'American Idol' revival broadcast schedule announced by ABC

By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 01/08/2018 

American Idol's revival is going to air twice a week when the series premieres in mid-March, and those particular nights have been revealed.

As previously announced, American Idol's sixteenth season will debut with a two-hour episode on Sunday, March 11 at 8PM ET/PT on ABC.

And now, the network has confirmed speculation that American Idol will air on Sunday and Monday nights starting March 12 through April 23.

However, beginning on April 30, the Monday episodes will be replaced by Dancing with the Stars' mini all-athletes edition.

American Idol will feature Ryan Seacrest as host as well as Katy Perry, Lionel Richie and Luke Bryan as judges.

The nationwide search for the next American Idol kicked off in August 2017, with auditions having taken place in 23 cities ranging from Portland, OR, to Orlando, FL.

Hopefuls also had the opportunity to submit audition videos online through different social-media platforms using the official hashtag #TheNextIdol, and the show racked in over 300,000 posts.

Also, for the first time in American Idol history, hopefuls could audition through a livestream platform.

Auditions in front of the judging panel commenced in early October of last year.

All of American Idol's 15 previous seasons aired on Fox, and Seacrest served as the host of every edition with different judges coming and going.

But ABC announced in May 2017 it would air the revival of the show, just about one year after Trent Harmon was crowned the Season 15 winner over La'Porsha Renae, who finished as the runner-up, in April 2016. Harmon was the eighth male winner of the show in nine years.
