‘Lego Masters’ (stylized as ‘LEGO Masters’) is the American iteration of the wildly popular British reality series of the same name. It revolves around contestants who undertake Lego-building challenges with the hope of winning a cash prize of $100,000 and the ultimate honor of being the Lego Masters. The series first premiered in 2020 and has received a fairly positive reception.
The two Primetime Emmy Awards nominations are a testament to its popularity. After the conclusion of the show’s sophomore outing, fans must be eager to learn whether the ingenious game show will return for another round. So, here’s what we know about the potential ‘Lego Masters’ season 3.
Lego Masters Season 3 Release Date
‘Lego Masters’ season 2 premiered on June 1, 2021, on Fox, with the season finale airing on September 14, 2021. The second installment contains 12 episodes (2 more than its predecessor) that have a runtime of approximately 43 minutes each.
As far as a third installment is concerned, Fox is yet to officially renew the series for a new season. The viewership for season 2 fell drastically in comparison to the debut season, which could be a cause of concern for the network. However, fans need not worry as Fox has previously played hardball with respect to the show’s renewal.
The second season was officially announced nearly seven months after the season 1 finale aired. Moreover, Fox hasn’t explicitly announced the cancelation of the show. Therefore, the chances are that the network could greenlight season 3 in the coming months. If everything goes accordingly, we expect ‘Lego Masters’ season 3 to premiere sometime in Q1 or Q2 2022.
Lego Masters Season 3 Cast: Who can be the Host and Judges?
Will Arnett is the host of ‘Lego Masters.’ You may recognize him from the 2017 animated film ‘The Lego Batman Movie‘ as the voice of Bruce Wayne/Batman. The creative designers for the LEGO group, Jamie Berard and Amy Corbett, serve as the judges for this competition series. The second season also features Ken Jeong and Jennifer Love Hewitt in guest appearances.
If the show is recommissioned, Arnett is likely to return as the host, along with Berard and Corbett back in the judges’ seat. After a dismal lack of guest judges in the second season, the third season will hopefully have more celebrity judges stopping by on the show. Brothers Mark and Steven Erickson emerged as the winners of season 2. The third season will feature a fresh batch of Lego-building competitors.
What is Lego Masters About?
In the show, Lego builders compete against each other in pairs. Each episode has a particular theme based on which the contestants must create their builds. The judges then pick the top team and bottom two teams from that week based on their performances. After the first week, teams begin to get eliminated one by one on a weekly basis. However, the contestants have a chance to earn the Golden Brick, which provides them with immunity from elimination whenever they like.
Once the previous holders of the Golden Brick avail their privilege, it becomes available for other competitors to earn. The format of the show has mostly remained untweaked for the first two seasons. Therefore, we expect season 3 to follow a similar format. A fresh set of 10-12 teams will be seen in the new season competing for the Lego Masters trophy and the cash prize of $100,000.
