'American Idol' is returning, ABC confirms

13 Mai 2017

American Idol originally ran for 15 seasons on FOX in the US, earning 67 Emmy nominations and nine wins.

The network and "Idol's" producers, FremantleMedia North America and CORE Media Group, have finalized an agreement to revive the show, which ended a 15-season run on FOX past year.

After weeks of rumors, ABC finally made it official Tuesday morning: The network is reviving American Idol next season. "We are thrilled viewers will once again share in these inspiring stories of people realizing their dreams", ABC Entertainment president Channing Dungey stated.

"Seacrest, who was based in Los Angeles during the American Idol run, said he will live in NY during the week and then fly back home to Los Angeles for the weekends", the network states.

Ryan Seacrest seemed interested in returning as a host but admitted that he might be too busy to do it.

This news also comes just a week after Ryan Seacrest was announced as the new co-host for Live! alongside Kelly Ripa, also on ABC, which calls into question whether the long-time host will return.

On Monday, ABC announced that it has secured the rights to bring back "American Idol".

Ryan Seacrest has not yet confirmed or denied if he'll be hosting the American Idol reboot, but he's definitely aware that the show is officially returning to TV.

Idol was cancelled last spring by Fox after 15 seasons.

FreemantleMedia North America and Core Media Group's 19 Entertainment are producing the new version of "Idol". "I don't know about that part yet".

NBC, which is now home to "The Voice", was also reportedly interested in picking up "Idol" at one point. "I don't know if I can host it...", he claimed on the morning talk show (watch below at 5:00).
