FOX has renewed its new music competition series, THE FOUR: BATTLE FOR STARDOM, for a second season, to premiere this summer.
Rob Wade, President, Alternative Series & Specials, Fox Broadcasting Company, said:
THE FOUR is truly a next-generation show. It has pushed past the boundaries of traditional music competition series by focusing on recording artists in an epic battle to become a superstar. And for the winner, guided by music giants Sean “Diddy” Combs, DJ Khaled, Meghan Trainor and Republic Records, this is just the beginning. We’d like to thank our panel, our ringleader, Fergie, the contestants and our incredible production team for delivering concert-quality shows every week. And we look forward to pushing the boundaries even further in Season Two.
THE FOUR: BATTLE FOR STARDOM is FOX’s highest-rated new unscripted series in nearly four years both among Adults 18-49 and Total Viewers. Season-to-date, the series is averaging a 1.4/5 among Adults 18-49 in most current L+7/L+3 ratings and 4.6 million multi-platform viewers over its first five weeks. Week five posted THE FOUR’s highest ratings yet among A18-49 and Total Viewers, establishing a new season high (2/1/18: 1.5/6 L3, up +15% vs. premiere) and marking a third week of consecutive growth among Adults 18-49 (L3: 1.2 > 1.3 > 1.4 > 1.5) and Total Viewers (L3: 3.6 mil > 3.8 mil > 4.2 mil > 4.3 mil).
The series also is recruiting a younger, more diverse audience than its singing competition counterparts, with a median age of 48 years old (versus 57 for “The Voice”). Additionally, THE FOUR: BATTLE FOR STARDOM is the No. 1 most social new TV series this season with 5.5 million total social interactions.*
