Could American Idol possibly return in 2018?
According to a source at Entertainment Tonight, the singing competition show may not have seen its final days. The show, which ran for 13 seasons, might actually come back next year.
"If the show comes back, it wouldn't be until 2018," the source said.
NBC and the series’ original network, Fox, are allegedly in a bidding war to bring back the beloved competition.
"There is probably more loyalty to Fox, but at the same time, they canceled the show while it had one of its best seasons ever," says the source.
The future of the show still “to be determined.”
American Idol had to deal with major competition when The Voice premiered in 2011. “It’s never gonna be as sexy as The Voice,” one source, who previously worked on American Idol, shared.
If NBC ends up reviving the show, what does that mean for the network’s own singing competition series?
It will be interesting to see how this all works out.
