Will Ryan Seacrest Return For American Idol 2014?

Ryan Seacrest on American Idol

With all the pending firings and departures from American Idol by judges and production it’s worth asking, “will Ryan Seacrest be back next year on American Idol 2014?” According to his contract with FOX, yes he will.

This year host Ryan Seacrest signed a two-year, 30 million dollar deal that locks him in to appearing on the Idol stage through at least the 2014 season. Where things go from there is yet to be decided, but as producers have indicated, American Idol just wouldn’t be the same without him.

Next year Season 13 will bring about a lot of format and casting changes that hope to revitalize the aging series, but at least for now we know we can expect to see host Ryan Seacrest for at least one more year with American Idol 2014.

Are you glad to hear Ryan will be back as host next season? Would the show be the same without him or should it even go on if that familiar face didn’t greet us each week at the start of the show? Share your thoughts!
