Simon Cowell announced this morning via his official Twitter account that the United States X Factor has been renewed for a third season.

Said Cowell to his followers:

Fox president of altnerative programming Mike Darnell added in a press release, “This season, Simon [Cowell] and the producers of The X Factor took an already strong show and made it absolutely fantastic. The format changes are working, the contestants are unbelievably talented, and Britney and Demi – alongside Simon and L.A – have brought an incredibly fun new chemistry to the judges’ panel that our fans really love. We feel great about the show and I’m thrilled to bring it back next year for season three.”

Season two of The X Factor currently features L.A. Reid, Demi Lovato, Britney Spears, and Cowell as judges (pictured above). There’s no word yet on who exactly will return, but we suspect that Cowell and Reid are the safest bets.

Last week Fox announced that Mario Lopez and Khloe Kardashian will host the live episodes of The X Factor which begin Thursday, November 1.
