ABC Announces Third Season Renewal For American Idol

Posted by at 1:58 pm on May 13, 2019

The American Idol revival has been renewed for a third season at ABC. The show’s second season — at least on its new home network — finale will air Sunday, May 19.

Offers have been made for host Ryan Seacrest and judges Katy Perry, Lionel Richie and Luke Bryan to return to the FremantleMedia North America-produced series. While there is no word yet on if any or all of them will be back for the show’s third season, ABC is hoping for the team’s return.The second season of the “Idol” revival, which premiered at midseason, is currently averaging a 1.7 rating in the advertiser-coveted adults 18-49 demographic and 8.9 million viewers, while Monday nights put up a 1.5 rating and 8.3 million viewers, according to the “most current” data from Nielsen, which includes a week’s worth of delayed viewing where available.
That Sunday night state makes American Idol the second-highest rated unscripted series on ABC behind The Bachelor.

Idol is not the first show to be renewed by ABC for the 2019-2020 season ahead of the network’s upfront presentation to advertisers Tuesday, with Dancing with the Stars and The Bachelor both having been renewed, for Seasons 28 and 24, respectively.
