Idol Officially Renewed for Season 21, Staying on ABC For Now


Recommended Posts



ABC touted the ratings success of Idol, calling it its number one show this season in total viewers, and it’s up 15% over last season among adult 18-49 after 35 days of multiplatform viewing, according to the network.


The renewal comes at an important time for unscripted series on ABC after Deadline revealed that its venerable dancing competition Dancing with the Stars will move to Disney+ from next season – making Idol an even more crucial format for the network. There had been rumors that Idol too may also move to streaming, but Disney is now tuning up for more songs on its linear network.

Those rumors about it moving to Disney+ were just stupid people speculating. It was never even slightly hinted at by ABC or the show runners. 

Exactly. That was never even a thing, just random comments from people online lmao.
