Lionel, Katy and Luke have been judges since 2018, when the show went from airing on FOX to ABC. Ryan has been hosting since day one, but fans weren’t sure if he would return after he landed the coveted Wheel of Fortune host spot when Pat Sajak announced his retirement earlier this summer.
Katy was also a huge question mark, or so we thought after rumors started swirling that she wanted to “quit” the show, with reports claiming she didn’t like the way producers were portraying her to viewers.
The show’s fans were thrilled with the news that their favorites would be returning. “Yesss! Great judges,” one person wrote. “So excited for Season 7 and the judges,” said another.
And they were pleased about Katy’s return. “Yesssss!!!!!!! I am so happy Katy is coming back,” one person said. “Katy 😍,” said another. “I love Katy and am happy she’s back! She makes me entertaining and I love how they all interact,” someone else wrote.
According to the post, season 22 will return in the spring of 2024. In the meantime, auditions are happening now!
