FOX has set the fall premiere dates for its new and returning series for the 2019-2020 season.

Kicking off the new season, the 71st Primetime Emmy Awards will air LIVE coast-to-coast from the Microsoft Theater at L.A. LIVE in Los Angeles on Sunday, Sept. 22 (8:00-11:00 PM ET live/5:00-8:00 PM PT live) on FOX. 

On Wednesday, Sept. 25, television’s #1 new series, The Masked Singer returns with a special two-hour season premiere (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT).

According to host Nick Cannon, the phone has been “ringing off the hook” with A List celebrities who want to join the show. He also reveals that instead of 12 contestants, The Masked Singer season 2 will feature 16 celebrities.  Additionally, “somebody is going to be dressed in an egg.” OK then! 

The biggest challenge for season 2? Keeping the identities of the celebrities under wraps. Nick says security will be even tighter than before. The show’s popularity means the hunt for spoilers will be ON. But with the whole point of the show being a puzzle and a guessing game, spoilers would ruin everything. Good luck, FOX keeping a lid on your secrets…

Nick will be joined once again by panelists Robin ThickeJenny McCarthy, Nicole Scherzinger and Ken Jeong.
