The franchise that gave us Da Band, Day26, Danity Kane, and Donnie Klang is back!

Last week, Diddy toyed with the possibility of bringing the show back and it looks like all of our prayers have been answered.

MTV and Diddy announced Monday that Making the Band will return in 2020.

Diddy shared the news on Instagram along with a global casting call for talent, “I’ve made my decision… #MakingTheBand is coming back!!! This will be a global talent search, upload your auditions now using #MTBcasting!!”

“Sometimes you live in your own bubble and you may not really know the importance of something you created,” Diddy added in the video. “And with Making the Band, myself and MTV created something special. We empowered young talent from all over the world. No matter what hood they was from, no matter what background they was from, everybody got a chance.”

Nina L. Diaz, MTV’s President of Entertainment, also released a statement celebrating the news, calling the series “ahead of its time and the ultimate disruptor.”

Rising stars, 18 and over, hoping for their big break can share their talents on social media using the hashtag #MTBcasting. More casting opportunities will be announced in the coming weeks.
