‘Dance Again’ diva Jennifer Lopez is going to do just that as reports have it she – alongside fellow judges Ne-Yo, Derek Hough, and hostess Jenna Dewan – will be coming back to NBC for yet another season of the hit reality dance competition, ‘World of Dance.’
The critical and commercial response to the show’s first season (which captured audiences by the millions) was so favorable the network has granted it a season 3 return…ahead of its season 2 premiere!
The series features Jennifer Lopez, Derek Hough, and NE-YO as judges, with Jenna Dewan serving as host and mentor. Lopez also executive produces. Season 2 of the show is set to launch on May 29 immediately following the season premiere of “America’s Got Talent.”
“‘World of Dance’ is a high-energy competition with immeasurable heart, compelling storytelling and unmatched talent,” said Paul Telegdy, president of the alternative and reality group at NBC Entertainment. “With our exceptional judging panel leading the charge and competitors who are the best in what they do, we’re thrilled to once again bring viewers the Olympics of dance.” [source]
