ABC’s Good Morning America confirmed the news this morning that indeed, American Idol is returning to television on ABC.
Last week, we reported that ABC was very close to closing the deal with Fremantle Media to bring the show back, after both NBC and Fox failed to reach a negotiation in a bidding war.
GMA hosts Robin Roberts and George Stephanopoulos announced this morning that the show will be revived and bigger and better than ever.
Here’s what we know so far:
- There is no confirmation that Ryan Seacrest will be back as host.
- The show will likely be back on TV in March of 2018.
- American Idol is likely to run on Sunday nights.
- There is not yet confirmation on who the judges will be.
There will be further updates on the judges, host, etc. in the coming months.
Let’s hope that the “new and improved” American Idol will indeed, be THAT… new and improved.
