America's Got Talent: All-Stars Season 1 Release Date, Cast, And More Information

"America's Got Talent" is back — with a twist! The iconic talent search will be returning to TV outside of its usual summer slot to bring us the first ever season of the brand new spin-off titled "America's Got Talent: All-Stars," which will be joining the ranks of previous offshoots like "America's Got Talent: The Champions" and "America's Got Talent: Extreme." The new incarnation of the long-running variety show was officially announced in October and, per The Hollywood Reporter, will see acts from previous seasons return to the stage to compete once more. And it won't just be newer acts who are showing off their talents once again, either, as we'll be getting familiar faces from the past 17 seasons of the main show — which will even include past winners! Not only that, but Simon Cowell told People that the series will also see acts from other iterations of "Got Talent" will appear from around the world, including "Britain's Got Talent" and "Romania's Got Talent."

But when will we get to see the new show, who will be competing, and who are the judges? Well, sit back and relax, because this is everything you need to know about "America's Got Talent: All-Stars" Season 1.

When does America's Got Talent: All-Stars Season 1 premiere and how can I watch it?

When Variety confirmed in October that "America's Got Talent: All Stars" would be hitting our screens, we only knew the new spin-off would be coming sometime in 2023. Now though, we know the official premiere date — and we won't have to head far into the New Year to watch the show's much-anticipated pilot episode. While "America's Got Talent" is usually more of a spring/summer show (Season 17 debuted in late May, while Season 16 came out in early June 2021) the latest spin-off will be filling in those cold winter months when the holidays are over, bringing a little "AGT" joy to winter.

You can expect to catch the first episode of the "AGT" spin-off premiere on NBC right after the Holidays on January 2, 2023, at 8 p.m. ET, with new episodes following weekly on Monday nights, per People. The show can also be streamed via NBC's website and catch up services. It's not yet been confirmed how long Season 1 will run for, but with the amount of acts competing this year, it's looking like the season will last several weeks.

Who's competing on America's Got Talent: All-Stars?

Get ready, because "America's Got Talent: All-Stars" Season 1 has quite the cast! A whopping 60 acts will be competing against one another, so you'll have to bear with us on the cast list.

What else you need to know about AGT: All-Stars

If you've seen "America's Got Talent," you'll already pretty much know how pretty how "America's Got Talent: All-Stars" will work. In this iteration, though, NBC has revealed that 10 acts will compete each show (skipping the usual audition stages we love to see) and they'll be trying to get one of five golden buzzers on offer from the judges in order to sail through to the final. The winner will also be determined by a group known as AGT Superfans, who will also have a vote in order to send one more act through to the final. They'll then vote again when the 11 finalists are determined and will crown the first ever "AGT All-Stars" winner.

Things are set to get pretty competitive when the seasoned acts return, too. Simon Cowell opened up about the new season to People, admitting that no one is holding back and everyone wants to win. "It was absolutely fascinating... I was interested in their stories, why they wanted to do well on this show. There was a real sense of competition," the ex-"American Idol" judge said of filming the competition. He also revealed that, as we've seen with past seasons, the acts stories and backgrounds will play a big part on the show. "These are not professional acts... they've just got a talent, they've got a dream. And just seeing that, I think it makes you feel great," he said.
