Last year the World of Dance TV show on NBC was renewed for a third season, before the sophomore cycle even began, then the show proceeded to drop off sharply in the Nielsen ratings. Now that it is back for season three, without Jenna Dewan, can it regain its firm foot and ensure another whirl with the Peacock Network? Will World of Dance be cancelled or renewed for season four? Stay tuned. *Status update below.
An NBC dance competition series, the third season of World of Dance is hosted by Scott Evans, with Jennifer Lopez, Derek Hough, and Ne-Yo judging the performances. The series showcases dancers competing for a grand prize of $1,000,000. Elite solo dancers, partners, and full dance crews compete against each other in multiple categories of dance, including hip-hop, tap, ballet, break dancing, ballroom dancing, and stomping.
