Ahead of Wednesday’s two-hour semi-finals, the network announced a fifth season to debut in 2021.

“This show brings joy to so many families across the country, especially during these trying times, and we can’t wait to get even more celebrities suited up in crazy costumes for an hour of pure fun every week,” Rob Wade, president of alternative entertainment and specials at Fox Entertainment said in a release.
