The a capella competition that produces talented groups such as Committed and Pentatonix will be back for a fourth season after two-year hiatus.
"The Sing-Off", the a cappella reality competition series that aired on NBC, is coming back for a fourth season. The Peacock has agreed to bring it back after the show wrapped up its third-season run in November 2011 to modest ratings. Producer Deke Sharon confirmed the news himself, saying, "I am happily able to confirm that casting is going on. The show is back!"
Confirmation of the show's return can also be seen in its official website. With a big banner that reads, "The Ultimate A Capella Competition Returns to NBC", the site displays official audition schedule, listing four cities including Chicago, Nashville, L.A. and New York.
The creator of "The Voice" Mark Burnett is on board to work on the season 4. The first audition will begin on April 27 while the premiere date for the new season is not set yet. Details regarding the host and the judging panel are currently not available.
"The Sing-Off" ran for three seasons, from 2009 to 2011. NBC canceled the Nick Lachey-hosted show after the third season earned lackluster ratings in fall 2011. Its recent winner Pentatonix has already made great achievements in music industry. Their debut album, "PTX Volume 1", charted at #14 on the Billboard 200 Charts and their Christmas album, "PTXmas", charted at #1 on the iTunes Holiday Albums chart.
