'American Idol' Creator Says Show Is 'For Sure' Coming Back

The series finale of American Idol is set to air this Thursday night, but the show’s creator Simon Fuller says the show will “for sure” be coming back.

“There are loads of ideas being shared and I’m deep in thought about how we can evolve Idol. We debuted at the very beginning of the digital world. So the next generation of Idol will be a lot more interactive, a lot more immersive,” Simon said while discussing the new digital landscape for the entertainment industry with The Hollywood Reporter.

“For me the most exciting thing is we can really now dive deep with all the new technology that’s coming. My head is exploding with opportunities. The next generation of Idol — and Idol will certainly be coming back for sure — will have a youthful glow and it will be pioneering again, just as it was when we first began,” he added.

    If it does come back, and I hope it does, make sure Keith Urban is a judge on it. AI is my favorite show on TV and really going to miss it.

    Speak for yourself, one of the greatest shows on TV. It still gets millions more viewers than some of the shows they are keeping Mr. Gomes.

    I’m guessing they will change the format and re-vamp the series after 5-10 years of being off the air. It’ll gain a whole new generation of fans.
