American Idol is officially coming to an end in 2016!
Fox announced Monday (May 11) that the fifteenth and final season will premiere January 2016, and that current judges Jennifer Lopez, Keith Urban and Harry Connick, Jr. will all return with it, as will long-running host Ryan Seacrest.
The current season has generated stronger critical favor but only averaged a 2.7 rating among adults 18-49 and 10.7 million viewers on Wednesday nights.
Fox promises the final edition will be “a season-long celebratory event (that will) pay tribute to the past 14 seasons of amazingly talented contestants and the millions of fans who tweeted, texted and championed their Idols.”
