The “Star Academy” will soon be making a comeback on TF1. In the meantime, renovation work at the Château de Dammarie-les-Lys continues.
Those nostalgic for telecrochet no longer believed in it. And yet, the star Academy will indeed make its big comeback on TF1! Advertised by The Parisian and made official by the front page a few weeks later by the channel, this new season should be broadcast as soon as next fall, with dailies and bonuses. The iconic castle of Vives-Eaux in Dammarie-les-Lys, in Seine-et-Marne, will therefore reopen its doors to welcome a new promotion of academicians, who will follow singing, theater or even dance lessons there in the hope of becoming complete artists. The casting is already open to young talents who would like to become worthy successors to Jenifer, Nolwenn Leroy or the late Grégory Lemarchal. Internet users can even try their luck on TikTok to be recruited and be part of this great adventure.
If the composition of the teaching team of the star Academy has still not been revealed, and that the selected candidates are still not known, the renovations at the castle of Dammarie-les-Lys, they continue. At the end of the eighth and final season of telecrochet broadcast on TF1 in 2008, this mythical building had been bought, and had no not been renovated since. So it was time to give it a facelift, and the construction promises to be massive. Saturday June 25, the cameras of the show 50 mins Inside, broadcast on TF1, were authorized to film the progress of this refreshment work. The opportunity for the producer of the star Academy to unveil the major changes that will be made in this residence.
“We will do something great in it. We go change the layout of the roomswe go all redecoratewe go use parts that were not used before“indicated Jean-Louis Blot, who promises “something different”. The specialists of the show should therefore be entitled to a few surprises…
On the other hand, if the building will be renovated, an object already present during the first seasons of the competition will keep its place within the enclosure of the castle. It’s about famous phone, which offered students one minute of calling a loved one per day, and no more. Cell phones will therefore remain prohibited. “They have to take full advantage. So no phone. No social networks“hammered Mathieu Verge, another producer of the StarAc. Above all, candidates must, as was customary in the early 2000s, remain in “a bubble”. “They must stay focused on their job. They have to take advantage of their own time, with the teachers, with the principal or the headmistress, but without the outside“, added Mathieu Verge. A disconnection that is becoming more difficult these days for young people, but which will certainly benefit them.
