It is official and confirmed that American Idol will return to television in 2018.

Word has it that there are some major changes in store for the program, including networks. TMZ reported last week that after their 15-year run on Fox which ended in 2016, the show will air on ABC in 2018.

Good Morning America also confirmed the news with Robin Roberts saying, “Very exciting announcement … we can reveal right here for the first time that ABC is bringing American Idol back!”

The show has launched careers for a number of performing artist in the competition such as:  Carrie Underwood, Kelly Clarkson, Scotty McCreery, Kellie Pickler and others.

No news yet who will host or who will be the judges in the new season of American Idol when it returns, but I'm sure we will find out soon enough.
