Official: Diddy & MTV Confirm ‘Making The Band’ Reboot / Set 2020 Debut

Published: Monday 15th Jul 2019 by Sam

It’s official! ‘Making The Band’ will be returning to MTV.

Full story below…

Diddy confirmed the news moments ago via an IGTV video.

The news comes almost a week after both he and the cable network teased a revival of the talent search, which – during its initial run – birthed the careers of Danity Kane, Day26, and Da Band. 

In the announcement clip, Diddy revealed that a global casting call begins today across all major social media platforms. The end goal? To discover the next big superstar act.

Hopefuls are to use the #MTBCasting hashtag to submit their entries.

The show will make its debut on MTV in 2020.

Speking on the series’ return, Nina L. Diaz, MTV’s President of Entertainment said in a statement:

“We couldn’t be happier to welcome back the incomparable Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs to his rightful home at MTV. “’Making the Band’ was ahead of its time and the ultimate disruptor – fans everywhere have been clamoring for a return and they are in for the biggest, most iconic season yet.”


While some may scoff at the thought of “yet another reboot,” we’re at the very least keen to give this a chance.

The original MTB run was all sorts of iconic and was very much the warts-and-all format we favor when it comes to showcasing how the music industry truly works.

It also presents the opportunity for Diddy to stage a do-over and dispel the notion that he doesn’t do right by his acts by actually…doing right by his acts. [Because that initial implosion of Danity Kane wasn’t only their fault. We’ll leave it at that]

We also have so many questions: will Ms. Boom-Kack Laurieann Gibson be back? Which label will the act be signed to? Any involvement from ‘Making The Band’ alumni? Roll on 2020!

      you have to work and use the computer and internet, and if you can do that and dedicate some time each day then you can do this with no problem.
      I have been working with this for a month and have made over $2,000 already. let me know if you need more help.

    Making The Band made 3 decent groups but they all pale in comparison to the TV show which was TOP Quality Entertainment ? I must have watched every single episode


    Why go international? Why not just for American artists.

      Yeah, if it ain’t no boom kack and some cuts in the first 10 mins, then they can keep the whole reboot.

    Yeah they should have the coaches The Voice style and bring them all back. I really don’t want to see DK again until it’s all 5 members there.
