'American Idol' revival is officially happening thanks to ABC

That didn’t take long. 

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.

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.”

 “American Idol is a pop-culture staple that left the air too soon,” said Channing Dungey, president of ABC Entertainment. “ABC is the right home to reignite the fan base. We are thrilled viewers will once again share in these inspiring stories of people realizing their dreams.”

Judges and a host will be announced at a later date, but it’s probably no coincidence that 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.
