TELEVISION – The TV show season is about to begin. From Thursday, February 10, viewers will be able to find the flagship TF1 and M6 programs almost every evening in the first part of the evening: Beijing Express (M6), The voice (TF1), Love is in the meadow (M6), Top Chef (M6) and Koh Lanta (TF1).
To find you there and not miss the first episodes of these new seasons, Le HuffPost prepared a release schedule for you. And this year, TF1 and M6 production decided to renew. To Top Chef and The voicethe jury won’t be quite the same until it is Koh Kant and Beijing Expressnew rules will diversify the game.
Thursday, February 10
The first show to return to the small screen is the adventure of the Beijing Express. The first episode of In the Land of the Golden Eagle will be broadcast on Thursday 10 February at 9.10pm on M6. And this fifteenth season of the game promises to be spectacular. Eight couples, selected from 90,000 entries, will begin their journey in the mountains of Kyrgyzstan, then cross Uzbekistan and Jordan before playing in the grand finale in Dubai.
This year, in addition to the traditional red and black flags, a new rule enters the game: the Express Pass. In the first round, one of the pairs will have the opportunity to recover this sesame, which will allow him to escape from the final duel.
Because at the end of each stage, the last arriving team chooses the one they want to face in the final sprint from the other pairs. This race must determine which team stays in the game. A duo with an Express Pass can decide to play against the final pick of the team that arrived last in the round. Unless it’s last or first, in which case both adventurers are protected. Express Pass can only be played once and will not be transferred to another team during the game.
Saturday, February 12
TF1 has also decided to change a few rules for the new season of The Voice, which will air on February 12 at 9.10pm. This ended the knockout test that usually followed the battles. They will be replaced by a new event – “supercross battles”.
A name that sounds, but the principle is quite simple, because in the end it is the second round of crusades. The principle is basically the same as in battles, only this time the singers are not part of the same team. Each coach chooses who he wants to send to vote on the opposing team’s talent, and the public decides. The winners of the crusades will face each other in supercross battles with the same rules.
But the news doesn’t end there for TF1. In addition to the four regular coaches (Florent Pagny, Amel Bent, Vianney and Marc Lavoine), a fifth artist enters the judging panel: Nolwenn Leroy. However, the singer will not form a new team. She will be able to select four talents from among those who did not convince the jury during the blind auditions. Of these four candidates, only two will be able to return to the game after the Battle Test if one of the four coaches selects him for his team.

The six-person cooking competition will also return in mid-February. The first episode of Top Chef Season 13 will air on February 16 at 9:10 p.m. And this year, the channel decided to shake up its jury composition. After the unexpected departure of Michel Sarran, the jury for this 13th season will consist of Héléne Darroze, Philippe Etchebest, Paul Pairet and the “little” newcomer Glenn Viel.
Fifteen chefs will compete in “destabilizing, surprising and completely unusual events,” promises host Stéphane Rotenberg. But “it’s not because we’re looking for a culinary avant-garde, it defines the whole season,” concluded Paul Pairet at the press conference to launch the new season. “Not everything will be disconnected from everyday cooking.” A clever mix between “craziest challenges” and “benchmark events” to satisfy all taste buds.

The first hour will take some getting used to for fans: Koh Lanta will definitely not be broadcast on Friday nights, but on Tuesdays, just like the 20th anniversary season, which ended without a winner due to allegations of cheating. The first episode of next season will be televised on February 22nd at 21:10 on TF1.
In this one Koh Lanta: Cursed Totem, Denis Brogniart arranged for 24 new adventurers, 12 women and 12 men, in the Palawan archipelago in the Philippines to compete in immunity and comfort tests. And this year, the candidates were surprised to learn that there are not one but two totems. For the first time in the show’s history, the Indestructible Immunity Totem will be accompanied by an evil twin, the Cursed Totem.
“We wanted to tap into something strong, keeping the immunity totem that audiences have known for two decades,” explained Julien Magne, director of programming at Adventure Line Productions, at a press conference. HuffPost. has helped
The principle is simple: an immunity totem protects candidates from elimination in the council, while a cursed totem will weigh down the candidate or the team that loses the comfort test will inherit one of the curses planned and revealed during the game. However, the cursed totem will only appear in the first part of the adventure. He will make a cameo return after the reunion.
