Ready your detective hats: "The Masked Singer" returns next month.

Fox announced Wednesday that the new season of the singing competition featuring celebs disguised in costumes will premiere Sept. 23 (8 p.m. EDT/PDT). A sneak peek of the season will air Sept. 13 (8 p.m. EDT/5 p.m. PDT). Thankfully, a Season 4 trailer, also released Wednesday, has introduced the show's new characters.

Some seemingly take inspiration from the kitchen – Broccoli, Popcorn and Mushroom – while others are a part of the animal kingdom – Snow Owl, Crocodile, Giraffe, Seahorse and Jellyfish. Others seem a bit more monstrous perhaps, like Gremlin, Whatcha Macallit, Squiggly Monster, Dragon and Baby Alien. One character is out of this world: Sun.

The costume for Crocodile is revealed ahead of the Season 4 debut of Fox's "The Masked Singer."

Season 3 of the series wrapped in May, crowning its first female celeb as the winner: Kandi Burruss' Night Angel. (The Season 2 and 1 winners were Wayne Brady and T-Pain, respectively). Burruss, a cast member on Bravo's "Real Housewives of Atlanta" who also formed the female singing group Xscape, beat rapper Bow Wow (Frog) and former teen idol Jesse McCartney (Turtle).

Nick Cannon will return as host after his recent controversy. Following an apology that came a day after ViacomCBS cut ties with the TV host over recent anti-Semitic remarks made during a June episode of his "Cannon’s Class" podcast, Fox issued a supportive statement, which said it would keep Cannon as host of "The Masked Singer."

Ken Jeong, Jenny McCarthy, Nicole Scherzinger and Robin Thicke are the show's resident sleuths.
