Despite the fact that the first season of the rebooted “American Idol” isn’t even over, another season is officially headed our way— as if we had any doubt.
“We knew that American Idol on ABC would unleash an opportunity for singers from all walks of life to realize their dreams and that these incredible contestants would have America rooting for their success,” said Channing Dungey, president, ABC Entertainment in a statement. “I am thrilled that Katy [Perry], Luke [Bryan], Lionel [Richie] and Ryan [Seacrest] will be back to once again embark on this Idol journey with us to discover the next crop of inspiring talent.”
Luke Bryan posted a video on his Instagram sharing the news, thanking fans for tuning in and keeping the show going. “Big news– American Idol is coming back for season 2! It’s all because of you guys, the music fans out there, for bringing it back,” he said in the video.
