Legendary has returned to our screens with another dose of dramatic ballroom action – and viewers can expect several changes to the format of the competition.
The HBO Max show pits houses from the ballroom scene against each other in a series of weekly competitive balls.
These “houses” of underground ballroom culture were originally created by iconic transgender woman Crystal LaBeija in late 1970s New York.
The show aims for contestants to achieve legendary status, with winners having a massive $100,000 cash prize up for grabs at the program’s climax.
Part of Legendary’s audience draw is its fabulously extravagant fashion performances, while folks also tune in for the drama off the dance floor under the celebrity panel each week.
And now these famous faces among the judges have received a great shock.
Who will replace Meghan Thee Stallion in Season 3 of Legendary?
American rapper Megan Thee Stallion, real name Megan Jovon Ruth Pete, is no longer part of the panel as she left Legendary Season 3.
Taking her place is US actress, singer and television personality Keke Palmer, who is already making an impact.
Her appearance on the Legendary Season 3 panel means Palmer will rarely be off our screens in 2022.
The actress has filmed roles in thrillers Alice and Jordan Peeles nopewhile Palmer’s distinctive voice can also be heard on Netflix human resourcesDisney+ The Proud Family: Louder and prouderand Pixar’s highly anticipated Toy Story spin-off light year.
At the time of writing, there hasn’t been an official explanation as to why Megan has ended her collaboration with Legendary for Season 3.
The news coincides with the emergence of a video clip showing model Cara Delevingne falling during Megan Thee Stallion’s red carpet moment at Sunday’s Billboard Music Awards.
But as the songwriting career continues to take off, it’s very likely that Megan Thee Stallion will focus on her music for now.
news week has reached out to HBO Max, the legendary Season 3 platform, for comment on the panel’s restructuring.
Who are the Legendary Season 3 judges?
Palmer will be joined as permanent judges by Jameela Jamil, Law Roach and Leiomy Maldonado.
Additionally, dancer and pose actor Dashaun Wesley has returned to host the competition’s reality show.
Legendary Season 3: What to Expect
Legendary initially features 10 houses from the ballroom scene dancing, twirling and generally working on the dance floor in order to win the $100,000 prize.
The first three episodes of Season 3 were released on premiere day, Thursday May 19, 2022.
Legendary will then release a trio of episodes each week until the show debuts the final episode on June 9th.
And remember, for those viewers who’d like to reminisce about all the drama from the first two seasons, these two are still available to stream on HBO Max.
Seasoned Legendary viewers can expect some A-list appearances on the show and Weekly entertainment confirms that the upcoming episodes will be no different.
The celebrity site has announced that Issa Rae, Kelly Rowland, Leslie Jones, Pose star Dominique Jackson, Anitta, RuPaul’s Drag Race star Bob the Drag Queen and Grammy nominees Sophie Hawley-Weld and Tucker Halpern will be guest judges on the third season of Legendary .
