Fox orders fifth So You Think You Can Dance

So You Think You Can Dance 5 will air next summer, as Fox has renewed its top-rated summer series. The show’s two episodes are in the top five among viewers 18 to 49, making the renewal unsurprising.

In a press release, which notes those ratings, Fox executive Mike Darnell said, “We’re delighted to have DANCE back for a fifth season next year. FOX is very lucky to have television’s preeminent performance competitions in AMERICAN IDOL and SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE, and it’s no coincidence that creator and executive producer Simon Fuller and executive producer and judge Nigel Lythgoe have been a part of both these successes.”

The fourth season concludes this week with two-hour episodes on both Wednesday and Thursday.
