"We're delighted to have Jillian Reynolds and Ace Young join us as the host and co-host for Season 4 of American Idol Extra," said Fox Reality Channel programming executive Bob Boden.

The American Idol companion series' fourth season will premiere Thursday, March 26 at 7PM ET/PT, and each episode will include "the first exclusive sit-down interview" with that week's eliminated eighth-season finalist.

In addition, American Idol Extra's fourth season will be the first to film from the same stage as the Fox mega-hit.

"American Idol has become a cornerstone of American pop-culture and we are proud to be the exclusive cable and satellite network to broadcast straight from the Idol stage," said Boden.

Young and Reynolds will replace American Idol Extra third-season hosts JD Roberto, former Idol sixth-season finalist Gina Glocksen and former fourth-season finalist Constantine Maroulis.

While Roberto and Glocksen will no longer be involved with the show, Maroulis will return as a "special field correspondent," according to Fox Reality Channel.

American Idol Extra will air in the Thursdays at 7PM and 10PM ET/PT timeslots on Fox Reality Channel in the nine weeks leading to Idol's eighth-season finale on Fox.

American Idol Extra is produced by Idol producers 19 Entertainment and FremantleMedia, and is not-to-be-confused with TV Guide Channel's American Idol Rewind companion series.
