Well, this is an interesting twist… Nigel Lythgoe revealed via Twitter that Fox has big changes in store for the next season of So You Think You Can Dance.
Lythgoe tweeted:

#FOX have cancelled the results show so I will have to change the format of #SYTYCD. At least we have another season at the end of MAY.”

After the announcement, he added:

Don’t worry #SYTYCD fans. I’m thrilled we have a new series. We’ll do our best to find some great talent starting next week in Atlanta.”


I’m certainly not mad at FOX they have supported #SYTYCD FOR 9 seasons. With the help of Mike Darnell I think we have some great new ideas.”

So, how will the So You Think You Can Dance format be adjusted because of this cancellation? Lythgoe didn’t spell it out, but he did say:

Wonderful support from #SYTYCD fans. Thank you. In order to continue America’s vote, results would have to be given the following week.”

As a fan of So You Think You Can Dance, I hope Fox’s decision doesn’t result in the loss of more viewers and the ultimate cancellation of the series. SYTYCD celebrates dance in an entertaining, fast-paced format and deserves to be around for many more seasons.
