The Four: Battle for Stardom has been renewed for Season 2! But instead of returning at midseason in 2019 it will be back on our TV screens….this summer. Hm. And I wonder if The Four airing in the summer means So You Think You Can Dance is officially cancelled. I have so many questions!
Check out the press announcement below.
FOX has renewed its new music competition series, The Four: Battle for Stardom, for a second season, to premiere this summer, it was announced today by Rob Wade, President, Alternative Series & Specials, Fox Broadcasting Company.
“The Four is truly a next-generation show,” said Wade. “It has pushed past the boundaries of traditional music competition series by focusing on recording artists in an epic battle to become a superstar. And for the winner, guided by music giants Sean “Diddy” Combs, DJ Khaled, Meghan Trainor and Republic Records, this is just the beginning. We’d like to thank our panel, our ringleader, Fergie, the contestants and our incredible production team for delivering concert-quality shows every week. And we look forward to pushing the boundaries even further in Season Two.”
