“We couldn’t be happier to welcome back the incomparable Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs to his rightful home at MTV,” said Nina L. Diaz, MTV’s President of Entertainment.  “’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.”

“Making The Band” first aired on ABC IN 2000 and was centered around the pop group O-Town. Diddy’s “Making The Band 2” first aired in 2002 on MTV and centered the hip-hop group Da Band comprised of Sara Stokes, Freddy P, Chopper, Ness, Babs, and the now-iconic Dylan Dilinjah.

Groups Danity Kane and Day26 were also spawned from the series.

For the new season, Diddy called for submissions across all major social media platforms, including Instagram, YouTube and Twitter, by uploading a video submission using #MTBCasting.
