THE Masked Dancer, a spin-off from The Masked Singer, was purported to be a “limited masked event” by the Fox Network.
After seeing soaring success, however, fans have speculated whether the show will return to screens.
Will there be a season two of The Masked Dancer?
Season one of The Masked Dancer concluded on February 17, 2021.
Although nothing has been confirmed, show runner and executive producer James Breen hinted at the possibility of The Masked Dancer returning for a second season.
“We all hope it does [run for multiple seasons], but now it’s an event, it’s nine episodes, which in ‘The Masked Singer’ land is a much shorter run, but obviously we want to keep going forever and I think there’s potential, it’s a really fun show so I hope it goes for as long as it can,” Breen had said.
Reports have suggested that season two of The Masked Dancer, if it goes ahead, will be announced when season three of The Masked Singer airs.
The Masked Dancer follows the same format as The Masked Singer, but disguised celebrities are shaking a leg on the dance floor instead of flexing their vocals for judges.
The show premiered on December 27 and featured 10 celebrity contestants.
Who are the judges on The Masked Dancer?
Dr Ken Jeong, Ashley Tisdale, Paula Abdul and Brian Austin Green make up the panel of judges on The Masked Dancer.
The line-up all have past experience in singing, acting and dancing in the entertainment world.
Who won the first season of The Masked Dancer?
The Masked Dancer crowned Cotton Candy the winner in an emotional season finale on February 17, 2021.
And fans were shocked as the person underneath the Cotton Candy costume was revealed as Olympic gymnast Gabby Douglas.
The gold medalist beat Dancing With The Stars pro Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Dance Moms alum Mackenzie Ziegler for the title.
The audience along with judges Brian Austin Green, Paula Abdul, Ken Jeong and Ashley Tisdale were forced to choose the winner from three finalists -The Tulip, The Sloth and Cotton Candy.
Gabby showed her gymnastic credentials as she did impressive flips and tricks during her final routine to Alicia Keys’ Girl On Fire.
High School Musical star Ashley, 35, was moved to tears by Cotton Candy’s performance.
The Disney Channel actress said: “That was so beautiful, truly you were stunning,”
Before she was unmasked, Ken was adamant the performer was ice skater Michelle Kwan while Brian said another ice champion, Tara Lapinski.
Mom-to-be Ashley, meanwhile, believed it was Gabby’s Rio teammate, Simone Biles.
However Paula was also a winner on the night, correctly guessing that Cotton Candy was the World Champion gymnast.
