ABC confirmed Tuesday that it is bringing "American Idol" back in 2018, just two years after it ended a 15-season run on Fox.

Now that the American Idol reboot is set to land at ABC, the chances of Ryan Seacrest returning as host seem even greater as he is already working for the network!

"ABC's passion and enthusiasm make them a flawless home for American Idol", said Cecile Frot-Coutaz, CEO, FremantleMedia Group. "We are thrilled viewers will once again share in these inspiring stories of people realising their dreams".
