tony-awards-cancelled-renewed-cbsEven though there was no doubt this was happening, the official confirmation is always a good thing. And this comes after the confirmation that Neil Patrick Harris is intended to continue being the host of the ceremony. Therefore CBS renewed Tony Awards contract through 2018. Four more airings in the Eye.

There was no doubt this was happening as the Awards honoring Broadway have been on CBS for 35 years already, and there will be a new edition, hosted by Neil Patrick Harris on June 9th.

“The Tony Awards give viewers across the country the opportunity to experience the excitement of Broadway theater from their very own living rooms,” said Jack Sussman, CBS’ Executive Vice President, Specials, Music and Live Events, in a statement.  “We’re pleased to renew our commitment to the performing arts and look forward to continuing this great and long-standing partnership by bringing the best of Broadway to primetime television for many years to come.”
