I Can See Your Voice season 2 is the long-awaited second series of Fox's musical game show.

Aside from the show's first-ever Holiday Spectacular which aired on Dec. 14, 2021, there hasn't been a new episode of the hit game show for a while, but it's finally back for a brand new season of America's favorite guessing game.

The series (one of FOX's South Korean game show adaptations) will once again see lucky contestants competing for a chance to leave the show with up to $100,000 with the help of a group of celebrity sleuths, all by identifying a secret singer from a group of six people. What's the catch? They won't hear any of them singing a single note. 

Here's everything we know about I Can See Your Voice season 2...

'I Can See Your Voice' season 2 release date

The hit singing competition returned to Fox on Wednesday, Jan. 5, 2022 at 8 pm ET. New episodes air weekly at the same time in the same place.

What's the format for 'I Can See Your Voice' season 2?

Like before, contestants have to work through a series of rounds to sort the good singer from the bad. They'll take part in several rounds which contain hidden clues, video packages, interrogations, and lip-sync challenges as they try and find the right singer. Each correctly identified bad singer earns them $15,000 per round, $5,000 more than the first season.

After they whittle down the group to just one singer, host Ken Jeong then asks contestants whether they're willing to bet big on the final secret voice being a good singer, or if they want to walk away with the money they have. If they go big, they've got the chance to win the grand prize of $100,000, but if they've guessed incorrectly, they leave with nothing.

The final singer's voice is revealed in a final duet with the Musical Superstar of the week, where the final secret voice is revealed in either a fantastic collaboration or a hilarious bad duet!

For season 2, there have been a few changes to the format. The "Lip Sync Challenge" is now a "Lip Sync Showdown" performed by three groups of two singers (as opposed to two groups of three). Contestants may also use the "Golden Mic" once in this round, where they get to hear additional clues from a mystery guest off-stage.

Round four has also been switched up. Rather than being presented with a pitch-shifted studio recording of one of the three remaining singers, contestants will take part in the "Super Fan" round. Here, they'll be shown a video package of a super-fan obsessed with one of the remaining guests.
