The show that dominated ratings for most of its early years is singing its last song this season.
As announced in FOX’s 2015-2016 schedule press release, American Idol will begin its 15th and final season this January. Now, we know how much FOX likes their reboots – The X-Files is back this coming season, after all – but for now, it will be the end.
FOX describes the final season as “a season-long celebratory event” and host Ryan Seacrest as well as judges Jennifer Lopez, Keith Urban and Harry Connick, Jr. will all be back, “as they search for the final Idol superstar and pay tribute to the past 14 seasons of amazingly talented contestants and the millions of fans who tweeted, texted and championed their Idols.”
No word yet on if anyone is calling Dunkleman.
