American Idol may not have seen its last days!
A source close to the long-running singing-competition reality show, which turned off the mics last year after 13 seasons, could be finding new life next year, noting, "If the show comes back, it wouldn't be until 2018."
As for reports of a potential bidding war between NBC and the series' original network, Fox, for the revival, the source says, "There is probably more loyalty to Fox, but at the same time, they canceled the show while it had one of its best seasons ever."
Meanwhile, a separate source tells ET that “an [American Idol] reboot is [to be determined]."
The hypothetical American Idol hosts would likely earn less than the star-studded Voice coaches. Not to mention, new dad Adam Levine might want a little more time off time to spend with his 6-month-old daughter, Dusty Rose!
Watch the video below to relive Simon Cowell's surprise American Idol finale appearance.
