Nick Cannon will also return as host.
“We may not have a deal with him yet, but he is part of the show,” Greenblatt confirmed exclusively to TheTVPage.com.
Production is expected to remain in Los Angeles through 2017.
Think you could be the next $1 million act? Information on how to audition is available here.
So why all the success, while other talent competitions are seeing fatigue?
“I think it is fresh every year,” Greenblatt says.
“It is a whole new group of people. We know that it fluctuates every year based on the strength of the talent that we find. Some seasons, if we decline slightly, we look at each other and say, “You know what? The acts weren’t as exciting as we hoped they would be.’”
“This season we have a bunch of acts that we really think are great. And I think Simon is really great. The same thing happened with Howard Stern a few years ago. You reboot these things and you get a little bit of a lift. The fact that it is holding or growing in total viewers is fantastic.”
AMERICA’S GOT TALENT kicked off its first week of live performance shows last week.
Twelve more acts are scheduled to perform tonight, with 7 advancing to the next round.
AMERICA’S GOT TALENT airs Tuesdays and Wednesdays on NBC.
