Multimedia personality Bobby Bones also will return as in-house mentor when the TV talent show starts up again in the spring.

The network did not say if host Ryan Seacrest would be back.

"We couldn't be more excited for Katy, Luke, Lionel and Bobby to continue in their roles as American Idol searches for the next great music star, with more live episodes and exciting, new creative elements coming this season," Karey Burke, president of ABC Entertainment, said in a statement.

The show ran for 15 seasons on Fox, then moved in 2018 to ABC where it has aired two seasons.
