Nine has given the green light to a second season of LEGO Masters from Endemol Shine Australia for broadcast in 2020.

Adapted from an original U.K. format from Tuesday’s Child and The LEGO Group, the show averaged 2.2 million viewers in its debut season on Nine. It was the highest-rated premiere of any series this year in Australia.

Michael Healy, director of television for Nine, noted, “LEGO Masters is wholesome viewing that appeals to the entire family and we’re thrilled that it has been so warmly embraced by Australian viewers. The show boasts a great array of characters, the likes of which we haven’t seen on other programs. At its core, LEGO Masters is a celebration of creativity, showcasing the power of imagination. We can’t wait to see what our teams create for viewers in 2020.”

Mark Fennessy, CEO of Endemol Shine Australia, added, “It’s the breakout hit that’s fascinated the nation—the passion for LEGO construction is truly infectious. Visually exciting, with warmth and good humor, LEGO Masters encourages pure imagination and brilliant family engagement. We look forward to bringing the world even bigger ‘OMG’ moments in LEGO Masters season two.”

In its home market, season two aired on Channel 4 earlier this year. A German version ran last year. Endemol Shine North America and Tuesday’s Child are partnering with Brad Pitt’s production company Plan B to bring the show to the U.S.
