Is The Masked Singer renewed for Season 9?

As of December 2022, we can confirm that the ninth season might still be in active development. But no official announcement has been made yet. We know that the first season ended with the finale episode, “Two Hour Epic Finale Pt. 1 and 2,” which was released on November 30, 2022. Given that the last season just finished its premiere season a few hours ago, any official confirmation from the network about a potential renewal doesn’t seem far too soon. The eighth season of The Masked Singer averaged 3.95 million viewers and a 0.72 rating in the 18 – 49 age group. 

Additionally, as highlighted by the tv series finale, Season 6 is down 23% in the demo and 12% in viewers in the live+same day ratings from this season. These figures are a very good indication of how a show is performing, especially when compared to other programs on the same channel, even though they do not take into account further delayed or streaming viewing. The higher-rated shows typically get renewed while the lower-rated ones get canceled, though there may be other economic factors at play.

Hence, in the meantime, fans should wait for the network to formally verify and acknowledge this information in such a short period of time. As we understand your anticipation of knowing what’s next in the franchise, you should know that the network may assess its performance and reception before renewing the series for future seasons, and it takes some time. Take a look at some of the tweets by the fans demanding the renewal of the series below:

The Masked Singer Season 9 Expected Release Date and Time Slot

The series has not been formally verified by the network, the prospective premiere date has yet to be acknowledged, and the status is neither here nor there. If the show’s announcement is made official in a couple of weeks, just like the prior seasons, we can predict that the potential release date might happen sometime around early 2023. It is expected to premiere on a weekly basis so it can have a similar gap to be consistent. 

The Masked Singer is an American reality singing competition television series based on the South Korean television program King of Mask Singer. The show, which involves celebrities singing anonymously in elaborate full-body costumes, was developed by Craig Plestis and is hosted by Nick Cannon. Four to six celebrities perform costumed covers of well-known songs on average during an episode in front of a studio audience as well as the panelist’s Ken Jeong, Jenny McCarthy Wahlberg, Nicole Scherzinger, and Robin Thicke. The celebrity with the fewest votes is eliminated from the competition and takes off their mask, revealing their identity after the audience and panelists vote for their favorite performance.

In addition to this, the premiere time of the episodes on the streaming platform is speculated to be at the same time slot of 9:00 p.m. every Wednesday, just like other original shows. In order to receive updates on when The Masked Singer Season 9 premieres on Fox network, interested viewers can also enable notifications. Until then, fans should keep a close eye on the social media handles of the show to learn about any new updates.
