Seacrest: "American Idol" Reboot is Very Close


Ryan Seacrest addressed the rumors that ABC might pick up the show for a new run. Now that he's a co-host with Kelly Ripa on Live with Kelly & Ryan, and working at ABC, there's been chatter about a return of the show that made Ryan famous.

And he said it's "very close" to happening. He says that any talk of him hosting hasn't gotten that far, which I'd read as "we're negotiating."

But I don't understand why any network would want to reboot the American Idol franchise so soon. I mean, reboots are cool, but this show feels like it just ended. So how will we miss it if it won't go away?  

UPDATE: It's official, American Idol will return sometime during the 2017-18 TV season
