Show Update


'American Idol' Renewed For Season 20

ABC announced today that American Idol has been picked up for its fifth season on the network - and what will be its 20th overall. The good news comes just over a week ahead of the May 23 live finale, which will crown the show's latest singing champion.
The competition series has been a reliable performer for the network since being revived. It was in 2018 that ABC brought American Idol back as a mid-season entry just one year after it was cancelled by its original network, Fox. While the show's ratings aren't what they were during the height of its popularity years ago, the revived edition still draws a respectable audience.
It appears that host Ryan Seacrest and judges Katy Perry, Luke Bryan, and Lionel Richie will all be back during the 2021-2022 season, as they are all featured in a promo looking for the next group of contestants.
