There’s a rumor going around Hollywood that Disney’s ABC TV network is in late-stage negotiations to become the new home to The “American Idol” TV series.
The show originally aired on Fox, but the production company Freemantle Media North America and CORE Media Group are considering a revival of the series and ABC is the expected home for the show. Both Fox and NBC were also being considered. “American Idol”s run on Fox ended in 2016, crowning its last winner, Trent Harmon in April.
If the show does return it will likely look very different from a talent perspective. Idol Judges Simon Cowell and Jennifer Lopez are under contract with NBC while Idol host Ryan Seacrest just took a regular hosting job on Live with Kelly & Ryan, which is based in New York.
