‘American Idol’ Officially Returning… on ABC!
ABC has officially announced that “American Idol” is returning on the air after it was canceled 13 months ago by FOX.
The network announced its formal acquisition of Idol early Tuesday morning, ahead of the coming days’ renewals and series pick-ups and next week’s 2017-18 season scheduling announcements.
“American Idol on ABC…that has a nice ring to it,” said Ben Sherwood, co-chairman of Disney Media Networks and president of Disney-ABC. “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.”
I am so excited! I love ABC and I love American Idol!
