We may not have seen the last of American Idol after all! The show that introduced us to Jennifer Hudson, Fantasia, and Ruben Studdard was cancelled by FOX after 15 seasons, but now comes word that the show may returning to NBC.
American Idol creator Simon Fuller says that he was always confident that the show would return.
“There will no doubt be another format or refinement or elevation of the format. Now I can actually revamp it and come up with a new version. And we can look back on 15 seasons and think of some legitimate ways to allow people to enjoy them again, maybe adding another dimension to it,” he said. “The next generation of Idol — and Idol will certainly be coming back for sure — will have a youthful glow and it will be pioneering again, just as it was when we first began.”
There is no word yet on exactly when the show will return or who will be hosting or judging.
