So You Think You Can Dance: Fox Anticipates Renewal, With 'Changes'


So You Think You Can Dance may still have some pep in its step.

Despite coming off a low-rated, critically derided Season 12, Fox execs anticipate that the show will go on, in some form.

“We hope [that it’s going to return],” Fox co-chairman/CEO Dana Walden said on Friday at the Television Critics Association winter press tour in Pasadena. “We’re not finished in our conversations with the producers, but we love the show and hope and anticipate that it will be coming back.”

As for whether STYTCD producers have been tasked to fix what some felt got broken in recent seasons, Walden said, “We would see some changes — how significant you perceive them to be is up to you. It won’t fundamentally change the show, it will just give it a little bit of spin.”

SYTYCD‘s most recent cycle — featuring new judges Paula Abdul and Jason Derulo — premiered to 4 million total viewers and a 1.3 rating, but by its finale was pulling just 2.4 mil and a 0.8.
