A bit of digging around on the microblogging platform Weibo has revealed that the second season of the Chinese hit reality TV show Call Me By Fire is currently in the works and will see newcomers in addition to return contestants. Of all the new faces on the show, 32-year-old Thai star Mike Angelo has excited Chinese netizens the most.

Both a reality TV show and a talent competition, Call Me By Fire pitches established male celebrities against one another, with the winners forming a performance group. Not limited to singers and dancers, the contest welcomes entertainers of all sorts, including actors and martial artists.

A massive hit when it debuted last summer, the all-male Mango TV program is a follow-up to the all-female reality TV show Sisters Who Make Waves, which aired its third season in May.

Angelo will appear alongside other famous faces such as Wilber Pan, Richie Jen, Alec Su, Van Ness Wu, Zheng Jun, Alex To, Chang Chen-yue, Raymond Lam, Hawick Lau, Jordan Chan, Julian Cheung, and Nathan Scott Lee.

Angelo, a Chinese-Thai singer, actor, model, and dancer, was formerly a member of the band Golf-Mike. He has appeared in Thai dramas like Full House and Kiss Me as well as Chinese dramas such as Wu Xin: The Monster Killer, My Amazing Boyfriend 2, and Delicious Destiny.

In 2021, Angelo was cast in the Hollywood blockbuster The Misfits alongside Pierce Brosnan and Jamie Chung.

Netizens are hyped for his upcoming appearance on Call Me By Fire. A Weibo hashtag related to the news has accumulated almost 46 million views at the time of writing. Fans have also dropped adoring and supportive comments underneath photos and videos of the Thai star.

“I’m expecting brother [Angelo] to shine on the stage!” commented a fan.

“He’s so handsome. I wish I were in the audience! My heart has already fallen for him,” wrote another netizen.

Banking on the influence of celebrities who have been in the entertainment industry for over a decade, the show’s first season hit a nostalgic note with viewers and was a huge success.

While an official release date has yet to be announced for the second season, it is rumored to be released as early as August 2022.
