Ryan Seacrest is all set to take the centerstage again as the host of hit singing reality series American Idol when it returns for its 14th season.
The TV personality has inked a deal with the FOX to return as the host of the long-time singing competition and will announce his participation at the network's presentation on May 12, said The Hollywood Reporter.
Seacrest's contract spans two years. While the show is yet to get a season 15 renewal, Seacrest has been given an option to return to the job by then.
The renewal of American Idol was revealed when Seacrest announced during the show that season 14 audition was officially open.
Season 13's judging panel, which includes Jennifer Lopez, Harry Connick Jr and Keith Urban, are also rumoured to return next year, although an official announcement has yet to be made.
