The first episode of season six was set to air in August 2018. However, 20 minutes before it was supposed to air, it was suddenly announced the show had to be rescheduled. The show kept getting delayed. It’s reported the Chinese National Radio and Television Administration (NRTA) placed restrictions on minors appearing on television.
Fast forward to December 19th, it was discovered the sixth season was suddenly released on multiple platforms when Cherrie Ying’s father posted a poster of the show.
