At the conclusion of Season 2 of Claim to Fame, one star ultimately won $100,000 after defeating 11 other competitors who have relatives who are secret celebrities.
In Season 2, we witnessed the breakdown of Tom Hanks’ niece, the sobbing of Jimmy Carter’s grandchild, and the complete lack of awareness of Donny Osmond’s identity. But now that Season 2 has ended, we want to know if there will be a third season and, if so, when it will return.
Will Claim to Fame Return for a Third Season?
ABC has not officially confirmed the return of “Claim to Fame” for a third season as of now. The second season of the show concluded with Gabriel Cannon being declared the winner on August 28. Impressively, Season 2 witnessed a significant boost in ratings compared to its inaugural season. Season 1, which premiered in July 2022, averaged 1.82 million viewers, whereas Season 2 achieved an average of 2.066 million viewers.
Season 2 of “Claim to Fame” managed to attract a notable lineup of contestants, including relatives of prominent figures such as Dolly Parton, President Jimmy Carter, and Tom Hanks. This star-studded cast hinted at a heightened general interest in the series.
Hosted by Kevin and Franklin Jonas, the competition generated viral moments that resonated with fans, adding an extra layer of engagement. From a journalistic perspective, the show also witnessed a substantial increase in reader comments on Season 2 articles compared to Season 1.
With no clear end in sight for the WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes, ABC is faced with the challenge of adapting its programming lineup to account for the absence of returning shows. Given the growing audience for “Claim to Fame” and the network’s need to maintain programming continuity, it seems logical for ABC to renew the show for Season 3.
When Does Claim to Fame’s Season 3 Premiere?
Although the status of Claim to Fame Season 3 remains unknown, it is expected to debut in late June or early July of 2024. On July 11, 2022, Season 1 debuted, and on June 26, 2023, Season 2 got underway.
But with the strikes by the WGA and SAG, it’s feasible that Season 3 will air sooner rather than later as networks rush to find programming that doesn’t require talented actors or writers.
How can I watch Season 3 of Claim to Fame?
As with Seasons 1 and 2, Season 3 will probably premiere on ABC and be available to stream on Hulu the following day, but we can’t be certain of that.
How Does Claim to Fame Function?
Twelve famous relatives are placed in a house together and told to keep their famous relative’s identity a secret if Season 3 unfolds similarly to Seasons 1 and 2. The competitors are required to compete in challenges every week, many of which provide hints about the identity of the celebrity. The week’s task winner receives immunity as well as a further hint about a different houseguest.
But this is the point at which the plan is implemented. The two challenge losers are put up to be that week’s “Guesser.” Which of the two losers the remaining competitors want to be the Guesser will be decided by a vote. Next, the Guesser has to pick out a different cast member and make a celebrity relative prediction.
The individual the Guesser revealed is sent home if their guess is accurate. If the Guesser guesses wrong, on the other hand, they are sent home when their own famous relative is exposed. Even though it sounds hard, watching the show really makes it much simpler.
