'Secret Story' could soon return to your screens. It looks like a new season of the show is already in the works.
Last year, TF1 surprised its viewers with the great return of the “Star Academy” . The first channel broadcast the first episode of the musical program on October 15, 2022, 15 years after its shutdown. The 2022 edition of “Star Academy” was a hit with viewers . A good result for the production which had hesitated between tele-hook and the reality show “Secret Story”.
If the « Star Academy » got production favor in 2022 , “Secret Story” may return this year. Lots of internet users impatiently awaiting the return of this cult show 2000s. The clues seem to indicate that they won't have to wait any longer.
For almost 7 years, the first channel broadcast 'Secret Story' . From 2007 to 2014, Benjamin Castaldi took care of the presentation of this show of secrets.
As a reminder, the program followed the adventures of the candidates who had to keep the secret . The participants of this reality show were locked in 'The House of Secrets' .
For several weeks, they must try to discover the secret of others . 'Secret Story' was the show that started the careers of many personalities. For several seasons, the show had a lot of success with TF1 viewers .
Things took another turn with the arrival of new reality shows like “Les Anges”. Christophe Beaugrand became the presenter of the show from the 2015 edition. Over the seasons, the audience of “Secret Story” has dropped enormously . The show even had to switch to the NT1 (TFX) channel to finally stop in 2017.
Since then, fans of the show had hoped for his return , but no sequel was ever announced. Christophe Beaugrand explained that the production of the show was expensive, however, it was not profitable enough .
Last year, several rumors were running on the web regarding the return of “Secret Story” . First, fans of the show heard that the program was going to return to TF1. Then, a rumor insinuated that Amazon Prime had bought this flagship program from TF1 .
