The grand finale of The Greatest Dancer season 2 – the elite dancing competition from the BBC – has now taken place, and fans will be eager to know whether or not the show has been renewed for another season.
We’ve done our research to find out everything to know about the future of The Greatest Dancer, including updates on season 3, how to watch from outside of the UK and who will be presenting and judging on the show if it is renewed.
Is The Greatest Dancer season 3 happening?
The shows hasn’t technically been announced for another season yet – but if it were to return, it would likely be in January 2021, running until March 2021.
Ratings haven’t been super high for the competition, so we’re not entirely sure if it will be renewed. The Metro reported that viewing figures for the finale dropped by nearly 50% from last year, and that there are rumours of the crew being told to find alternative work. However, we’ll keep our eyes peeled and update this article with more news as we get it.
How can I watch The Greatest Dancer?
The Greatest Dancer airs on BBC One – and some limited episodes and clips can be found on BBC iPlayer. Unfortunately, entire seasons aren’t available on demand right now, but they may eventually come to BritBox in the future – we’ll keep checking in to see if that happens.
If the show is renewed – or if you’d like to catch up on episodes still on iPlayer – then there are ways to watch it outside of the UK as well. Using a VPN (virtual private network) changes your IP address, so you can browse the internet as if you’re based in another country. For watching The Greatest Dancer, you’d need to connect to a UK server.
For the widest range of servers and best performance, we’d recommend either NordVPN or ExpressVPN – you can take a look at other recommended options in our list of the best VPNs for streaming.
Who will the presenters and judges be?
Assuming that there are no changes to the line-up as it is, the show will be presented by Alesha Dixon and Jordan Banjo, and judged by Matthew Morrison, Oti Mabuse, Cheryl and Todrick Hall.
Who won season 2?
The victors of the latest season of The Greatest Dancer were Michael & Jowita, a ballroom and latin pair who hope one day to be picked as professionals for Strictly Come Dancing. They were mentored by Strictly winner and pro herself, Oti Mabuse.
