'American Idol' Returning to TV, Revived By ABC!

19 Mai, 2017, 21:44 | Author: Lucrece Courtet

The host and judges will be announced later, ABC said Tuesday morning.

Idol's 15-year run was all on Fox, but the show will air on ABC in 2018, confirming rumors that were first reported by TMZ last week and picked up by All Access.

It's official: ABC has revived American Idol.

"American Idol on ABC...that has a nice ring to it", said Ben Sherwood, co-chairman of Disney Media Networks and president of Disney-ABC.

Cecile said: "ABC's passion and enthusiasm make them a ideal home for "American Idol". We are thrilled viewers will once again share in these inspiring stories of people realising their dreams". There's been speculation that he would return as host, though it would be logistically tough to pull off as "Live" tapes in NY and "Idol's" producers want it to remain in Los Angeles. Since its inception, it has introduced singer superstars like Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood, and Jennifer Hudson.

American Idol aired on Fox from 2002-2016, with FremantleMedia North America and 19 Entertainment producing the program.

Hosts and judges have not yet been secured for the show's revival, although Yahoo reports that Ryan Seacrest doesn't know if he's able to host it.

According to Entertainment Weekly, ABC won out the rights to AI over Fox and NBC to mark the series' return. American Idol is officially returning to TV, thanks to ABC.

ABC also highlighted the Disney connection in announcing it had the show.

She may not want to get too excited, though; "Idol" filmed in Los Angeles in the later rounds, while "Live" shoots in New York City.

Will Seacrest be returning, too?

Seacrest is already a big part of ABC, hosting "Dick Clark's Rockin' New Year's Eve" and now co-hosting "Live!" with Kelly Ripa.
