Host Joel Dommett will return to host the 8x90' series in 2022. The panel of celebrity detectives is to be confirmed.
The format will feature 12 celebrities stepping onto the dancefloor to take on character alter egos as they trip the light fantastic in a bid to wow the panel and confuse with their moves.
Clue packages will accompany every Masked Dancer to help the panel and at home detectives crack the case of who the famous faces behind the masks are. From ballet to ballroom, salsa to swing and everything in between, the mystery line up will be dancing onto screens in 2022.
Bandicoot managing director Derek McLean and creative director Daniel Nettleton said: “’The Masked Dancer’ wowed audiences last year and we’re thrilled to bring back the show for another series of crazy costumes, mind-blowing moves and maddeningly compelling clues. With the mayhem we’re lining up for 2022, we are already planning for the most bonkers series yet.”
Katie Rawcliffe, ITV head of entertainment commissioning, added: “Only on ‘The Masked Dancer’ would dancing flamingos, frogs and car washes keep the nation on the edge of their seats, so we’re very happy to bring back more of the same bonkers entertainment in 2022.”
