'Floor is Lava': Release date, plot, cast, trailer and all you need to know about the Netflix game show

Netflix is bringing a very exciting reality game show for its viewers later this month and it is safe to say that you will indulge in a fair bit of nostalgia with each episode. 'Floor is Lava' is exactly what you think it is — navigating a room of lava — a game that many played as children with fond memories of one or two broken pieces of furniture or bones. 

Now it only remains to be seen if watching people play Floor is Lava is as fun (or more) than actually playing it. Here is everything you need to know about the upcoming game show on Netflix.


Release date

Season 1 of 'Floor is Lava' releases on June 19, 2020. 


The rules for the game are as simple as it gets. According to the official synopsis, "Teams compete to navigate rooms flooded with lava by leaping from chairs, hanging from curtains and swinging from chandeliers. Yes, really..."

Not much is known about the show but the fact that three teams will be playing against each other to navigate the floor as if it were lava. At the end of it, the winning team has $10,000 waiting for them. The idea is to simply not fall into the lava else you lose. 

"The obstacle course is colossal, the leaps are epic and you really wanna stick your landing because the floor is lava!" Wood says in the trailer. Remember, absolutely do not try these dangerous activities at home unless you have expert supervision.
