Yak American Idol Report: Longtime "Idol" Producers Lythgoe and Warwick Will Not Return

In what many expected, longtime friends and producers of “American Idol,” Nigel Lythgoe and Ken Warwick, are reportedly NOT returning to the show’s 13th season. Formal discussions have not begun, but according to a report by THR, the decision is imminent.

Fox continues to come up with ways to reshape and revitalize the one time dominant competition. After Randy Jackson announced his departure for the first time in 12 seasons, fellow judges Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj confirmed their departure as well. The network and production staff recognize the sub-par and difficult season Idol recently underwent. Among the proposed changes, Fox is reportedly considering an all alum panel for the show’s upcoming season. Jennifer Hudson reportedly has a deal in talks for $4.5 Million, however, reports claim the network want to dish out less. There remains a lot uncertain about the show’s upcoming season.

Lythgoe and Warwick have been a part of the show since the show’s inaugural season in 2002. Lythgoe took seasons eight and nine off, but stayed on board with with his other Fox child, So You Think You Can Dance. Fox, Lythgoe and Warwick have yet to comment regarding the report.

The studio names Swede Pers Blankens as the new executive producer, reportedly. He helmed Idol's production over in Sweden, along with other reality TV over in the Scandanvian world.
