As E! News reports, American Idol will be back for the season 2017-2018. ABC will take over the production from Fox and bring the show back on TV screens.
We still don’t know who would be the judges. As Amy Robach said on Good Morning America, where the news was originally announced, this will be decided at a later date.
Ben Sherwood, co-chairman at Disney Media Networks and president, Disney|ABC, shared a statement:
“American Idol on ABC…that has a nice ring to it. Idol is an entertainment icon, and now it will air where it belongs, in ABC’s lineup of addictive fan favorites alongside Dancing with the Stars and The Bachelor. America, get ready for the return of a bigger, bolder and better-than-ever Idol.”
