After an iconic 7-year run on MTV, the hit TV show Making the Band was cancelled, to the dismay of many fans. One of the shows executive producers Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs took to social media last week seeking to change this. He asked his millions of followers if they were interested in seeing the show come back to television.
The post garnered support from celebrities like Wale, Dwayne Wade, and Seth Rogan. Today (7/16), Diddy announced via Instagram that the show would indeed be coming back to television in 2020.
“MTV and I are back together again!! ‘Making the Band’ is coming back bigger, bolder and more cutting edge. MTB on MTV was the pioneer of reality TV. We’re going to bring that supernatural energy back to the format and bring the world it’s next global superstars.”
Diddy also announced that there would be a global talent search across Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, and other social media platforms. Interested talents can upload their video using the hashtag #MTBCasting. More information on the talent scouting will be announced in the coming weeks.
