American idol is being revived for a new season but much like the many singers who have passed across its stage over the years, it’s getting a makeover.
After 15 seasons on Fox, the juggernaut franchise is being resurrected by ABC. The network has a deal with the show’s original producer, FremantleMedia, to bring the singing competition that started it all back to our screens for the 2017-2018 season.
Ben Sherwood, President of Disney-ABC, noted that the show is a perfect fit for the Alphabet’s reality roster in a rhapsodic statement. 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
ABC Entertainment president Channing Dungey even managed to throw a little shade at Fox’s decision to end the show in 2016 during her statement: Judges and a host will be announced at a later date, but it’s probably no coincidence that former Idol host Ryan Seacrest just officially joined the ABC family thanks to his newly announced job as co-host of Live with Kelly and Ryan, he already has approximately 752 jobs, so adding one more should be a breeze.
