CGT48 (short for Chengtu48) is a Chinese idol girl group and the 5th sister group of SNH48.

The group was originally announced on September 25, 2017 on a conference of STAR48. After originally being cancelled in December 2019, it was officially announced on February 25, 2023, and made their debut on June 2, 2023.


The group was rumored by VIP Users of the SNH48 app. Some VIP users uploaded through the Weibo a column with several sister groups : SNH48, BEJ48, GNZ48, SHY48 and CKG48. The sixth column says "COMING SOON". This made fans think of the possibility of CGT48's formation. Rumors were that the group would be announced on SNH48 Group Team Shuffle or SNH48 Group Request Time.

Original Announcement

The group was announced on September 25, 2017. The producer of the group, Wang Zijie, announced on conference that they would introduce a new sister group of SNH48 in Chengdu : CGT48. The group would have their own theater in Chengdu, and even the auditions has been planned. They spent around the 500 million yuan to build this idol girl group and it's theater. Even the website has been registered.

Originally Cancelled

The group was originally cancelled in early December 2019.[1] This was stated after an insider uploaded a screenshot of Chengdu Siba's company which is a subsidiary of STAR48. It is now known that STAR48 has carried out a deregistration (registration takedown) process for the Chendu Siba company (成都丝芭文化传媒) after being liquidated in early this December. Liquidation is the liquidation of a company by a liquidator and at the same time the issuance of assets and accounts receivable. It can be concluded that the CGT48 idol group project in Chengdu has been completely cancelled. Previously the CGT48 project had been dormant for two years and it became increasingly unclear after SHY48 and CKG48 were announced to be disbanded. Luckily, a new sister group appeared on SNH48 Group Team Shuffle: IDOLS Ft.
