The winner of this season's So You Think You Can Dance will receive a spot in Fox's upcoming live television production of Rent, airing Sunday, January 27, 2019. The news was announced during Monday's episode of the reality competition by host Cat Deeley.

A reimagining of Puccini's La Bohème, and set in New York City's gritty East Village, Jonathan Larson's Rent tells the story of seven artists struggling to follow their dreams during a time of great social and political turmoil.

Film, television, and theater producer Marc Platt (La La Land, Wicked) will produce alongside Adam Siegel, Julie Larson, Al Larson, and Revolution Studios' Vince Totino, Scott Hemming, and Marla Levine.

Additional information will be released over the next several months.
