Fox may have lost American Idol, but it hasn’t given up on singing competition reality shows just yet. Just like Lionsgate hasn’t given up on more Twilight or Hunger Games movies. These are today’s PopBits.

The Four Will Be a Very Different Singing Reality Competition for Fox

Speaking with Variety, Fox’s Rob Wade revealed how its American Idol replacement will be different, including the fact that it will only be 4-8 episodes long, and could premiere in the summer. The Four is conceptually more of an event than a season-long journey, but we’ll have to wait to see just what Fox has in store in the new year.

More Hunger Games and Twilight Movies Could Be Coming Soon

Since both Hunger Games and Twilight franchises concluded their theatrical runs, Lionsgate hasn’t been quite the hit-maker it once was just a few years ago.

It’s worked for Harry Potter, so there’s no reason to think it won’t work with other young adult properties, right?
