"The X Factor" is set to air on AXS TV in the US once again, after the cable network renewed the UK series for a second consecutive year. The upcoming 12th season of the ITV reality show is premiering in the autumn, with Olly Murs and Caroline Flack as new hosts plus Simon Cowell back as a judge. The rest of the judging panel will be announced in due course, reported Digital Spy. Each episode of "The X Factor UK" will air on AXS TV within 24 hours after its UK broadcast. Encore episodes will be broadcast directly following AXS TV's premieres. "'The X Factor' UK is a standout series for AXS TV that excels in consistently delivering unforgettable performances from both today's top artists and aspiring vocalists, alike," said AXS TV Senior Vice President of Programming and Development Michele M Dix. "American viewers have embraced this series, as last season's dramatic storylines and eliminations led to significant increases in engagement each week. "We are excited to see what new talent the show will discover this year, and which judges will grace the panel. With Simon Cowell at the helm, we know that we will, once again, have a show that will be strongly supported by our core viewing audience." "The X Factor" will return in the autumn.
