'American Idol' to make comeback on ABC TV in 2018

Lamar Ellis | 10 May, 2017, 01:57

Fox generally premiered each new season in January.

ABC announced the returning of American Idol on "Good Morning America", although there wasn't any extra information given pertaining to who the judges would be and etc. "ABC is the right home to reignite the fan base".

"All of the intense ‎speculation surrounding the comeback of "American Idol" demonstrates just how popular and powerful this brand remains", Peter Hurwitz, chief executive of Core Media, which produces "Idol", said in a statement. Now, ABC will bring the talent-based competition back for the 2017-18 season. Original host Ryan Seacrest is the new co-host of ABC's syndicated show Live with Kelly, and has relocated to New York City for that job. On Monday, Ripa asked Seacrest on air about the reports that "Idol" would return.

A return for "Idol" had been rumored for months, and Fremantle reportedly entertained offers from NBC and Fox. I had no idea that it was being talked about to come here until late last week. "I say "yes" and bow to you". I mean, it's been a year and most people thought American Idol should have been cancelled years before that! "No, I don't know about that part yet".

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

The raid also resulted in the deaths of several other high ranking ISIS-K leaders and 35 ISIS-K fighters, added the statement . Hasib is believed to have been behind March's attack on a military hospital in Kabul, killing more than 30 people .

TMZ previously reported that ABC wanted original series host Ryan Seacrest to return for the revival.

"I said at the end of the series, 'Goodbye for now, ' hoping it would come back", Seacrest told her. He was a constant, but not a standout presence on "Idol" - which is why he was so good at the job, The Post's Emily Yahr wrote a year ago.

As far as what the revived "American Idol" will look like, details are still scant, though ABC promises the show will be "bigger, bolder and better-than-ever".

The show that dominated television in the 2000s and minted stars like Carrie Underwood, Jennifer Hudson and Kelly Clarkson will be back sometime during the next TV season.

Cecile Frot-Coutaz, CEO, FremantleMedia Group, said, "ABC's passion and enthusiasm make them a ideal home for 'American Idol.' We are excited to be partnering with them to discover the next generation of talented artists".
