"For the past eight seasons, So You Think You Can Dance has been a huge part of our success. We are excited to bring the series and an incredible set of new dancers back for another fantastic season," Fox reality chief Mike Darnell said in a statement.

The dancer won a cash prize of $250,000 and the cover of November's Dance Spirit magazine. Moore will also be recognized as a Gatorade athlete on gatorade.com and in the beverage's new G Series FIT print campaign.

In addition to So You Think You Can Dance's renewal, Fox has also announced it has picked up MasterChef for a third season.
