Well, dance friends, this is not the "So You Think You Can Dance" news we want to be bringing you today, but here we are: Unfortunately, Fox has officially called off Season 17 of our beloved dance show, due to COVID-19–related health and safety concerns. According to the network's official statement, "While we were looking forward to its return this summer, we cannot meet the standards we've set for viewers and contestants in light of the show's unique format, intricate production schedule and limited time."
We're super bummed about the prospect of a "SYT"-less summer, but the safety of the dancers, judges, and everyone involved clearly comes first. And while we may have to wait longer than expected to board the hot tamale train, there's still plenty of incredible dancing to watch online and on TV this summer, from "World of Dance" to the world of TikTok. In the meantime, take a walk down memory lane with some of our favorite past "SYTYCD" covers below.
