When The Masked Singer first premiered on Fox earlier this year, people had a lot of opinions. Haters aside, the outrageous reality show quickly became a massive hit and has already been renewed for its second and third season. Now that the first installment of the new series has wrapped up (shout out to T-Pain AKA the Monster on his win), fans can look forward to a fresh round of over-the-top performances, mysterious clues, and crazy costumes. Here's everything we know so far about season two of The Masked Singer.
Who are the judges?
The panel of celebrity judges tasked with guessing who the contestants are will remain the same. Robin Thicke, Jenny McCarthy, Ken Jeong, and Nicole Scherzinger have all reportedly signed on for season 2, along with host Nick Cannon.
When is the premiere?
The release date for the second season is still TBA. We do know that it will come back in the fall and continue to air on Wednesdays at 8 p.m.
Which celebrities will be contestants?
Obviously this part is a secret. We won't know who's-who on the new season until the clues start to roll in and the singers are unmasked. But if anyone knows the producers of The Masked Singer, we have some suggestions (and costume ideas) for who we'd like to see perform each week:
- Sam Elliott as a giant nose/mustache combo
- Betty White as a hot dog or a bottle of vodka
- Chip Gaines as a hammer
- Adam Levine as a HomeGoods pillow
- Carrie Underwood as a pretty little souped-up four-wheel drive
- Milo Ventimiglia as a Crock-Pot
Will the show stay the same?
Fox’s Alternative Entertainment president Rob Wade told that plans for the second season have not yet been finalized, explaining that producers wanted to see how the final several episodes performed before deciding how to fine-tune the franchise and when to return it to the network's lineup.
On the subject of keeping identities of the contestants secret, executive producer Craig Plestis has said they plan to beef up security next season, according to .
When will season 3 premiere?
Before announcing the season two premiere date, Fox has already confirmed that The Masked Singer will be back for a third season in 2020. According to , it will premiere after Super Bowl LIV on February 2.
