Lego Masters Season 3: Release Date, Cast, And New Details

"Lego Masters" has proven that playing with the popular bricks isn't just for kids. The reality show, which originated in the U.K. in 2017 and launched in the U.S. in 2020, showcases teams of two builders working together to create impressive projects judged by Jamie Berard, the senior design manager and creative lead, and Amy Corbett, a senior design manager, both at The Lego Company. The winners receive a $100,000 grand prize. Will Arnett, who voiced Batman in "The Lego Movie" series, hosts the competition (per FOX).

"After almost 10 years of making LEGO movies, they had this idea for this show and it just seemed so organic for me," Arnett told USA Today. "I've never done this before. It was a very meta experience. ... A lot of times I felt like I was more a cheerleader ... I was like a fan who had been let in the room."

Season 1 of "Lego Masters" averaged a 1.13 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 3.51 million viewers (via TV Series Finale), becoming the No. 1 new entertainment program among adults 18-49 and the top new reality series among total viewers (via FOX). Now, fans are wondering if there will be a Season 3 of the show.

Will there be a Season 3 of Lego Masters?

The Season 2 finale of "Lego Masters" aired in September, and so far, there has been no word on whether or not the show has been renewed for Season 3. While Season 2 ratings were disappointing, TVLine pointed out numbers did get a boost as new episodes aired. And as Fansided shared, it did take around six months after the Season 1 finale for Fox to officially renew the reality competition show. 

"Lego Masters raised the bar for all competition series, wowing fans with its wildly creative builds," Rob Wade, president of alternative entertainment and specials at FOX said in a statement at the time. "Add to that our insanely dynamic host, Will Arnett, and it's just a great hour of family-friendly fun. We can't wait to see this new batch of LEGO contestants attempt to master Season Two's even bigger and better challenges, brick by brick."

Fans have had some reason to be worried since Season 2 saw an average rating of 0.47 in the 18-49 demographic and 1.54 million viewers — a 58% drop from the previous season (via TV Series Finale). However, there is some good news: The network appears to be taking applications for the next season!

What will the cast of Lego Masters Season 3 look like?

It looks like Fox is currently accepting applications for the next season of "Lego Masters," requesting that all candidates be 18 years or older by January 1, 2022. While Season 1 of "LEGO Masters" featured ten teams of builders, Season 2 had 12 teams (per Lego). It remains to be seen if a potential Season 3 will add even more teams to the challenge, but judges Jamie Berard and Amy Corbett are likely to return, and Will Arnett will probably be back as host, as well as continue to serve as an executive producer. 

"Lego has been such a huge part of my life for the last 10 years, which is a sentence I never thought I'd say, and it just seemed like such a natural fit for me," he told Deadline. "Having been witness to so many great Lego creations over the years through the films, I just thought, 'Well, this is going to be a really cool way to bring this Lego-building community to a bigger audience.'"

Some famous faces have appeared on the show

Host Will Arnett isn't the only star viewers have seen on "Lego Masters." Some of the notable names who have shown up as guest judges include  Terry Crews, Mayim Bialik, Nicole Byer, Phil Lord, and Chris Miller. There was also a special "Star Wars" themed episode that featured appearances by BB-8, C3PO and R2-D2 (per The Brick Fan). And it sounds like Bialik would be up for another round if the show is renewed for Season 3. "This was seriously so much fun to do. When can I go back? I promise to practice my builds so I can be a true LEGO Master!" she tweeted.

And while Arnett loves his hosting duties, one thing you won't see him do on the third season is try to build with the competitors. "No, no, no. These guys are so good that I'm so embarrassed to build in front of them. If they ever came to my house and saw this stuff that my son and I worked on — well my son's actually pretty good. But I'm so bad at it," he told The Brothers Brick.
