American Idol will be back for a 15th season and final season.
Fox announced Monday that it had renewed the aging singing competition, and the current judges roster of Jennifer Lopez, Keith Urban and Harry Connick, Jr. will all return with it -- as will long-running host Ryan Seacrest.
The network did not mince words in its announcement of the renewal, confirming No. 15 would be the last for the one-time behemoth and referring to it as a "season-long celebratory event." It's been expected for some time that this renewal would be Idol's last, as the show has seen both its ratings and relevance fade in an increasingly crowded landscape. The current season has generated stronger critical favor but only averaged a 2.7 rating among adults 18-49 and 10.7 million viewers on Wednesday nights.
