Harry Connick Jr., who came onto the series’ current season following a shakeup that saw the departure of judges Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj, confirmed Wednesday that he will be back to work when the recently announced 14th season premieres.

Connick made the announcement on Wednesday’s edition of “Live With Kelly and Michael.”

“Congratulations,” co-host Michael Strahan said of the “Idol” renewal. “Are you going to come back?”

“I’ll be back,” Connick stated.

It has not yet been announced whether Jennifer Lopez, who returned to the show as a judge this season, and Keith Urban will be back for the 14th season. However, host Ryan Seacrest has re-upped with the show for another season, with an option to return for another season after that.
