American Idol is still in hot demand!

As we've reported, the possibility of a reboot of the classic singing competition has been discussed between networks like NBC and FOX – and now we're hearing ABC has entered the bidding war!

According to TMZ, the network contacted Fremantle (the company that produces AI) last week to place an offer to buy the hit show in hopes of a March 2018 premiere.

This is especially interesting considering ABC knew Ryan Seacrest would be joining Kelly Ripa in New York… and now they're also wanting him to come back to finding the Kelly Clarksons of the world!

Seacrest… back IN?!

Since Fremantle says it's a "no go" for production to move to NYC, we really don't know how Ryan would be able to do both the talk show and the reality show. But who knows — it's Ryan.

Word is Fremantle is going back to negotiations with Core, the co-owner of American Idol, to figure out next steps.

Would U like to see AI come back to the small screen?? SOUND OFF in the comments!
