American Idol executive producers Nigel Lythgoe and Ken Warwick will reportedly both be replaced as part of next season's shakeup of the Fox reality singing competition.
Fox declined comment on Lythgoe and Warwick's alleged departures, TheWrap reported.
The producers' exits will reportedly be part of a bigger shakeup, which will also include a new judging panel. However, decisions regarding the thirteenth season's new judges are being delayed until Fox finds a replacement for departing reality chief Mike Darnell, who recently announced he will leave the network at the end of June.
Lythgoe and Warwick launched American Idol together during its inaugural season. Lythgoe left the Fox reality singing competition in 2008 but returned in 2010.
