Nickelodeon's Unfiltered (also known simply as Unfiltered) is an American game show that premiered on Nickelodeon on July 11, 2020. The series is hosted by Jay Pharoah, with panelists Darci Lynne, Gabrielle Nevaeh Green, and Lex Lumpkin.

Premise

Celebrities hide their true identities behind an animated filter and voice changer in the game show, while panelists are given clues and compete to identify the mystery guest. Viewers can participate by downloading the show's filters to transform into the same characters as the celebrities.

Production

On May 6, 2020, it was announced that the show was greenlit under the title Game Face along with Group Chat with Annie & Jayden in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, necessitating remote filming.[1][2] On June 26, 2020, it was announced that the show was retitled to Unfiltered, and would premiere on July 11, 2020, with host Jay Pharoah and panelists Darci Lynne, Gabrielle Nevaeh Green, and Lex Lumpkin.[3][4]

On August 27, 2020, it was announced that Nickelodeon had ordered nine additional episodes for the series, that began airing on September 5.[5] On January 7, 2021, it was announced that Nickelodeon had ordered a second season, alongside seven additional episodes of Side Hustle, which premiered later that night.[6]
