The reality show “World of Dance” has made its audience dance every day throughout its four seasons. But will they get another chance to dance? Will we see some more talents after the fourth season? These are some common queries, and we are here to answer all of them.
Produced by Jennifer Lopez, World of Dance is an American reality dance show. The reality show features dancers from all around the globe who perform in groups or solo. The cash prize for the winner is $ 1million, and they are collectively judged and scored by Jenifer Lopez herself, Derek Hough, and Ne-Yo.
On NBC, the reality show was initially released on May 30, 2017. It received positive reviews from audiences and was renewed for a second season. The second season was released a year later, i.e., on May 29, 2018. The show’s third season was released on February 26, 2019, and the fourth and final season on May 26, 2020. However, we have bad news for the show’s fans: the show was canceled after its fourth season in March 2021.
World of Dance Season 5 Release Date
After concluding its fourth season, the dance reality show was curiously not present in the new NBC summer lineup shows. According to some official reports, the main reason for the show’s cancellation was its low ratings and viewership in the recently concluded season. In addition, there was some shocking loss in viewership as it had only 4 million viewers compared to its previous season’s viewership.
World Dance Season 1 had an amazing viewership of 7.7 million views, and a shocking loss of interest might have forced the channel not to continue with the show. Naturally, some show fans are disappointed after this news and are still hoping for a miracle. Nevertheless, we should not lose hope as there are chances of the reality show’s return. If any other channel or the makers own the show’s rights show some interest, there is a possibility of returning the show on the screen. Stay tuned for more updates on this!
World of Dance Season 5 Cast
As it is a dance reality show, it doesn’t have any fixed lead roles to play the role of any character. The eligible candidates participate in the tournament either solo or in groups and compete against each other. The winner gets a trophy and a whopping cash prize of $ 1 million. The candidates are judged and scored by three judges: Jennifer Lopez (a producer of reality shows), Derek Hough, and Ne-Yo. If the show returns by any chance for another season, then it is expected these three judges will return to score and judge the contestants.
World of Dance Season 5 Renewal Status
NBC has not officially renewed the show for its fifth season. The show’s fourth season concluded in August 2020, and after that, there were no updates on this. However, it was not present in NBC’s shows renewal list and was officially canceled in March 2021.
The fourth season of World of Dance lost many audiences aged 18-40 years. The numbers play a vital role in renewing any show for another season. The producer and one of the show judges, Jenifer Lopez, revealed in an interview that it was becoming tough to cope with the show that lacked an audience. The fourth season was also shot without an audience due to the Covid-19 Pandemic protocols. Reality shows like these are large budget events with many cash prizes also at stake.
The audience and viewership play a very vital role in this scenario. Although the show has an overall rating of 7/10 on IMDB, it was affected largely due to the pandemic. Some of the show’s loyal fans are disappointed by this decision and are still waiting for a miracle. Well, they need not worry as there are still some hopes for it to return if any other channel owns the rights. We will keep you updated about any development regarding the show; till then, you can enjoy the previous season exclusively on NBC.
