Lego Masters second season announced
THERE is no need to panic if you are already worried about Lego Masters finishing on Tuesday night.
Nine has commissioned a second series which will start production later this year with a return to our screens in 2020.
The breakout TV hit of the year for all age groups has continually topped the rating timeslots in five metro capital cities, including Perth.
The Lego-inspired format has eight pairs of contestants competing against each other for $100,000 in prize money, completing technical and creative challenges with the famous plastic coloured bricks.
Hosted by Hamish Blake, it is judged by Ryan “Brickman” McNaught, the only Lego-certified professional in the Southern Hemisphere.

Nine television director Michael Healy said Lego Masters appealed to the entire family and they were thrilled by how warmly Australian viewers had embraced the show.
“It boasts a great array of characters, the likes of which we haven’t seen on other programs,” Healy said.
“At its core, Lego Masters is a celebration of creativity, showcasing the power of imagination. We can’t wait to see what our teams create for viewers in 2020.”
Endemol Shine Australia chief executive Mark Fennessy said Lego Masters had been the breakout hit fascinating the nation.
“The passion for Lego construction is truly infectious,” Fennessy said.
“It encourages pure imagination and brilliant family engagement. We look forward to bringing the world even bigger OMG moments in Lego Masters series two.”
