Based on the hit UK series, LEGO® Masters USA is on the way!
The hit television phenomenon, LEGO® Masters, has entertained fans around the world. Soon, North American viewers will get a taste. To that end, entertainment groups Endemol Shine, Tuesday’s Child, and Plan B Entertainment are teaming up. Ultimately, they will bring LEGO® Masters to the USA.
For those unfamiliar with LEGO® Masters, it is a reality TV series. Specifically, contestants compete with each other in weekly LEGO® design challenges for the title of LEGO® Master. The show first launched in the UK, where it has already seen two seasons. Subsequently, the series was adapted for the German and Australian markets.
The show will air on Fox in 2020.
So far, there is no official launch date. Fox has picked up the series, and it will air sometime in 2020. Currently, the show it in the casting stages. In order to apply, one member of the team must be over 18 years old, and contestants must be legal residents of the United States. Sadly, Canadian residents cannot take part. However, if we are lucky, the show will air in Canada as well. For more information, or to apply, you can click here to visit the official site.
I have never watched LEGO® Masters before, but I am certainly curious. I might even watch some of the other versions of it to get ready. What are your thoughts on LEGO® Masters coming to North America? Be sure to comment below. For more LEGO® news, be sure to check truenorthbricks.com regularly.

This is great news! I saw LEGO Masters on my last visit back to the UK and for a reality show it’s pretty darned good.
The format is basically teams of two – one adult, one kid – competing in various challenges. Some of the episodes I’ve seen included building a bridge to span a given gap (which they then drove a massive r/c car over to strength test) building a scene from history (we had everything from the Ice Age to the ’70s) and a drop test in which they were all given the same bricks and had to design a creation for maximum splatter when dropped. They’re not always your typical building challenges.
I was actually a little surprised at how well it seemed to be doing as a show; I’m still used to thinking of LEGO as a niche hobby. Still, it’s engaging enough that you don’t have to be an uber-LEGO-nerd to enjoy it.
I hope they do well with the US version. American TV has an unfortunate distressing habit of taking excellent British shows and making inferior clones.
That sounds awesome. It’s interesting to hear that the show is not all master-builder style challenges. I really hope it does well in the US too. LOL – “uber-LEGO-nerd”, I like that one.
