NBC has announced it has renewed World of Dance, executive produced and judged by Jennifer Lopez, for a third season.

"World of Dance is a high-energy competition with immeasurable heart, compelling storytelling and unmatched talent," NBC reality chief Paul Telegdy said in a statement.

"With our exceptional judging panel leading the charge and competitors who are the best in what they do, we're thrilled to once again bring viewers the Olympics of dance."

Coming off the show's 2017 premiere season in which French hip-hop duo Les Twins were crowned champions, World of Dance is scheduled to premiere its second season Tuesday, May 29 at 10PM ET/PT, immediately following the debut of America's Got Talent's new edition.

"We set out to make World of Dance a competition series of the highest caliber -- every act that hits the stage gives their all and challenges themselves against the most elite athletes in the world," Jennifer said.

"As an executive producer and judge, I'm constantly reminded of the heart and determination it takes to rise to the challenge and become the best of the best. I can't wait to see the talent that comes across our stage for Season 3."

Jennifer is joined on the panel by singer Ne-Yo and former Dancing with the Stars pro Derek Hough, while Jenna Dewan serves as host.

World of Dance invites individuals, duos, trios and groups from all genres of dance to compete for a $1 million grand prize.

The contestants are handpicked from qualifying events around the country and thousands of online submissions.

Competitors are divided into four divisions: Junior (17 years old and under, 1-4 dancers), Junior Team (17 years old and under, 5-15 dancers), Upper (18 years old and older, 1-4 dancers), Upper Team (18 years old and older, 5-15 dancers).

The World of Dance panel scores the acts based on their performance, technique, choreography, creativity and presentation. There are also five rounds of competition: Qualifiers, Duels, The Cut, Divisional Final and the World Final.
