Facebook/AmericanIdolA promotional image for the 2016 season of "American Idol" which is used as a cover photo of the show's official Facebook page. Now, according to Deadline, Fox has also thrown its hat in the ring with an offer to the production company.
As of this article being written, it is unconfirmed if Ryan Seacrest would actually be able to return to the show, which he had hosted every season in its previous incarnation.

Whether it was picking sides in the competition itself, or watching the drama among the judges - particularly Cowell and Paula Abdul - play out on television, American Idol was a show that demanded to be watched live. While NBC originally was the first to eye its return, sources tell THR that the network is no longer in the running. American Idol went off the air in 2016 after the conclusion of its fifteenth season on FOX.
Nothing is clean cut at the minute when it comes to the American Idol revival. "It was just, stars aligned for me to really be screwed emotionally that night". "I just don't see a world where Idol doesn't resurface", he said. "It's so amusing to me that everybody was like, 'It was remarkable!' Well, crying on national television isn't really my idea of a good time", she joked. And while the iHeartRadio gig might not affect Seacrest's availability for Idol, ABC's rumored plans for the American Idol reboot to run on Mondays opposite The Voice could pose a problem.
