Fox has renewed its Emmy-nominated summer reality competition So You Think You Can Dance for a ninth season. The official announcement came today from Mike Darnell, the network’s President of Alternative Entertainment.

“For the past eight seasons, So You Think You Can Dance has been a huge part of our success. We are excited to bring the series and an incredible set of new dancers back for another fantastic season,” Darnell said in a release.
