“American Idol” could be coming back, if NBC has its way!
Variety reports that the network and FremantleMedia are in discussions to reboot the singing competition, which was on the air for 15 seasons on Fox. There is a possibility that the network’s hit show “The Voice” could be cut from two seasons to one a year in order to integrate “American Idol” into the programming slate.
Last year, “American Idol” host Ryan Seacrest opened up about the show’s future at the TCA Winter Press Tour, saying, "When you’ve got a franchise that has this kind of heritage and you’ve got a franchise that generates X amount of millions of people, if it sustains, does that mean it’s the end? I’m not so sure.”
We’ll have to wait and see if “American Idol” returns!
