SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE will return for season 18—with an overhauled judging panel.

Nigel Lythgoe returns to the table, where he will be joined by SYTYCD vet Allison Holker and DANCING WITH THE STARS alum Maksim Chmerkovskiy. Additionally, SYTYCD’s Comfort Fedoke will join the judges for the auditions round. Cat Deeley returns as host.

Season 17’s panel consisted of the late Stephen “tWitch” Boss, JoJo Siwa, and Leah Remini; Remini replaced Matthew Morrison, who was fired midseason due to alleged inappropriate messages to a contestant.) The season wrapped up in Summer 2022.

“SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE is television’s preeminent dance competition, and we are thrilled to bring the beloved show back for an all-new season,” said Allison Wallach, President of Unscripted Programming at FOX Entertainment, in a statement. “Reuniting Cat, Nigel, Allison and Comfort and, welcoming Maksim into the SYTYCD family, is sure to make Season 18 bigger than ever for their legions of fans around the globe.”

According to Fox, “Season 18 will infuse the long-running hit with a new format reflecting the authentic experience of building a successful career in dance, as so many SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE alums have. Each week, contestants will compete in new, intense dance challenges that will give them a real taste of the career, from performing in a music video or a football halftime show to going toe-to-toe on stage with a Broadway performer. In the end, it will be up to the judges to decide their fate. Eliminations will take place weekly, with the Top 3 finalists competing in the season’s spectacular finale, but only one will win the $100,000 grand prize and the highly coveted title of SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE champion.”

“This season will also debut new storytelling elements to further capture the authentic ups and downs experienced by professional dancers. For the first time ever, in addition to the big spectacle dance numbers that SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE has long been famous for, viewers will get a documentary-style inside look at the contestants’ dynamics, following them throughout the competition as they go through their personal and competitive journeys, including the daily struggles, new relationships, personality clashes and more.”

The season will premiere Monday, March 4 at 9/8c.
