looks like Simon has given up on the X Factor in the UK. most likely no chance for it coming back in the US since it was less successful here. at least we got 5H as a group and their solo careers from it. :unsure:

Simon Cowell is to take full control of “Got Talent” and “The X Factor” producer Syco Entertainment after agreeing to buy out Sony Music Entertainment’s stake in the joint venture.

Cowell is personally buying out the stake and the move will give him sole ownership of the entertainment company. It is the result of a buyback option maintained by Cowell through their joint-venture renewals and a mutual negotiation process.

Syco analysis: The low-key demise of Simon Cowell's former label

Syco analysis: The low-key demise of Simon Cowell's former label

It’s all over for Syco as a frontline label at Sony Music, Music Week has confirmed.

In July, label founder Simon Cowell struck a deal with Sony to buy the music major’s stake in his Syco Entertainment company. Cowell took sole ownership of the TV brands, including The X Factor and Britain’s Got Talent, while Sony retained sole ownership of Syco Music.

At the time, Music Week revealed that the company faced an uncertain future within Sony. Now we have confirmed that Syco MD Tyler Brown has left Sony. Another senior label exec, Tom Hoare – who had only joined Syco last November as head of digitalhas now rejoined PIAS in a similar role.

Sony UK refused to comment but sources confirmed that all Syco Music employees and artists have now either been redeployed within Sony Music or have left the company.

It’s a low-key end for a label which dominated British pop for almost two decades with a seemingly endless flow of talent show artists such as One Direction and Little Mix, and won the hotly-contested Record Company award at the Music Week Awards as recently as 2017. The label is at No.14 on Music Week’s year-to-date AES All Albums market share charts, with 1.0%.

The majority of Syco catalogue recordings will likely now be handled by its sister label RCA, which also took on Little Mix when the group left Syco in 2018 following a bust-up between Syco and the group’s management company, Modest Management. Little Mix's own TV talent show, The Search, debuted at the weekend.

The roster had been further run down since Little Mix left, with one of Syco's few remaining stars, Tokio Myers, recently declaring himself “a free agent” on social media because Syco was "no longer in operation".

It now remains to be seen whether Cowell – who is currently recovering from back surgery following a bike accident – has any aspirations to get back into the music biz. Artists from his TV shows will now be free to sign to any label, with Sony no longer enjoying first refusal. But the newly-independent Syco Entertainment looks likely to initially concentrate on rebooting its TV shows, with The X Factor taking a break from ITV this year.

Reshet’s “The X Factor Israel” will return to screens across Israel next year with a brand new but familiar face on the judging panel: Simon Cowell.

The veteran producer and reality TV judge will be joining the fourth season of the show, which last aired in Israel in January 2018. Cowell created the original version of “The X Factor” in the U.K., and served as a judge for its first seven seasons, before departing to launch the U.S. version of the show, which is now produced in 56 territories.

“Over the years we have discovered incredible talents from around the world through the ‘X Factor’ format,” said Cowell. “I can barely wait to see what the Israelis have to offer.”

In a statement, Reshet 13 emphasized that “this is the first time Simon Cowell is coming to judge in a country outside of the U.S. and Great Britain. This is a huge achievement for Israeli TV.”

The network said Cowell will help select the judges who will serve alongside him on the show. A spokeswoman for the network said filming is expected to begin within a few months.

“Cowell is one of the biggest and most influential music figures in the world,” said Reshet, “and his participation as a judge in the Israeli format provides an opportunity for international exposure for Israeli singers.”

Cowell underwent back surgery earlier this year after a bike accident at his home in California, and was replaced as a host on “America’s Got Talent” during his recovery. This is one of his first new work commitments since the surgery; he is also reportedly working on a new singing competition series for CBS titled “50 States to Stardom.”

It seems like X Factor was cancelled by ITV for good after 17 years. Can't say I didn't see this coming 👀, at the very least the show gave a platform to some of the biggest names on the music industry (the way how they treated them though, that's a different thing 💀)

 

Gonna miss the format of this show though not gonna lie, among all the singing shows, this show's format is one of the most brutal yet the most fun to watch (especially the 6 chair challenge lol)

SIMON COWELL 'PLANNING X FACTOR REBOOT' FOR 2023

Simon Cowell is reportedly planning to revive The X Factor for a new series next year.

 

 

Cowell is to meet with production company bosses and channel execs over the next few months, according to the Daily Star. He is to meet with a 'string of channels', meaning the net is being cast wider than just ITV.

 

 

A source told Daily Star On Sunday: "It has been decided that the time if right to bring X Factor back. It's really exciting. Everyone who will be working on the new series can't wait to get started."

 

A source added: "Things are in the early stages at the moment. But the wheels are definitely in motion. It is hoped that production will begin at the end of the year... Producers want to recapture the magic the show had when it was first on TV...

 

 

"The focus will be on the competition element of the show, rather than the razzle dazzle."

 

The X Factor last aired on ITV in 2019, where it ended with a Celebrity series followed by X Factor: The Band. ITV last year said it had no plans for future series.

 

 

TV Zone has reached out to ITV and Fremantle (previous channel and production company) for comment.

I hope, maybe the fall? but even the start of next year maybe, they will have to work around the Voice schedule too

 

Simon Cowell, 63, has confirmed exclusively confirmed with The U.S. Sun the global series The X Factor is officially returning to American audiences.

 

Simon has secured a deal with NBC network to bring The X Factor back over to the U.S. after a nearly ten-year hiatus.

 

 

Originally launched in the UK, Simon's hit competition show has produced global success stories like One Direction, Little Mix and James Arthur.

Simon revealed the exciting announcement while promoting NBC's new series AGT: All Stars, which starts on January 2, 2023.

 

He shared: "I have a saying in life that's always go where you've got the best invitation - and NBC has offered us to make the show here."

the fall would make more sense since Idol is on during the early part of the year as well. also that is when it aired before.

They have to make Camila a mentor/judge  right?

most shows have never had former contestants as judges that were from their series . The Voice have had coaches from Idol as well as Camila and Niall from The X Factor. they never picked one of their own. it would make sense i agree though.Camila did great on The Voice.

 

article here speculates that X Factor could replace The Voice for one season a year for each.
