“Asia’s Got Talent Season One was unprecedented in its scale and was billed as the world’s largest talent competition. Never before has a series united so many diverse cultures to celebrate the art of performance. The viewer response across the region was overwhelming and reflects the strong demand for locally relevant content that is engaging, surprising and incredibly entertaining,” said Virginia Lim, Senior Vice President and the Head of Content, Production and Marketing, Sony Pictures Television Networks, Asia.

“This season, we’re embarking on yet another regional search, in a vibrant region that is home to more than half of the world’s population.

Asia’s Got Talent is slated to premiere in the second half of 2017, first and exclusively on AXN.
