FOX is bringing back The Masked Singer for Season 4.
The renewal was revealed Wednesday (May 17) during the network’s investors earnings call.
Fox CEO Lachlan Murdoch said the broadcaster was targeting a fall debut, despite the current COVID-19 production shutdown. “Should conditions allow for it, we are planning production in early August of Season 4 of The Masked Singer, which we’ll target for a fall debut,” he said.
I hope conditions are such that allow Hollywood and everyone else to get back to work. But it’s impossible to predict. Perhaps they can institute social distancing rules to make it work. It’s hard to imagine The Masked Singer “At home.” Would the celebrities keep their costumes at home? It seems impossible.
The Masked Singer 3, currently underway, managed to finish filming the season before coronavirus concerns halted TV and movie production around the world. The Masked Singer will air its finale Wednesday May 20.
The singing competition series features celebrities facing off against one another with one major twist: each singer is shrouded from head to toe in an elaborate costume, complete with full face mask to conceal his or her identity. With each performance, the host, panelists, audience, viewers and even the other contestants are left guessing who is singing behind the mask.
Ken Jeong, Jenny McCarthy, Nicole Scherzinger and Robin Thicke sit on the judges panel, while Nick Cannon hosts.
