Fox announced today that The Masked Singer has been picked up for a fourth season. Coming two weeks ahead of the show's third season finale, the renewal is a no-brainer, as the singing competition remains a strong performer.

Based on a format that originated out of South Korea, the series premiered in 2019 to an unsuspecting US audience with the potential to end up as another mid-season flop. But its strange, silly, and unique take on the reality singing genre piqued viewers' curiosity, and word-of-mouth took over from there.

The Masked Singer features celebrities going head-to-head in a singing competition that has an intriguing twist: each singer is wearing an elaborate costume that completely conceals their identity. Competitors include singers, actors, and athletes - all trying to keep the audience and panelists in the dark about who they really are. As singers are eliminated each week, their true identities are revealed.

Fox is targeting Season 4 of The Masked Singer for a premiere later this year.
