Could Kelly Clarkson be returning to American Idol? TV Guide reports ABC wants the singer for their upcoming reboot of the popular singing series.
This week, ABC announced they are officially reviving American Idol for a new season. Producers of the show have been trying to get the series back on the air ever since it ended on FOX last year after a 15-season run. Previously, NBC was in talks to reboot the show but a deal didn’t work out.
Apparently, ABC is interested in bringing Kelly Clarkson back to American Idol as a judge. The singer won season one of the series back in 2002. Clarkson is reportedly trying to clear her schedule, but the singer has not publicly responded to the report.
ABC’s American Idol reboot is set to premiere during the 2017-2018 season. According to Variety, the network has committed to about 40 hours of programming for the new season. That’s a lot of schedule to clear.
