Earlier, we reported producers of the singing competition show were in talks with NBC for a possible revival. The series ended last year on FOX after 15 seasons.
This week, American Idol‘s production companies, 19 Entertainment and FremantleMedia Limited, reached an agreement in court with the “intention to re-launch American Idol on American television by seeking a new license agreement with a broadcaster, network or other platform subject to various terms and conditions.”
According to THR, FremantleMedia has been pitching an American Idol reboot to NBC and required a deal with the other production company, 19 Entertainment, in order to proceed. The latter filed for bankruptcy after the series ended last April. Now that the two have reached a settlement in court, plans for a re-launch can continue.
What do you think? Are you a fan of American Idol? Would you watch a revival?
