The Masked Singer will return to Channel 10 for a second season in 2020.
The four judges, Dannii Minogue, Dave ‘Hughesy’ Hughes, Jackie ‘O’ Henderson and Lindsay Lohan, will also be returning to the franchise.
Jackie revealed on KIIS FM on Tuesday that there will be several major changes to the format next year.
‘We want to make the clues more cryptic because we feel that maybe we kind of got too many of them,’ she said.
Jackie added that producers want to cast a more varied group of celebrities.
‘You want stars that I think you would never expect to be on a show like that or you didn’t know could sing,’ she said.
