Following a successful first season with an average 12.2% share, the marble competition format distributed by Talpa Distribution will return to the German network with a second season in 2022.

The marbles will continue to roll in Germany. After a successful first series, RTL Germany has recommissioned the marble racing show Marble Mania. The second season is set to air in the beginning of 2022.

The first season outperformed the channel average with an average market share of 12,2% in the key demo 14-49.

After the Netherlands, where the first season proved to be the biggest hit on SBS in five years, Germany is the second country to recommission the show. The show also aired in France (TF1) this summer and is set to air in Belgium (VTM) soon.

On each self-contained episode of this marble spectacle, three celebrities take each other on. And this time, they get to play in front of a live studio audience. Each celebrity gets to play with their own color marbles. Each round starts with a skill assignment, such as bowling, mini golf or a special version of penalty shooting. The three celebrities need to prove their skills to win the most marbles to start the second game of the round: the game of luck. This marble race is all about speed, gravity…. and luck.

Although, in contrary to last season, on this season the celebrities can influence these games of luck. The celebrity whose marble crosses the finish line first, earns the most points. After three rounds, the celebrity at the top of the ranking will get the most marbles to start in the finale, in which the celebrities can win money for a charity of their choice. The finale is the most impressive and nerve-wrecking round of them all.

Marble Mania is produced by Talpa Entertainment Productions and distributed by Talpa Distribution.
