Bandicoot Scotland, part of the Argonon Group, has been recommissioned by ITV to produce a second series of entertainment series The Masked Dancer.

Bandicoot, who recently collected an International Emmy (Non-scripted Entertainment) and an RTS Programme Award (Entertainment) for ITV’s The Masked Singer, has been commissioned to produce 8 x 90’ episodes of The Masked Dancer, to return in 2022.  The Masked Singer returns for a new third series on ITV on January 1st, with Christmas special The Masked Singalong airing on December 25th.

Joel Dommett once again hosts The Masked Dancer and will be joined by a celebrity panel to be announced next year.  Last year’s celebrity detectives included Oti Mabuse, Jonathan Ross, Davina McCall and Mo Gilligan, with the likes of John Bishop, Holly Willoughby and David Walliams also joining as special guests for the first series.

Bandicoot MD 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 said: “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.”

The series is produced by Bandicoot Scotland, part of Argonon. The series is executive produced by Derek McLean, Daniel Nettleton, Claire Horton and Iain Peckham. It was commissioned for ITV by Katie Rawcliffe and Joe Mace.

The Masked Dancer will air in 2022.
