    First Performance (Nekkoya (Pick Me))

    News/Info (Thanks to @NoxDWN @Renappon for this)
    • 08/11/17:
    • OSEN release a report about "Produce 101” making a return with a third season in collaboration with AKB48 to creat a girlgroup again.
    • MNET responded "The contents of the article reported today are groundless."
    • 29/11/17:
    • Mnet officially announce Produce 48 at the 2017 Mnet Asian Music Awards (MAMA) in Japan with a video teaser after a common performance between contestants from MNET survival shows & AKB48
    • Official statement from Mnet:
    • Produce 48 is a project that will combine the competition system of Produce 101, featuring viewers selecting which idols will debut, with the “idols you can meet” concept of AKB48, which performs in a designated theater for fans.
    • Produce 48 will aim to form a global girl group. Mnet has teamed up with AKB48’s producer Yasushi Akimoto for the project, and they’re collaborating with him to prepare a show that will present new experiences to Korean and Japanese viewers as well as music fans.
    • Mnet’s Produce 48 will be airing in mid-2018, and this AKB48 and “Produce 101” collaboration is said to be a program that will be on an unprecedented scale. "
    • 10/12/17:

    • Ahn Joon Young the PD of the previous seasons will be back to direct Produce 48
    • A source from MNET confirmed that "Ahn Joon Young will be leading Produce 48, a new program that will combine the competition system of Produce 101 where viewers select which idols will debut, with the “idols you can meet” concept of AKB48, performing in a designated theater for fans."
    • 16/01/18
    • Insider sources reported that "Produce 48 will feature female contestants from both Korea and Japan, with trainees from both countries competing for spots in a single group (...) the producers are already in the process of selecting trainees, stating, Mnet’s Produce 48 has begun meeting with female trainees in Korea and Japan. PD Ahn Joon Young, who headed Seasons 1 and 2 [of ‘Produce 101’], is currently going back and forth between the countries as part of pre-production.”
    • 25/01/18
    • CJ E&M held a presentation on contents media solutions and revealed that Produce 48 is likely to begin airing in May
    • 06/02/18
    • NAVER ENTERTAINEMENT claimed that members of winning group can be in multiple groups at once (eg. Gugudan/DIA/WJSN during I.O.I) and be active as artists actress or variety. There are rumors of 5 year contract, but expected to be finalized less than that.
    • Broadcast is confirmed for may.
    • 11/02/18

    • A representative from MNET responded "This was one of the topics that we were discussing with AKB48’s producer several months ago. As much as both countries are working closely together, a great deal of coordination is required and details are constantly changing. The production team is doing their best to bring you a better program. Please look forward to it.”
    • News which I ignore where they came from but are considered as being true

    A source from Mnet commented, “The contestants then expressed their desire to continue filming, so they returned and went on with filming,” and added, “For safety, we have decided to no longer film with drones. We will pay more attention on the safety on set from now on. We apologize.”

    Do you think this will make other idol agencies follow suit? Although there were botched attempts in the past.

    So will the members be Korean? Like a sister group in Korea? Or will it be a Produce 101 Japanese version?

    :glare: Actually, Mnet itself has made botched attempts in recent past, Boy24 and Idol School are epitomes of survival show disasters.

    Not all of the survival shows work. Mixnine is failing wonderfully at the moment, and that should have some pull.

    To me, at the moment, this announcement brings more questions and queries than actual joy at its potential.
    I would like to see some more concrete information from the parties involved about what this is going to be like, what/who will be involved and the desired outcome, etc etc.
    All we have at the moment is the name of a potential show and the knowledge of what each element - Produce 101 and 48G - involves. I'm going to take a step back from making guesses about what could happen to wait to see what actually does.

    as of now, this can be anything!
    1. Audition show with Produce 101 format for new sister group (with korean members only). Not sure if idol theater would work in Korea, but if the show got enough hype, the winning members could attract enough people to come to the theater. 11 winning members for media senbatsu while the next 11 for theater job.
    2. Survival show with Produce 101 format with the inclusion of 48G members, for a Japan+Korea collaboration group. I reckon this would be more realistic. A collaboration group promoting for one year just like IOI and WannaOne.
