World of Dance is an American reality competition series, hosted by Jenna Dewan and executive produced by Jennifer Lopez. The series features dance performers, including solo acts and larger groups, representing any style of dance, competing for a grand prize of $1 million. The contestants are scored by judges Jennifer Lopez, Ne-Yo, and Derek Hough.
The series' first season premiered on NBC on May 30, 2017, as a complement to America's Got Talent. On June 29, 2017, World of Dance was renewed for a second season, and was renewed for a third in May 2018.
Jennifer Lopez, who executive produces the series and serves as a judge, felt that the series would be a return to her roots; Lopez had achieved early fame as a member of In Living Colors dance crew, The Fly Girls. She explained that dance had been her "first form of artistic expression", and that the series "reminded me of all the reasons why I love dance and why I wanted to do this in the first place".
The series premiere was originally scheduled for May 8, 2017 (as a lead-out for The Voice), but was pushed back to May 30, 2017 to serve as a lead-out for the season premiere of America's Got Talent. On June 29, 2017, NBC renewed the series for a second season, which will premiere on May 29, 2018--once again complimenting the next season of America's Got Talent. In May 2018, prior to its season 2 premiere, World of Dance was renewed for a third season.
