Russian broadcaster Russia-1 has signed on to air a local version of the format in 2021. BBC1 will also air its version, produced by Fremantle-owned prodcos Naked and Thames and hosted by Paddy McGuinness, next year.
Fremantle has also secured format rights in nine other territories, including Norway, Hungary, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland, India, Mexico, Estonia and Lithuania.
The U.S. version, hosted by Ken Jeong, premiered in late September.
“With I Can See Your Voice continuing its journey to becoming a mega IP, it is our delight to be working with Fremantle for it to travel to many new territories,” said Diane Min, format sales head at CJ ENM, in a statement.
