iQIYI officially premiered the third season of its highly anticipated original hit competition show Youth With You. The variety show brings together 119 idol-candidates from 68 agencies for training to compete for viewers’ votes and become the few trainees to debut as an idol group.
Whereas the second season of the show focused on the female idol group market, Youth With You 3 strives to tell more unique and inspirational stories of the trainees to allow audiences to accompany their favorite idols through their journey and witness their growth. As the show garnered much worldwide appeal, the new season introduces a global twist for the first time ever, where fans across the world will be able to cast their support for their favorite contestants via the iQIYI International website (iQ.com) or the iQIYI International App.
BLACKPINK’s LISA returns to the show as a dance mentor. Chinese singer-songwriter CHRIS LEE boards the show to give trainees advice about their professional career and life beyond the conventional idol-training system and to help bring out their potential as this season’s Youth PD. Music mentor Ronghao Li, rap mentor WILL PAN and youth tutor Esther Yu from THE9 are set to make surprise guest appearances.
With a new slogan, “This is my way,” season three attempts to inspire trainees of different backgrounds and ages to explore and express their own individualities. The show first launch in 2019 with the purpose to help young and talented idols become public role models.
Youth With You is scheduled for worldwide broadcast exclusively on iQIYI, Suike, QIYIGUO TV, and iQIYI International every Thursday and Saturday at 8 PM CST with subtitles available in 10 languages.
