We were fully obsessed with series one of The Masked Singer when it arrived on ITV earlier this year.


While some reality shows fail to live up to the hype, this was properly addictive telly that left the whole nation asking unusual questions like, "Who is Queen Bee?" and "Why does Rita Ora think everybody is Charli XCX?"

Although the show is actually perfect for an era of social distancing, it will be a little while before series two hits our screens. So why not tune into the original American series, which inspired the UK show, to fill the void?

Here's everything you need to know about where to find it and how to watch.

Where and when can I watch The Masked Singer US?

It's coming to ITV on Saturday afternoons! Tune in from Saturday 6th June at 4.40pm.

ITV appears to be skipping series one, instead starting with the second series of the US show, which originally aired last September. Remember to be careful with your Google searches, as the big reveals are now out there for US audiences!
