Fox’s The Masked Singer was the unforeseen hit of the 2018 television season, with their hidden celebrities performing behind intricate costumes.
The premise of the show had 12 celebrities, including actors, athletes and singers, performing hit songs in front of live audiences, disguised in off-the-wall costumes. The object of the show was to guess who was behind each mask. America fell in love with the reality series which saw Robin Thicke, Jenny McCarthy, Ken Jeong and Nicole Scherzinger question the masked singers and guess along with the audience at home.
As a result, season 2 will premiere on Monday Sept. 23 with more talent—going from 12 celebs to 16 and new masked characters.
“I heard that because the first season was so successful that so many what they call A-list celebrities have clamored to be a part of season two,” judge Jenny McCarthy said of the new season.
“I hear the costumes are even more elaborate. I hear last season we had 12 performers [and] I hear we got 16 now. And I hear there’s, like, an egg [costume],” host Nick Cannon revealed about season 2.
The hit show has been revealing their characters via Instagram leading up the show, including The Egg, The Flamingo, The Leopard and more. Check out the 16 new characters that will be entertaining us on The Masked Singer when it premieres on Sept. 25.
The network will be offering a Super Sneak Peek this Sunday, September 22 at 8/7c on @foxtv.
