Wait, American Idol Will Be Back For More Seasons?

April 5, 2016
I thought we had a deal. America said, "Come on you guys, this show has lost its magic, move on!"

Then the American Idol people said, "Okay fine, but only after 6 more seasons." The "Farewell Season" finale airs this week and now the show's creator says it will be back.

Simon Fuller 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.”

He explained that they could never mess with the show too much when it was doing well, and now he'll have the chance to blow it up and start over. That could mean a new host, new judges, new format, new technologies, etc. I'm trying to keep an open mind, but it is just a very tiny opening.
