Is Ryan Seacrest set to return to American Idol?

It seems like Ryan Seacrest is currently the most in-demand presenter in America after rumours circulated that he is set to return to American Idol. The 42-year-old also started a new job hosting Live With Kelly and Ryan this week. It has been reported that ABC are in talks to broadcast the show and they see Ryan as crucial to programme and are keen to get him on board.

The producers are even said to be thinking of a way for him to film both his current commitments in New York and the American Idol shows in LA at the same time. TMZ reported that ABC is so keen to get Ryan back that they looked into the option of filming the show in New York. However, Fremantle who produces the programme insisted that filming remained in California.

At the moment ABC has not confirmed anything or contacted Seacrest about returning to the hit TV show. If the broadcaster does land the rights to the show it is thought that they will announce it at the Upfronts which are being held in two weeks time. It is thought that the show will return next year – probably in March. No judges have been approached but it is thought that producers would like to see some old favourites return with the addition of some new faces.
