Sixth season of So You Think You Can Dance casting, will air this fall

The fifth season of Fox’s So You Think You Can Dance debuts Thursday, and one week later, the network will start casting for the series’ sixth season, which will air this fall. That’s a first for the competition, which typically airs in the summer in the shadow created by American Idol fatigue.

The fall version may actually take American Idol‘s timeslots and be paired with the new high school glee club drama Glee, which will be previewed following American Idol tomorrow night. The sixth season is “speculated to follow a Tuesday-Wednesday scheduling pattern similar to ‘Idol,’ with the performance show airing Tuesday 8 p.m. slot, and the results show airing Wednesdays at 8 with Glee following it, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Open call auditions start May 28 in Boston and move on to Atlanta, Los Angeles, Salt Lake City, and other cities.
