NBC has extended America’s Got Talent Season 12 renewal with news that judge Simon Cowell has signed a three-season deal to remain on the series.
The renewal takes the reality series through Season 14 in 2019.
“America’s Got Talent is a fantastic and, most importantly, fun show both to work on and to watch NBC have been brilliant partners and the entire team who make this show are one of the best in the world. I’ve loved this past season and look forward to discovering more great talent together in the years to come.”
Added Paul Telegdy, NBC Entertainment’s president of alternative and reality group:
“It was terrific to see Simon in his judge’s chair this past season, bringing his unique expertise and enthusiasm to the show, night after night. His brilliance has made AGT the industry leader that it is today and his ability to evaluate and spot talent is unmatched, so we couldn’t be happier to have him seated at the judge’s table for the next three years.”
Trish Kinane, AGT executive producer and FremantleMedia North America’s president of entertainment programming, commented:
“Simon really understands how to spot talent, but he also knows how to have fun. We are delighted that he will be with us for the next three seasons, helping find the very best talent America has to offer.”
