STAR ACADEMY 2023. It was during a Koh Lanta commercial break that TF1 finally made the news official: Star Academy is coming back for a new season in 2023. And the castings are open!

[Updated March 8, 2023 9:30 AM] It’s official! The Star Academy returns in 2023 for a new season. After a first season truncated from October to November 2022, Endemol and TF1 announced that a new edition would arrive well in 2023. It was during an advertising period of Koh Lanta: Le Feu Sacré that the announcement was formalized on the antenna of TF1. Do you feel like a student in Dammarie-lès-Lys? Know that you can already send your application to participate in the pre-season castings! All you have to do is go to this site to share your application with the production. It remains to be seen on what date this new season will be broadcast. The castings taking time, we can imagine that the Star Ac 2023 will arrive rather for the next school year on TF1.

Star Academy ended with a bang on November 26, 2022 with Anisha’s victory. In terms of audiences, the return of the cult TF1 show was a success with 4.2 million viewers for the bonuses on D 7, and 1.9 million followers for the dailies (still on D 7). Very encouraging audiences which made it possible to wait with a certain serenity for the announcement of the renewal.

On November 16, Télé Loisirs already announced the renewal of Star Academy for a 2023 season, citing “a source close to production”. However, this information was then denied by Jean-Louis Blot, president of Endemol France, to Puremédias, on December 15: “We are taking stock of this season, to see internally what has worked or not. We will know quickly enough if there is an additional season […] Nothing is signed”.

Now that Star Academy 2023 is official, the date and duration of the program are still in question. Recall that the Star Academy had lasted “only” six weeks in 2022 due to the programming of the Football World Cup at the end of the year. It is not impossible, in the event of renewal of the program, that the duration of diffusion is lengthened. However, this information has not been made official.

At the end of the Star Academy final broadcast on TF1 on Saturday November 26, 2022, Anisha was crowned the big winner of this season 10. After facing Enola, Léa and Louis in the final, she was finally chosen by the public to win the famous tele-hook this year. She therefore signs a contract to record an album with the record company Sony Music Entertainment France.

The Star Academy is distinguished from other current television programs by its format, mixing weekly bonuses and daily confinement reality TV. The bonus, at the end of which a candidate is eliminated, is broadcast on Saturday evenings on TF1. The “daily”, which allows you to follow the last 24 hours of the candidates (between their lessons, rehearsals and their daily and sentimental life), was broadcast from Monday to Friday at 5.30 p.m. on the first channel. It is not yet known what the potential date of a 2023 season would be.

The teachers are part of the identity of Star Academy’s castle. In 2022, there are five of them giving lessons and advice to candidates: Joël Bouraïma (sports teacher), Laure Balon (performance teacher), Yanis Marshall (dance teacher), Adeline Toniutti (singing teacher) and Pierre de Brauer (theatre teacher). Michaël Goldman, creator of the My Major Compagny label and son of Jean-Jacques Goldman, inherited the role of director of the château. Lucie Bernardoni from Star Ac’ 4 and Marlène Schaff are the rehearsals.

Whether premium or daily, Star Academy is visible in replay. As with its other programs, TF1 puts each new episode online for replay on its free streaming replay platform MyTF1. You just need to have an account, without having to pay, to have access to all the replays but also excerpts. It should also be remembered that for €2.99 per month, it is possible to follow Star Academy 2022 live on MyTF1 Max, from 8 a.m. to midnight Monday to Friday and Sunday from noon to midnight.

The Star Academy has invited major French and international stars during its various episodes. The 2022 season is no exception as Robbie Williams has been chosen to be the sponsor of this edition. Other international stars have also walked the Star Ac’ set, such as Lara Fabian or Tom Grégory. Among the French singers who have passed on the premium, let us mention the names of Juliette Armanet, Kendji Girac, Michel Polnareff, Adé, Dadju, Patrick Bruel, Marc Lavoine, Nolwenn Leroy, Elodie Frégé, Gims, Matt Pokora, Julien Clerc, Amir or Apple again.

Nikos Aliagas is part of the DNA of Star Academy, having presented each of the seasons since the launch of the show on TF1. It is therefore logical that he is back in the role of host of the tele-hook version 2022. He presents the bonuses of Saturday evening live. The second part of the evening is provided by Karima Charni, candidate for Star Academy 4, who has become a radio host. She is responsible for collecting the reactions of the candidates on the bus that takes them back to the castle of Dammarie-les-Lys after each bonus.
