“MTV and I are back together again! Making the Band is coming back bigger, bolder and more cutting edge. MTB on MTV was the pioneer of reality TV. We’re going to bring that supernatural energy back to the format and bring the world it’s next global superstars,” said Diddy in a statement.

“We couldn’t be happier to welcome back the incomparable Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs to his rightful home at MTV. Making the Band was ahead of its time and the ultimate disruptor — fans everywhere have been clamoring for a return and they are in for the biggest, most iconic season yet,” said MTV Entertainment president Nina L.
