Ryan Seacrest said he’s set to have the “American Idol” reboot on ABC, he declared Thursday on “Live With Kelly and Ryan.”
The 42-year-old media identity facilitated the first “American Idol” for 15 seasons – from 2002 to 2016 – when it broadcast on Fox.

“It’s really difficult to articulate what American Idol intends to me,” he said in an announcement.
“I’m so thankful for the show and all the profession and life openings it’s enabled me to involvement.
It’s been an unfathomable voyage from the very first moment. To be made a request to restore this year, at my new home at Disney|ABC, is a respect, if not somewhat strange.
I trust ABC is the ideal home for “Icon,” and I’ve each certainty the show’s armies of fans will love it – particularly “Idol”s” best customs of exhibiting endearing stories, surprising ability disclosure, and, the best part is that making dreams materialize.”
The declaration comes following quite a while of theory on whether Seacrest would sign on to do the show or not, considering he’s as of now got a ton on his plate with his co-facilitating obligations on “Live!” and his morning radio show “On Air with Ryan Seacrest.”
Seacrest at present lives in New York City, and in light of the fact that “Symbol” is recorded in Los Angeles, he would need to stick to a strict timetable that would include flying across the nation on a week by week premise.
“I had said toward the finish of the arrangement, ‘Farewell for the present,’ trusting some place it would return,” he clarified on “Live!”
Seacrest will join Katy Perry, who marked an enormous $25 million contract to be a judge, on the show.
It’s as yet obscure who else will join Perry at the judge’s table, however a lot of names like Lionel Richie and “Icon” alum Carrie Underwood have been tossed around.
