The Masked Dancer aired its first season back in a week-long string of episodes, but it seems there may not be a season 2 to look forward to.

The ITV series was launched in May after the success of sister show, The Masked Singer, which made a comeback with a second season in the winter months.

But whilst The Masked Singer continued to pull in strong ratings for ITV and has become a firm favourite on the New Year schedule, The Masked Dancer struggled to capture the same attention from fans.

Speaking to, the show’s host Joel Dommett commented: ‘Fingers crossed it comes back, it’s a privilege to be a part of a situation where it doesn’t matter too much if it doesn’t come back because The Masked Singer is the most important thing, really.

‘It’s nice to have that extra show in the middle of the year so we’ll see whether they both happen or just one of them happens.’

The Masked Singer has already been confirmed to be returning for a third season, with show bosses having previously teased some of the weird and whacky ideas they have.

Executive producer Dan Nettleton said to ‘We don’t intend for this to be the same every year, and partly because of the beauty of the format, it means you can do bonkers things.

‘In a traditional kind of talent show, there are limits to where you can take the show, but with a show that relies on Badgers singing against Sausages and Blobs, there really isn’t a limit.

He went on to tease some ‘crazy high concept ideas’ which viewers might get to see come into fruition in season three.

The panel for the upcoming series will see Jonathan Ross, Davina McCall and Mo Gilligan all back on the panel, with it expected Rita Ora will also return to take up her spot once more.
