Bell Media has confirmed that its competition format The Launch will return for a second season.
Season one (6 x 60 minutes) premiered in January to an average 2+ audience of 1.14 million viewers (across CTV, CTV Two, Much, VRAK and Canal Vie) and was later picked up by Sony Pictures Television (SPT), which is distributing the format and the original Canadian series worldwide (excluding Canada). As well, SPT’s London, U.K.-based production company Electric Ray signed on to produce a local version of the format for the U.K. market.
Filming is scheduled to begin in Toronto in September, with new episodes premiering as part of CTV’s 2018/19 season. Casting is now OPEN!
