Fox's The Four is coming back for a second season

We’re about to get more of The Four.

Fox has renewed the music competition series The Four: Battle for Stardom for a second season. The new episodes will air this summer.

The show, which wraps its first season tonight, has been Fox’s highest-rated unscripted series in nearly four years among adults 18-49, even though the actual rating — 1.4 — doesn’t seem that impressive. The network also says it attracted 4.6 million “multi-platform viewers” over its first five weeks. Supposedly, it boasts a younger and diverse audience and has a median age of 48 compared to the average 57-year-old person who tuned into The Voice. So there’s … that?

Fergie hosts the show that features four recording artists from all music genres attempting to maintain their “seat” in front of panel of experts: Sean “Diddy” Combs, DJ Khaled, and Meghan Trainor. The panel previously included Republic Chief Charlie Walk but he was suspended last month — and ultimately will not attend tonight’s finale — after two women came forward with claims of inappropriate conduct by him.

Walk released this statement: Out of respect for the contestants, my fellow judges and everyone involved with the show, I have made the decision not to attend the finale of The Four. I do not want my presence to be a distraction. Needless to say this is very upsetting. Although I continue to support the ‘Me Too’ movement, there has been an extreme rush to judgment against me in this particular case which is unfair and inconsistent with anything that even actually happened. I welcome any investigation so that in short order these unfounded and hurtful accusations can be put to rest.”

Fox is expected to announce who season 2’s panel will be in the coming month.
