‘So You Think You Can Dance’ Renewed for Season 13 on Fox with New Format

Fox has renewed “So You Think You Can Dance” for Season 13, which will shake up the format with a younger crop of contestants and an All-Star twist.

This season will see dancers between the ages of 8-13, who are skilled in various dance styles, such as contemporary, tap, hip-hop, ballroom, animation or breaking, paired up with All-Stars to compete for the title of America’s Favorite Dancer.

Season 13 will premiere Monday, May 30 at 8 p.m. on Fox, with Nigel Lythgoe, Paula Abdul and Jason Derulo returning to judge, and Cat Deeley once again hosting.

“We are so happy to bring back the award-winning ‘So You Think You Can Dance’ for a 13th season this summer with a brand-new format,” said David Madden, President of Entertainment at Fox. “The series has captivated its loyal fan base for over a decade, inspiring young dancers across the country and transforming the face of dance in every medium – and we’re so excited to feature a young and talented new group of performers on the series.”

“Through the Dizzy Feet Foundation, I’ve had the great privilege of working with incredible young talent who will eventually shape the future of dance in this country,” said co-creator and executive producer Nigel Lythgoe. “By evolving the ‘So You Think You Can Dance’ format this season, we can showcase the very best junior dancers out there and open up the world of dance to a whole new generation.”
