Ryan Seacrest announced this morning on Live With Kelly and Ryan that ABC's upcoming American Idol reboot will finally premiere on March 11, 2018.
"So we have some new news today. It has been settled that the American Idol return will premiere Sunday, March 11, 8 p.m. on ABC," Seacrest said. "All I have to say is, considering I work in New York Monday through Friday, thank God it's on Sunday night in Los Angeles."
Seacrest then told co-host Kelly Ripa, "You're gonna have to deal with me on Monday on no sleep on a regular basis."
Besides Seacrest returning as host, the new Idol will feature judges Katy Perry, Luke Bryan and Lionel Richie.
