So You Think You Can Dance Scores Season 9

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.

SYTYCD earned eight 2011 Emmy nominations, including Outstanding Reality Competition Series and Outstanding Host For A Reality Or Reality-competition Program (for Cat Deeley), winning three statuettes (two as co-winners for Best Choreography, and one for Best Lighting Design).

    Woohoo, still my favorite reality series. Some seasons are better than others for sure but I would rather see this series on the air than any other reality series out there.

    YES — this is the ONLY reality show I will watch and watch faithfully! I can’t wait for the new season — I liked the addition of the all stars to the top ten, nice twist Nigel! Keep up the good work! and Cat Deeley was robbed at the Emmys!

    I was elated to learn that I get to see another season of this great show. I was getting worried as so many of the other sytycd franchises were being cut and this news was a little late. Anyhow, wahoo……I am so looking forward to watching more wonderful dancing. Phew. Good decision Fox……I love this show. :)

    LOL and yet I agree DUH…..Cat deserves an Emmy. Maybe this will be her season to get it?
