ABC announces revival of American Idol next season

ABC announces revival of American Idol next season

After being off the air for just over a year, American Idol is officially returning to TV, this time on ABC. The worst-rated seasons of American Idol would rank second on ABC, behind (depending on the measurement) The Bachelor and Dancing with the Stars.

ABC says that the show's cast - host, judges, etc - will be announced at some point down the road, with longtime host Ryan Seacrest reportedly in preliminary talks to reprise his role.

ABC Entertainment president Channing Dungey said: "American Idol is a pop-culture staple that left the air too soon".

"American Idol" is making a comeback after a almost two-year break but it will be moving to its new home in ABC.

"Man, 'member American Idol?" tweeted Ian Fortey (@IanFortey). The show will be scheduled sometime during the 2017-2018 television season, possibly on Sunday nights.

ABC has in the extended corporate family Idol host Ryan Seacrest, who just was named co-host and executive producer of the syndicated Live With Kelly & Ryan, produced by WABC-TV and distributed by Disney/ABC.

American Idol's popularity had indeed dropped sharply in the years since its all-time peak in 2006.

"American Idol" has produced stars such as Carrie Underwood, Kelly Clarkson, Jennifer Hudson, Adam Lambert, Jordin Sparks, Chris Daughtry, Fantasia Barrino, and Ruben Studdard, to name a few.

It's official! After days of speculation ABC has closed the deal to be the new home of American Idol. "And I said, 'Well that's kind of good to know since I work here!' You know?"

The question now is will Ryan Seacrest return as host? Thus, American Idol is coming back.

While Clarkson's staying tight-lipped for now, Kelly has admitted in the past that she'd be open to joining the judging panel but joked that she thinks people are "over" the format.

"I don't know about that part yet, we haven't gotten that far", he said, but noted his new job's parent company would make the gig easier.
