NBC’s ‘World of Dance’ Renewed for Season 3

Pick-Up Comes Ahead of Season 2 This Summer

Optimistic NBC has granted a third season renewal to summer dance competition series “World of Dance” ahead of its second season. The series, which finished last summer as the most-watched new summer alternative series in a decade, features dancers showcasing their talents and competing for a million-dollar grand prize. Executive producer Jennifer Lopez leads a judging team that includes Derek Hough, Ne-Yo and host/mentor Jenna Dewan.

“We set out to make ‘World of Dance’ a competition series of the highest caliber — every act that hits the stage gives their all and challenges themselves against the most elite athletes in the world,” said Jennifer Lopez in a statement. “As an executive producer and judge, I’m constantly reminded of the heart and determination it takes to rise to the challenge and become the best of the best. I can’t wait to see the talent that comes across our stage for Season 3.”
