The reboot trend continues!

We knew Diddy was up to something when he posted a video pondering if he should bring his hit "Making The Band" series back to television. We can't lie, the show totally revolutionized reality television.

Now, it's official.

Today, Diddy announced he's teaming up with MTV again for a reboot of his iconic music competition series, "Making The Band" to discover the next breakout superstars. And the revival will be making its premiere 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," the Hip Hop mogul said in a press release.

“Making the Band” first premiered on MTV in 2002 with Combs at the helm. The series quickly became a breakthrough concept in music and television that chronicled the real-life drama and intimate journeys of chart-topping musical acts Danity Kane, Day26, Da Band and Donnie Klang. Under Combs’ tutelage, MTV’s “Making the Band” changed the game for the music-competition genre, creating some of the most memorable and buzzed about moments in popular culture.

A global casting call begins today where artists looking for their big break can audition for the show. Interested candidates should upload a video submission using #MTBCasting.Casting opportunities will be announced in the coming weeks. Contestants must be at least 18 years of age and be able to comply with the eligibility requirements and all rules.

MTV is also bringing on music performance app Smule to launch the “Making the Band” campaign, a first-of-its-kind feature offering fans a curated playlist of songs to choose from to create video auditions that can be shared across social media.
