‘American Idol’ back on television after one year off air


Yipee! Your favourite music competition reality TV show,  American Idol, is back after one year off air.

The show which went off the air after 15 seasons on Fox because of falling ratings, is coming back to television on ABC.

ABC studios announced the deal on today’s episode of the “Good Morning America” show. The studio said it has reached an agreement with FremantleMedia to bring America Idol back.

The show will be scheduled sometime during the 2017-2018 television season, possibly on Sunday nights. However, it is unknown whether Ryan Seacrest who is the original host of the show will return as the host.

ABC did not name a host or say who the judges would be either.

Fox announced it was ending the “American Idol” run two years ago, and the final episode was in April 2016.
