Channel 7 Is Bringing Back Australian Idol In 2022
Just when you thought you had seen the last of competitive reality TV shows involving singing in Australia, Channel 7 pulls a fast one.
The network has revealed it will be bringing Australian Idol back to our screens in 2022 and has announced two shows will instead get the chop.
After 12 long years of not going through the highs and lows of the legendary singing competition, Idol is back and will be bigger than ever.
Angus Ross, Seven's Director of Programming told 7NEWS.com.au: "Idol is the granddaddy of them all. The biggest show in the world comes to Seven in 2022, and we know Australians are going to love it.
"We can't wait to bring Idol back to Australian audiences in 2022, putting our prime time content line-up even further ahead of the competition.
"We're home to the biggest franchises in television at Seven, and Idol is the biggest of them all. Bring on 2022."

The show has birthed the careers of Guy Sebastian, Shannon Noll, Jessica Mauboy, Ricki-Lee, Casey Donovan, Anthony Callea, Matt Corby, Rob Mills, Wes Carr, Stan Walker, Paulini and Damien Leith.
It's hoped the new season will find the next big star awaiting to achieve stardom.
Fremantle Asia Pacific Chief Executive Officer, Chris Oliver-Taylor added: "Idol is renowned for launching global music artists. That's what we've done here in Australia and across the world. We can't wait to break the next superstar Idols on Seven in 2022."
All eyes will be on who will judge the new look but naturally everyone wants the OG stars like Ian 'Dicko' Dickson, Mark Holden, and Marcia Hines. Fans will also be calling for Osher Günsberg and James Matheson to host it.
Sadly though, in order for the programme to be fit in the already packed schedule, some shows have been dumped.
