Once again hosted by Will Arnett, voice of the Caped Crusader in The LEGO Movie and The LEGO Batman Movie, the third season will see teams of two contestants vying for the ultimate prize of $100,000 (and the title of LEGO MASTERS). And the premiere isn’t far away: you’ll be able to catch the first episode on FOX on Tuesday, May 31.
Little else is known about the new season so far, including whether LEGO designers Amy Corbett and Jamie Berard – who judged teams in the first two seasons – will return. We’re also waiting to be introduced to the LEGO fans who will be competing for the grand prize, but based on the previous two seasons it’s bound to be an eclectic mix of personalities.
LEGO MASTERS originally began life in the UK, but the show has been effectively dormant on this side of the pond since 2018. All momentum is clearly with the US version, which is now on its third season in as many years. The competitive building format is also still going strong in countries including France and Poland, which have already aired (or will soon air) new seasons in 2022.
The show’s international expansion is also showing no signs of slowing down, with fresh exports to Colombia, Czech Republic and Slovakia, Finland and New Zealand all on the cards for this year and beyond. The latter already has two seasons lined up into 2023, for instance, though details including the host and cash prize are yet to be announced.
