Fox is doubling down on the masked celebrity talent competitions with adding The Masked Dancer to its lineup.
The upcoming reality competition series has dropped its first teaser, introducing viewers to competitors the likes of Cricket, Exotic Bird, Sloth, Zebra, Tulip, and Cotton Candy.
It was announced last month that Craig Robinson will serve as the shows host, Ken Jeong will perform double duty on both The Masked Singer and The Masked Dancer and will be joined by fellow panelists Paula Abdul, Brian Austin Green, and Ashley Tisdale. The teaser also previews the panelists making a few of their guesses.
Based off the name, you can guess that the show is a spinoff on the network’s very-popular The Masked Singer. On the new show, celebrity contestants will be dressed head-to-toe in elaborate costumes, and will be performing dancing routines with equally disguised partners and backup dancers.
Some subtle hints have been given as to help narrow down who the masked celebrity dancers might be. Here is what we know so far; combined the celebrity competitors have amassed more than 38 million albums sold worldwide, 20 Emmy Award wins, 20 Grammy Award nominations, 10 World Dancing titles, five New York Times best-selling titles, four Olympic gold medals, and three Broadway show appearances.
The Masked Dancer will premieres this December on Fox.
