Music fans and aspiring artists alike can rejoice now that FOX’s hit talent show, The Four: Battle for Stardom has gotten a Season 2 release date.
The team of DJ Khaled, Sean “Diddy” Combs, Meghan Trainor and on-screen host Fergie will return Thursday, June 7. Former judge Charlie Walk, who left the show mid-way through the first season amid allegations of sexual harassment, will not be returning.
Not only did the show become FOX’s highest-rated new unscripted series in nearly four years (among adults 18-49 and total viewers) it was the number one most social new TV series this season with a whopping 5.5 million total social interactions.
Last season, Memphis singer Evvie McKinney made history as the first-ever champion. Her prize? A career mentorship from all the panelists. According to The Four: Battle for Stardom, the budding singer is currently in the studio recording her first single, which will be boosted thanks to her feature as an iHeartRadio “On The Verge” artist — another residual for being a champion.
The Four: Battle for Stardom was created by Armoza Formats and is produced by ITV Entertainment in association with Armoza Formats. David George, Adam Sher, David Eilenberg, Becca Walker, David Friedman, Avi Armoza, Nehama Cohen and Moshiko Cohen are executive producers.
Diddy also serves as a producer for the series.
