Ordered to series last year as network interest in music competitions was rekindled, “The Four” offered a new variation on a classic setup: In the premiere episode, four finalists are selected. Evvie McKinney won the the competition in season one, which ended in February.

Fox renewed the program in February just ahead of the finale for season one. Season two is scheduled to premiere June 7 on Fox Broadcasting.

“The Four” was created by Armoza Formats. It is produced by ITV Entertainment in association with Armoza Formats. David George, Adam Sher, David Eilenberg, Becca Walker, David Friedman, Avi Armoza, Nehama Cohen, and Moshiko Cohen serve as executive producers with Combs producing.
