What Is ‘LEGO Masters’ And Where Can You Watch It?
The series LEGO Masters is coming back for a second season this year. The contest stands out from other competition shows, as it highlights contestants with an amazing talent.
If you’re new to the concept, you might want to learn what it’s all about. Read on to find out more about how the show works, and where you can watch the upcoming second season.
What Is The Show ‘LEGO Masters’?
LEGO Masters premiered last February on Fox. It features contestants building various projects using LEGO bricks. The toy isn’t just for kids, as these builders create some seriously impressive stuff.
The show is based on a British series of the same name that premiered on Channel 4 in 2017. Versions of the show have also aired in several other countries, including Australia and Germany.
The show is hosted and executive produced by LEGO Movie voice actor Will Arnett, and judged by the LEGO Group’s Amy Corbett and Jamie Berard. Guest stars have included Terry Crews and Mayim Bialik.
Teams of two builders are tasked with building projects out of LEGOs, based on a theme. They’re given a time limit to complete the build. The winners of the first challenge receive a Golden Brick which can be turned in for immunity in a later challenge. Contestants are competing for $100,000 and a LEGO Masters trophy.
When Is Season 2 Premiering?
The first season of LEGO Masters was won by married couple Tyler & Amy. Amy found out she was pregnant during filming, and the couple revealed the news on the show. Their son Timothy was born last July.
Season 2 of LEGO Masters was confirmed last November, with Will Arnett back as host and producer. According to Variety, the show is set to film in Spring 2021, to air sometime later this year on Fox.
Preparations for the second season were announced last May, but negotiations reportedly took a while. Last season was a success, with Variety reporting that it was the No. 1 new entertainment program among ages 18-49, and the No. 1 new reality series, with an average of 9.7 million viewers.
