where each of the featured Mud Madness racers end up at the end of the first season.

But if you do want a quick recap, Josh walked away as the winner of the season and part-owner of an off-road park.

However, if you have been watching along all season long, you will know that the all-important top spot on the leader board is not the only goal that this season’s featured racers had in mind.

And at the end of the day, all of the racers got something valuable out of this season.

While Randi Alicia did not make it to the top spot, she did conquer her fear of competing again after her accident. While Larry “Dredbone” Oakes had to take out a loan to finance a buggy for his girls, he did get some exposure for his music.

AJ Robertson may have lost to Josh Carmon, but he got his name cleared, and he secured a sponsor. Megan Rion even managed to set quite a few records during this season. And Bryce Sparks grew his social media following on his various platforms.

Will Mud Madness be renewed for a second season?

As it stands, Discovery and Original Productions have not yet confirmed whether they intend to bring Mud Madness back for a second season.

However, since the season one finale episode brought in about 322,000 viewers on May 14, 2024 (with a rating of 0.07 in the 18 to 49 demographic), there is a good chance that the show will eventually be brought back for another season, at some point in the future.

Many of the Mud Madness stars also seem hopeful that it will be renewed. Randi and AJ both recently thanked the Mud Madness fans on Facebook for their support, whilst Megan and Josh both confirmed that they are hoping to hear about a renewal very soon.

Bryce even made a TikTok “reviewing” season one, and he shared that it was an amazing experience to be part of.

What we hope to see in Mud Madness season two

As we wait on the official announcement about what lies ahead for Mud Madness if and when the show does return, it may be time to bring up a few things that we would like to see more of in the future (and a few things which are better left in season one).

To start off with, we hope that season two focuses less on the individual rivalry amongst racers.

While it was mildly entertaining to watch Bryce and Josh smack-talk each other in the first few episodes of the show – this continuous back-and-forth got old pretty quickly.

Furthermore, we would hope that season two sees more of the racers settle their scores on the track instead of during the interviews.

But, with that being said the one thing that we would like to see a whole lot more of in the second season of Mud Madness is much, much more racing.

Somehow, six courses are just not enough to satisfy our newly-found love for mud racing and we hope that Mud Madness season two includes a few more racers, a few new challenges, and even a few extra episodes, just for good measure.
