It appears that American Idol will live again…specifically, on ABC. TMZ reports that according to sources, negotiations between the show’s producers and the network are going well to the point that ABC made an offer to pick up the series a week ago.

ABC asked the show’s owners whether the series could be moved to New York City so that Ryan Seacrest, who now lives there, can host. The owners shot down that idea however, and the show will go in in Hollywood. NBC and FOX were previously in talks to pick up the series but those fell through. According to the sources, the plan is to announce the show’s return at the network upfronts.
