Stage of American Idol


After just 13 months of end of the smashing hit 15th season of the popular show "American Idol", ABC has confirmed for another new season of the show.

After weeks of rumors and a fierce bidding war, ABC confirmed on Tuesday morning it was rebooting the popular singing competition series. Actually, that didn’t take long. ABC announced the news on “Good Morning America.”

Details on the what the ABC Idol will look like are relatively slim at this time. Its revival news comes with no on-camera talent attached, but that will likely change rather quickly. The network did not say who the judges would be, or name a host. Ryan Seacrest, the longtime host of “American Idol,” joined ABC and Disney’s syndicated morning show, “Live,” last week. Idol questions will be the most pressing on May 16, when the network speaks with reporters and Madison Avenue buyers at its annual upfront presentation.

American Idol is an American singing competition television series created by Simon Fuller, produced by Fremantle Media North America and 19 Entertainment, and distributed by Fremantle Media North America. It began airing on Fox on June 11, 2002, and ended on April 7, 2016. It started off as an addition to the Idols format based on the British series Pop Idol, and became one of the most successful shows in the history of American television. The concept of the series involves discovering recording stars from unsigned singing talents, with the winner determined by the viewers in America through telephones, Internet, and SMS text voting.

Over its last few seasons with its cycled through judges, and rival competition shows like “The Voice”, the show had slowed its momentum likewise the show’s audience collapsed. Fox announced it was ending its “American Idol” run two years ago, and the show’s final episode was in April 2016. Few were surprised when the decision was announced.
