'American Idol' Producer Nigel Lythgoe Says 'Too Soon' For Reboot

Former American Idol executive producer Nigel Lythgoe is speaking out about the show’s upcoming reboot.

The longtime producer of the reality series thinks it might be too soon to bring back the show, which has been off the air for a little over a year.

“They got their wish, but it feels a little too soon to bring it back,” he told Variety.

Nigel added that he still “loves the show,” but thinks that there should only be a revival “when there is public demand that it come back.”

While Nigel says hasn’t been contacted to return to the show, he added, “I’m delighted for them if they bring it back, and I’m looking forward to seeing it again. Hopefully they find some new angles for Idol.”
