It's expected to air in April.
TVXQ has been confirmed as the MCs for the show:

Starship confirmed Monsta X isnt participating. It's been rumored that Mnet blacklisted Cravity and Jeong Sewoon, also under Starship, as a consequence to them refusing to send Monsta X.
Anyways, shameless post to ask yall to check out Ateez.
