Fox announced today that The Masked Singer has been renewed for a seventh season. The good news, which arrives just over a month before its return, was expected, as the show continues to be a solid draw for the network.
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. Three years later and it is still going strong.
The Masked Singer features celebrities going head-to-head in a singing competition that has an intriguing twist: each singer wears 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.
This show has jumped the shark. All the new gimmicks and the obvious staged exits, along with guest one-day performances/unmasking to coincide with some sort of marketing campaign, has made this show unwatchable. The anti-vaxxer needs to go too. Whoever thought Jenna McCarthy adds anything to a show, obviously couldn't look higher than the her silicone distractions
