Although Network 10 is yet to reveal the news, the singer herself has told us she will be coming back.

In news which will delight fans (and executives at Channel 10), TV Blackbox can confirm Lindsay Lohan will be returning for season 3 of The Masked Singer Australia.

Lohan was unable to take part in the filming of season 2 due to COVID-19 restrictions and was replaced by comedian Urzila Carlson.

Unfortunately, that led to a decline in ratings and network executives have been keen to get Lohan back.

The season two debut was down 37% from 1.2 million in 2019 to 733,000 in 2020. In overnight figures the season average in the 5 cap cities was 928k in 2019 compared to 816k in 2020 (that’s a drop of 12% year on year).

What’s unclear is whether the panel will expand to five or whether Carlson will exit the show.

Lohan dropped the news while speaking to Abbey Mikkelsen, a producer on The Ben, Rob & Robbo Internet Show:

“I will be back in Australia for season 3”

Last month, as reported by The Daily Mail, judge Dave Hughes revealed Lindsay believed she would be returning, but the news was not confirmed, with the star saying:

‘I think so!!!! I hope so!!!!’

That news is now confirmed.

Filming for the next series is likely to take place around the middle of 2021, hopefully with an easing of COVID-19 restrictions which saw the show having to film the finale from multiple locations after an outbreak on set.
