All three 'American Idol' judges - Jennifer Lopez, Steven Tyler and Randy Jackson - will return to the show, with auditions starting ''in a couple of weeks''.
The three judges - who appeared for the first time together on the show this year - have signed up to return for another season, according to the show's executive producer Nigel Lythgoe.
Speaking on Ryan Seacrest's radio show, he said: "I am delighted to say that all three judges, along with the brilliant host of 'American Idol' are back for the next season."
Ryan - who presents the singing talent show - confirmed auditions will be starting in the near future, but the three would not be seen on television until January.
In a series of tweets, he said: "Auditions with all three start in a couple wks.(sic)"
Asked when the show would be back, he said: "January. this show is a year long process!(sic)"#
Last month Jennifer revealed she did not know if she would return and was "on the fence" about it.
She said: "I don't know. I haven't been forced to make a decision and I'm glad about that because, honestly, I'm very on the fence about it."
