Viacom-owned Paramount Network is expanding its Ink Master franchise with the new spin-0ff series Ink Master: Grudge Match.

The 12 x 60 minute series will give former show contestants the chance to settle grievances with their biggest rivals against whom they previously competed.

Produced by Truly Original, a subsidiary of Endemol Shine North America, Ink Master: Grudge Match will feature previous Ink Master champions Ryan Ashely, DJ Tambe and Cleen Rock as judges.

Glenda Hersh, Steven Weinstock and Andrea Richter serve as executive producers on the series. Chaz Gray oversees production of Ink Master and Ink Master: Grudge Match for Paramount.

Ink Master: Grudge Match is slated to premiere this fall.

In additional Ink Masters news, Paramount has launched a stand-alone Ink Master channel on YouTube, which will be the home for all series video content.

The tattoo competition reality series has also been renewed for two further seasons. Season 12 of Ink Master, titled Ink Master: Battle Of The Sexes (Truly Original; 16 x 60 minutes), will feature teams of male and female artists battling it out to have the chance to win US$100,000, an editorial feature in Inked and the Ink Master title.

Meanwhile, season 13 (also 16 x 60 minutes) is slated to premiere in 2020.

Season 12 of Ink Master premieres June 11 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on the Paramount Network.
