Almost fourteen years after its stop on TF1, the star Academy is about to make its big comeback on the channel. According to information from our colleagues from Le Parisien, a French singer has been mentioned to replace Gérard Louvin as director. Don’t worry, Objeko’s editorial staff will tell you everything about it. Are you ready ?
The Return of Star Academy
This Tuesday, May 3, TF1 made a little surprise to its viewers. Indeed, the first channel announced the return of the Star Academy. It is with a trailer, broadcast during Koh Lanta, that she launched a great casting. The broadcast is scheduled for October, after the broadcast of The Voice Kids. Obviously, the Star Academy, will find its animator from the beginning: Nikos Aliagas. A pledge of security:“Nikos knows the show, he has easy contact with French and international artists, he knows how to handle the unexpected”.
But small difference with the time. Indeed, the master of ceremonies of The Voice should not host daily broadcasts. Who will be in his place? So far, no one has the answer. Exit Armande Altaï or Kamel Ouali who marked the daily newspapers with their courses. According to our colleagues from Parisian, it will no longer be Gérard Louvin who will be in charge of the management of the Star Academy.
Mika, director of the new season?
As we told you previously, Gérard Louvin will no longer be present in his role as director. Indeed, the production is looking for a renowned personality for this job. A delicate choice since the star chosen to lead the school will be the very figure of this new generation of stars. Thus, TF1 thinks of Mika:“Someone in Mika’s lineage: popular, credible and who likes to transmit”.
Especially since the singer is not unknown to Star Academy. Indeed, in 2021, he was one of those who revived the show in Quebec: “Especially since the 38-year-old artist participated in the revival of the show in Quebec in 2021, where he held the role of artistic director, under the authority of director Lara Fabian.“. It remains to be seen now, if he is ready to take on this role in France. Case to follow.
What about the Star Academy castle?
The question everyone is asking is will the singers be in the castle of Dammarie-les-Lys. Well, the answer is yes. Still according to our colleagues from Le Parisien, between the students of the show, will therefore reopen its doors when it had been sold in 2008. Bought for 3.8 million euros, it was in full renovation because the owner was then intended to make it a place of reception. On the other hand, the owner did not wish to touch the toilets where the messages of the former candidates of the show are always engraved on the walls. Before the next ones? It’s possible.
