'I Can See Your Voice' Renewed for Season 2 on Fox
Fox is tuning up for a second season of I Can See Your Voice.
The broadcaster has renewed the unscripted series hosted by Ken Jeong following a solid debut run in the fall. Jeong, who's also an executive producer, and judges Cheryl Hines and Adrienne Bailon-Houghton are set to return.
"I Can See Your Voice is such a deeply fun and genuinely suspenseful show, with the amazing Ken Jeong at the heart of it," said Rob Wade, president alternative entertainment and specials at Fox. "We are so grateful to our producers, James McKinlay and Craig Plestis, along with the entire crew, who brought this show to life and are working to make Season Two even bigger and better."
I Can See Your Voice is based on a South Korean format from CJ ENM and produced and wholly owned by Fox Alternative Entertainment, the network's in-house unscripted studio. In the show, contestants — with the help of Hines, Bailon-Houghton and a rotating panel of guest "detectives" and music stars — have to distinguish good singers from bad ones, without ever hearing their voices. The chosen singer then reveals if they're good or bad by performing a duet with the week's guest artist.
The series averaged a 1.3 rating among adults 18-49 — third among first-year series on the broadcast networks — and 4.84 million viewers, including a week of delayed viewing. Multiplatform viewing pushed the total audience to 6 million viewers, per Fox.
McKinlay serves as showrunner and executive produces with Plestis (The Masked Singer) and Jeong.
