Renewed: American Idol

The revived American Idol has been renewed for a fourth season -but the third season is currently absent from Australian screens.

While the 2019 season with judges Katy Perry, Luke Bryan and Lionel Richie screened on Foxtel, it has not proceeded with the 2020 series.

ABC is yet to confirm if the judges, along with host Ryan Seacrest, will return for a fourth season.

The renewal will bring the total number of seasons to 19, having previously aired between 2002-2016.

Meanwhile a lockdown finale has just declared a 2020 winner.

The final included Katy Perry performing her new single Daisies, Luke Bryan singing One Margarita and Lionel Richie performing We are the World joined by this year’s Idol family.

  1. Was a great series this year but Arthur was robbed.
    Time for 9 or 10 to look at Australian Idol again. The US has shown you can do a shorter version that lasts about the same number of eps as the Voice

    • No big winners though since its been on ABC. I still think there needs to be a longer finals time to get more attached to the contestants.
