Can't get enough of The Masked Singer? Well, you're in luck! America's favorite musical guessing show is coming back strong for a fifth season.
The four panelists who are the staple to the series – Nicole Scherzinger, Ken Jeong, Jenny McCarthy, and Robin Thicke – are all expected to return. Host Nick Cannon will also be bringing his positive energy to the stage to help unmask famous singers whose identities remain concealed. In its current season, the series currently has earned an impressive total of 11.5 million multi-platform viewers.
The show has been able to implement extremely rigid safety protocols, making alternative programming efforts to follow COVID-19 guidelines.
Fox Entertainment's president of alternative and specials Rob Wade broke the news on Wednesday afternoon.
"'I'm so happy to announce a new season of The Masked Singer...This show brings joy to so many families across the country, especially during these trying times, and we can't wait to get even more celebrities suited up in crazy costumes for an hour of pure fun every week.'"
This exciting report comes hours before the Season Four semi-finals episode that will feature the final six contenders: The Popcorn, The Sun, The Crocodile, The Seahorse, The Jellyfish, and The Mushroom.
The Masked Singer joined in on the exciting news of the show's latest season renewal, sharing:
"𝘔𝘢𝘴𝘬 and you shall receive. 🙌
Season 5 of #TheMaskedSinger is coming to @foxtv in 2021!"
As the show's current season is nearing its end, the network has announced its newest season to air in 2021. Fox has capitalized on the show's success by launching the sister series I Can See Your Voice hosted by none other than Ken Jeong. This star was also recently tapped to co-host the channel's New Year's Eve holiday telecast with Community co-star Joel McHale. The actors and friends will replace previous emcee Steve Harvey.
Deadline announced the news on Wednesday as well, marking many special occasions for Jeong to celebrate.
