I know we’re all going through a lot right now, but the time has come to check in on America’s (other) national nightmare: The Masked Singer. It seems like just yesterday that the Egg and the Banana landed on the hellscape known as planet Earth, and yet somehow, we’ve already endured three entire seasons of the show. And now, it’s confirmed: We’re gonna have to deal with a fourth. Which means (a) a whole new batch of “celebrity” contestants who need to fire their PR people and (b) a whole new batch of foods/animals that’ll be forever ruined. Truly, I can never eat a taco again thanks to THIS clearly evil criminal mastermind:
Because it’s best to keep our friends close and our enemies closer, here’s everything we currently know about The Masked Singer season 4.
Season 4 Will Air in the Fall
It’s officially official. The fourth season of Masked Singer will return to FOX as part of its fall TV lineup on Wednesday, September 23rd. It’ll be sticking to its 8 p.m. Wednesday night time slot. Sooo, clear your calendar/cancel your plans.
The Judges and Host Will Be the Same
Some more good news: no one is replacing anybody this season. Nick Cannon will be hosting the show again and Nicole Scherzinger, Ken Jeong, Robin Thicke, and Jenny McCarthy will return as panelists.
Viewers Will Be Able to Have a Say on Who Stays and Who Goes
Yup! We’ve got the power. For the first time in Masked Singer history, viewers will have the chance to vote on their fave performances. A certain group of viewers, a.k.a. “Super Fans” will be chosen to be part of a virtual audience that will allow them to watch each performer from home and vote on who they’d like to move forward. Should be very interesting.
Production Started Super Recently
Taking all COVID-19 precautions, the show went back into filming on August 20. This means they only had a month to get the show runnin’ before its scheduled premiere date! Here’s hoping that means it’s an absolute and total mess because… entertainment.
The New Characters Remain a Mystery, But…
Fans are already nominating celebs in the comments section on The Masked Singer’s recent Instagram. Some notable ideas include:
Reminder: Here’s How the Show Works
If you’ve never seen The Masked Singer, RUN AND HIDE, IT’S NOT TOO LATE. But also, here’s how the show works: Each week, a fleet of people who identify as “celebs” perform onstage whilst wearing costumes that are almost certainly cursed. They’re then voted off one at a time until there’s just one last mask standing. T-Pain won season 1, Wayne Brady’s head popped out of a stuffed fox in season 2, and honestly, who knows what might happen when the season 3 finale finally airs, but it’s sure to be terrifying.
