We can only be about six weeks away from the 27th season premiere of Fort Boyard on France 2 which means they’re filming very soon. Once all the episodes have been filmed the press will have a go and that’s when we’ll discover the new games and things that have been added this year (and some games which remained in the press pack even though it was discovered too close to filming that they don’t work and got dropped, ahem).
So if you’re on Twitter now’s a good time to follow Guillaume Ramain, one of the show’s artistic and creative directors, Pere Fouras and host Olivier Minne as they tend to drop oblique visual hints before and during filming.

What’s all that about? No idea. But he’s also put up a photo of a door in the shape of a monster’s head and what looks like a sort of 3D board-game of the Fort. Intriguing indeed. It will be interesting to see what they’ve nicked off The Cube this year and whether or not the show will be longer or shorter than last year, which frequently hit two hours fifteen and was rather eye watering.
