Name That Tune Season 2 Release Date, Cast, And More Information

"Name That Tune" is one of those shows that it just feels like will be around forever in one reincarnation or another. The show originally hit the airwaves all the way back in the 1970s and has been revived multiple times since then, with another iteration airing in the mid-1980s before it was brought back as the show we know today in 2021.

That version was announced in November 2020, with Deadline confirming that Fox had rebooted the show once again with none other than seriously wealthy "30 Rock" star Jane Krakowski taking on hosting duties, while the uber-talented former "American Idol" judge, musician, and record producer Randy Jackson headed up the band.

The first season of the new version — which has contestants putting their musical knowledge to the test and, you guessed it, naming that tune — aired 10 episodes between January and March 2021, but with a year having now been and gone since the new episodes came out, fans have naturally been wondering when (or even if) the musical competition would be back for more.

If you're a fan of the show and you like good news, boy do we have something exciting to tell you!

Name That Tune Season 2 premiere date

That great news we promised you? It's that we know for certain that "Name That Tune" will be back. And not only will it be back at some point, we already know exactly when it's returning, too! Fox confirmed in January that the music show will definitely be back for Season 2, revealing that new episodes will commence on March 29 at 9 p.m. ET. It's though that, just like in Season 1, the episodes will be an hour long.

As for what we can expect from the second season, well, if it ain't broke, don't fix it, right? We're expecting the new episodes to follow a pretty similar format to the first set, which included a series of first-round games including; By Request, Mixtape, On Shuffle, Remix'd, Spin Me Round, and Title Track.

The contestants then move on to play the Bid-a-Note round, with the winner advancing to the prestigious Golden Medley, where there's the potential to win a hefty $100,000 prize.

Who will be back for more?

Who will be back for "Name That Tune" Season 2 we hear you ask. Well, it's thought that Jane Krakowski will be back to host the second season after a successful run on the first round of shows with Randy Jackson back as band leader. Fox hasn't officially confirmed their return and both have stayed stchum on social media (Jackson hasn't posted about a second season on Instagram while Krakowski doesn't have public social media pages).

However, it seems pretty likely the two will be back as their names were mentioned in a casting call for audience members which were uncovered in October 2021. A poster for the show uncovered by Dublin Live confirmed that new episodes were being filmed in Dublin, Ireland (which made quite the change from the first round being filmed in Australia) in November 2021, while also revealing Krakowski and Jackson as the hosts.

Of course, the contestants will remain a mystery until the show airs, though we know that the audience members could receive free tickets which included complimentary refreshments and the chance to win a bunch of prizes, including €1,000 (that's around $1,131!) in cash.

Fox clearly appreciated all the hard work the two did on the first season, praising them in a social media post at the end of the season. "Give it up for our incredible #NameThatTune host, Jane Krakowski and bandleader, @randyjackson — what an amazing journey!" the show wrote on Instagram in March 2021.

What else you need to know

It seems like we could potentially see more singing from Jane Krakowski on "Name That Tune" Season 2. As viewers of the first season will already know, the "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt" actor actually belted out a tune of her own during the Season 1 finale in March 2021 — and it was understandably great thanks to her impressive career on Broadway.

The talented star gave us an impressive rendition of Pat Benatar's classic, "Hit Me With Your Best Shot," alongside the show's live band, as she praised the musicians and their impressive ability to play almost any song thrown at them before launching into her own song.

If you missed it and want to see it for yourself — or even just want to re-watch the show before new episodes hit the airwaves in March — all 10 episodes of Season 1 are available to stream via both Hulu and FOX NOW.
