‘The Four’ Renewed For Season Two
Fox has renewed music competition series “The Four: Battle for Stardom.” Season 2 is set to premiere on the broadcast network this summer. Rob Wade, president, alternative series and specials, Fox Broadcasting Company, confirmed the news in a statement:
‘The Four’ is truly a next-generation show. It has pushed past the boundaries of traditional music competition series by focusing on recording artists in an epic battle to become a superstar. And for the winner, guided by music giants Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs, DJ Khaled, Meghan Trainor, and Republic Records, this is just the beginning. We’d like to thank our panel, our ringleader, Fergie, the contestants and our incredible production team for delivering concert-quality shows every week. And we look forward to pushing the boundaries even further in Season Two.
“The Four” is Fox’s most-watched new unscripted series in four years in the 18-49 demo — where it is averaging a 1.4 rating according to Nielsen “most current” numbers, a mix for seven- and three-day data. Republic Records president Charlie Walk began the season as one of the show’s four judges alongside Combs, DJ Khaled, and Trainor, but was suspended last week. He now faces allegations against him of sexual misconduct. His replacement has not been announced.
