Fans were thrilled when The Masked Singer announced production on Season 4 had commenced in mid-August. What was once derided as the weirdest reality show concept on television is now one of its best distractions. Every week, viewers come together as a family on Twitter and try to figure out which celebrity is behind each mask. The first three seasons upped the stakes each time with more stars and wilder costumes. And the first glimpse of what characters will be in The Masked Singer Season 4 promises this season will not be any different.
The press release announcing the new season boasts of just how decorated this iteration's crop of mystery contestants is. When taken as a group, these superstars have "sold more than 281 million records worldwide, appeared in more than 5,475 episodes of television and 151 films, appeared in five Super Bowls, have four stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and one Time 100 Most Influential persons."
But of course, the hardware decorating these celebrities' living rooms isn't what fans care about. Like any major red carpet event, they're asking, "What are you wearing?" After costumes that have ranged from cats to monsters to inanimate objects and even a Thingamajig, this season's list of costumes are reaching new and fantastic heights.
Check out the rundown:
The first costume fans got a full look at is Crocodile, featured in the Season 4 poster.
There's also a properly pompadoured Giraffe.
This season will also introduce a Jellyfish.
Personally, I consider this dragon Targaryen Representation until shown otherwise.
Someone is having a moment in the sun, or, to be more accurate, a moment as the Sun.
And there's no need to pop popcorn for this season, as the show has brought its own.
Remember, you can't sing without Lips!
After two seasons of oval-shaped monsters, the new Squiggly Monster is up in arms and eyeing the competition.
But the most intriguing is the double costume dueting pair of Snow Owl.
The other outfits promised, though not yet revealed, include:
- Baby Alien
Could Whatchamacallit be related to last season's Thingamajig? Time will only tell.
The Masked Singer will return to the airwaves with the first sneak peek on Sunday, Sept. 13, starting at 8 p.m. ET. The Season 4 premiere will then follow 10 days later in the series' regular time slot of Wednesday at 8 p.m. ET, starting Sept. 23.
