American Idol Is Really Canceled And Not Coming Back Despite ‘For Now’ Farewell From Seacrest
Sorry American Idol fans: the show is still canceled and FOX has no plans of reviving the show anytime soon – despite the cliffhanger “for now” comment by host Ryan Seacrest after the end of the series finale last Thursday.
Seacrest said: “And one more time – this is so tough – we say to you from Hollywood, goodnight America. For now.”
Fans assumed that FOX had real plans of reviving the show in the future, but Seacrest clarified his comments on Twitter on Friday:
“I didn’t want to say goodbye last night. Thank you for 15 amazing seasons #IdolFinale.”

Well. Wishful thinking from Ryan.
Die-hard fans are probably going to hold on to the “for now” comment for a while, but I think it’s really best to let go already just get surprised if it ever happens. I think Seacrest did the fans a disservice by giving them false hope.
