The series is a spin-off of Mnet’s Queendom, where female K-pop acts competed for the title of the Number One girl group. Girls’ Generation leader and soloist Taeyeon, who hosted the second season of Queendom, will also be hosting the upcoming spin-off.

Queendom Puzzle will premiere on June 13, 2023 at 10pm KST on South Korean TV network Mnet. International availability for the upcoming reality TV series has yet to be announced.
