ABC has announced that Luke Bryan, Katy Perry and Lionel Richie are returning as judges for Season 6 of its American Idol reboot.

Ryan Seacrest will also be back as host when the season premieres in the spring.

"Season 6 auditions kick off Wednesday, Aug. 3, with the return of 'Idol Across America,' the live virtual nationwide search for the next superstar," the network said in a press release on Thursday.

"Auditions take place across all 50 states plus Washington, D.C, and start with the annual First 500 event, where hopefuls can sign up to grab a VIP spot before anyone else."

The singing competition series initially ran for 15 seasons on Fox from 2002 to 2016.

It was canceled, then revived by ABC two years later.
