Exclusive: NBC Readying a Second Season of ‘The Sing-Off’

Decent ratings and good reviews prompt Peacock to order another round of the a capella competition

NBC is tuning up a second season of "The Sing-Off."

Nothing’s official yet, but Peacock alternative executive vice president Paul Telegdy told TheWrap he’s started planning for another cycle of the a capella competition.

"We’ll be bringing ‘Sing Off’ back," Telegdy said. "We don’t know when. But we believe we’ve found a little gem, one we can buff up and make better."

"Sing-Off" scored steady, solid ratings during its mid-December run, averaging around a 2.5 in the adults 18-49 most nights. NBC aired eight hours of competition over four nights, a cost-effective way of determining audience interest in the concept.

It’s possible NBC will repeat the scheduling strategy with season two. But they network is also considering other ways of airing the show, including a more traditional week-by-week approach.

The first "Sing-Off" was produced by Sony Pictures Television, Tenth Planet and Outlaw Entertaiment. Joel Gallen was among the executive producers of the show, which was hosted by Nick Lachey.
