‘Lip Sync Battle’ Renewed for Season 2 at Spike TV

Get ready for more celebrity showdowns, because Spike TV has renewed “Lip Sync Battle” for a second season, Variety has learned.

Season two will consist of 20 new episodes, slated to debut in 2016.

“’Lip Sync Battle’ is a television and viral rock star for Spike,” said Kevin Kay, president of Spike. “We are thrilled to be renewing ‘Lip Sync Battle,’ whose success is a direct result of the brilliance and creativity of our producers, the brave performers and, of course, the coolest new duo on television, LL Cool J and Chrissy Teigen.”

The first season, which has boosted Spike’s exposure both in the television landscape and digital arena, has welcomed the likes of Jennifer Lopez, Emily Blunt, John Legend, Common, the Rock, Justin Bieber, John Krasinski dressed in drag and Anne Hathaway on a wrecking ball.

The series, which launched as a spinoff to Jimmy Fallon’s popular “Late Show” segment, is the most-watched show in the history of the cable net. Krasinski and Stephen Merchant, who first introduced the game on Fallon’s show, are exec producers on the TV hit. LL Cool J serves as the host, and Teigen serves as commentator.

Digitally, the show’s performance clips have amassed more than 107 million video streams since its premiere on April 2. Hathaway’s “Wrecking Ball” performance alone brought in 14 million views on “Lip Sync Battle’s” YouTube page, which has over a half-million subscribers.

All production details, premiere date and participating talent for season two will be announced at a later date.
