May 9 (UPI) -- The singing competition series American Idol is poised to return to television in 2018, but, when it does, it will be on a new network.
"Grab your microphones, #AmericanIdol is officially back! Coming to #ABC in 2018! Watch this space for more details," the official American Idol web page said Tuesday.
There is no word yet on who will serve as the show's judges and host.
Seacrest just took over as co-host of Live! with Kelly in New York. The morning program is also broadcast on ABC.
"Is 'American Idol' Returning with Ryan Seacrest?" the Live! Twitter account asked as news broke of the Idol return.
"Trust me, I have just as many questions as you do :)" Seacrest tweeted in reply.
