Good news for ‘X Factor’ fans.

FOX has picked up the hit series for a third season.

“I couldn’t be happier about ‘The X Factor’ already being renewed for another season,” said Simon Cowell. “I am so proud of the show and the team who have made it this season. I want to thank our incredible sponsors for their support and creativity, and FOX for going out of their way to do everything they can to make this show a success. Most importantly, I have to personally thank our amazing fans for the support and enthusiasm they have given to ‘The X Factor.’ Our main commitment will always be to find great talent, and let’s not forget, we are now days away from our first live shows. The gloves are off! Expect fireworks!”

“We’re absolutely thrilled that ‘The X Factor’ will be returning to FOX for a third hit season,” said Trish Kinane, President of Entertainment Programming at Fremantle Media North America.

‘The X Factor’ is a Top 5 entertainment program among teens this season.

Due to the rain-delayed MLB NLCS game last week, the highly anticipated conclusion of the “judges’ homes” round of ‘The X Factor’ will air at a special time from 9:30-10:30 p.m. ET Tuesday on Fox 8.

Next week, the Top 16 acts will perform on a special LIVE two-and-a-half hour show, hosted by Khloé Kardashian Odom and Mario Lopez, on Thursday, Nov. 1 (8:00-10:30 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed).
