“We hope it will return,” Fox chairman Dana Walden said on Friday at TCA. “We’re not finished in our conversations with the producers, but we love the show and hope and anticipate that it will be coming back.”
But will the show take a page from the success of the expansion of Fox’s MasterChef with MasterChef Junior and switch to younger dancers?
“We would see some changes — how significant you perceive them to be is up to you,” Walden said. “It won’t fundamentally change the show, it will just give it a little bit of spin.”
I’d heard that SYTYCD would continue in a new incarnation, as So You Think You Can Dance Junior.
Fox also has in development a couples dancing competition shows from former The Voice executive producer Stijn Bakkers.
