The brick building competition will be back in 2023.
December 14, 2022
Fox announced today that LEGO Masters has been picked up for a fourth season. The good news comes ahead of tonight's 2-hour season finale, which will crown a new team as brick building champions.
Based on the hit British series, Will Arnett hosts this LEGO-based competition that combines design, imagination, and creativity. Teams of LEGO enthusiasts face off with an unlimited supply of LEGO bricks as they compete in ambitious building challenges in an attempt to be crowned the most talented amateur LEGO builders in America.
The current season of LEGO Masters is the first to premiere as part of the network's regular fall schedule. Its first two seasons were spring and summer entries respectively. It remains to be seen where in the 2023-2024 schedule Fox decides to air Season 4.
Fans of the show can also look forward to a holiday-themed 'Lego Masters: Celebrity Holiday Bricktacular,' which will air as a three-night event beginning December 19.
Maybe it's an American thing, but season 2 was going downhill. Sure we tuned back in to see the builders. But every episode was progressively slower. Just building. Building. Boring builders with no panace.
I was going to stop watching after that season. I tuned into S3. I think the interplay of the brash Will and the more and more likeable builders is what has made me choose to tune into season 4.
But for deities-sake, don't blame any host for the very boring season two builders. If anything, the S03 cast gave as good as the host got. (?) They held their own against the bombastic Arnett.
If you care intensely about every brick, there are probably sites to watch builds.
Sure, sometimes I would like the series to not show them running around like 15 seconds of dangerous track running helps your build.
I'd rather they give us a few 3-ta-5 minute "closeups" where we can see some bits about some of the parts.
American version with "the yet to be described per episode" Arnett
is fun to watch.
You'd love the Australian version. It's the primary reason I like it more than the US one... it focuses much more on the craft and doesn't over-sensationalize like the US one. The host is goofy but in a genuinely entertaining and not distracting way. The judge (Ryan McNaught aka Brickman) is fantastic as well and you can tell he's really passionate about the subject and sad to see people go.
Season 1 was great. He started going off the rails in Season 2. I would much rather see more build processes than Will mugging it up for the camera or kissing the butt of some celebrity with a tie-in to the current episode.
I haven't checked out the overseas versions, but I'll have to do that this winter.
