American Idol Renewed for Season 4-Will There Be a Judges Shakeup?

American Idol Renewed for Season 4-Will There Be a Judges Shakeup?”

"American Idol" has been renewed for a fourth season at ABC.

The singing contest, which will name this year's victor during the telecast, has been produced remotely since mid-March when the coronavirus pandemic shut down movie and television sets throughout the United States.

"American Idol" named their first remote victor on Sunday night.

The show would typically end with a splashy live finale, but the coronavirus pandemic forced the storied singing competition series to begin filming remote episodes for the first time in its history. Katy Perry, Luke Bryan, and Lionel Richie signed on as judges at the time and have remained through three seasons on the network, along with host Ryan Seacrest, who has remained with the show since its inception.

Performing from their homes, Arthur Gunn, Dillon James, Francisco Martin, Jonny West and Just Sam gave it their all in hopes of winning the top prize.

Bryan and Perry also performed their own songs.

On Sunday, American Idol will be welcoming back some of its brightest stars including Jordin Sparks, Fantasia, Ruben Studdard, Scotty McCreery, Lauren Alaina, Kelly Pickler and Kathrine McPhee alongside this season's top 11.

ABC has not yet disclosed whether Seacrest and the judges have signed on to return for Season 4. Will it be enough to crown her the next American Idol? Executive producers include Fremantle's Trish Kinane, who also serves as showrunner, Jennifer Mullin and Megan Wolflick, with Eli Holzman and Aaron Saidman serving as executive producers for 19 Entertainment. Fremantle is the worldwide distributor.
