“World of Dance” Season 3 To Air on Sundays…in the Winter!

Well, this is an interesting and bold move – NBC has decided to air Season 3 right after football ends, and on Sundays to boot!! Check this out from Variety:

With season two of Jennifer Lopez’s competition series “World of Dance” set to premiere this month, NBC announced that season three will debut at midseason in early 2019 after NFL football season ends, airing on Sundays at 8-10 p.m.

“We loved season one,” Greenblatt said, adding that the network is “excited about what that can do in-season next year.”

Airing the show at mid-season and for TWO hours is quite a show of confidence for all involved. Congratulations!!

I'm a nerd and proud of it. Two degrees in geology also means I love BEER. :-) I'm also a Derek lover - proud of that too. So don't scream at those of us on this site and call us a bunch of "biased Derek-lovers" - it's just ME. :-) It may sound like I hate DWTS at times, but really, I'm just a snarky nitpicker from way back. And I'm cynical and jaded too. But I do love DWTS. :-)

Television Academy to Hold Panel for World of Dance

They do these for newer TV shows, particularly if they are successful. Sounds like you can get tickets!! The words that intrigue me most?? “Special Performance”  – wow. 🙂

“World of Dance” Season 2 First Promo And More Show Details

The first World Of Dance Season 2 teaser!! You can watch it below. Also below are more details from Entertainment Weekly. Be sure to read the link for more.

The series, which features judges Jennifer Lopez, Ne-Yo, and Derek Hough, as well as host/mentor Jenna Dewan Tatum, is set to return to NBC on Tuesday, May 29, and the winning dancers once again will take home a $1 million prize. Of course, there may be a few more hoops this time around as well.

The new season will include 16 episodes — as opposed to the 10 from its freshman outing — and the hand-picked dancers will compete in four divisions instead of last year’s three. They are: Junior (17 years old and under, 1-4 dancers), Junior Team (17 years old and under, 5-15 dancers), Upper (18 years old and older, 1-4 dancers), and Upper Team ((18 years old and older, 5-15 dancers). In other words, expect a bunch more insanely talented kids vying for the big bucks.
