Fans of the World of Dance TV show on NBC, shouldn’t have to worry about it being cancelled anytime too soon. During its freshman outing, it earned pretty strong ratings for an unscripted, summertime TV series and received an early second season renewal. Then, a few weeks ahead of its sophomore premiere, NBC renewed World of Dance for season three. Last year, the reality TV series ranked third in terms of both its demo ratings and total viewership, right behind the Tuesday and Wednesday editions of America’s Got Talent, so the Peacock Network’s enthusiasm is understandable. How long will it continue? Will World of Dance be cancelled or renewed beyond its third season? Stay tuned.
An NBC dance competition series, World of Dance is hosted by Jenna Dewan, who also serves as a mentor to the dancers. Meanwhile, Jennifer Lopez, Derek Hough, and Ne-Yo judge 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.
