‘The Kelly Clarkson Show’ Set to Move Production to New York City
The Kelly Clarkson Show is set for a major, cross country move. Kelly Clarkson all packed and ready to launch production in New York City. After filming The Kelly Clarkson Show at the Universal Lot since 2019, the show is set to move to 30 Rock.
The Kelly Clarkson Show is Set to Relocate This Fall
It’s no secret that Kelly Clarkson is a fan of bringing her Emmy Award winning talk show to New York City. For those who may have missed it, the show’s premiere week often took place in the Big Apple. According to Variety, it has been confirmed that the talk show is set to move to NBC Studios in New York next season.
In the new season, The Kelly Clarkson Show will take place in iconic studio 6A. This studio has previously been home to Jimmy Fallon, Conan O’Brien, and David Letterman. Studio 6A will be a new, state-of-the-art space, specifically designed for Clarkson’s show. It will also feature a technical facility and support space.
Apparently, the show’s move to New York is due to New York’s Film Tax Credit. For those who don’t know, this was recently signed into law by Gov. Kathy Hochul for 2024. Now, New York will provide incentive to eligible TV productions that relocate to the city. In addition, the new ruling changed the requirements for talk and variety shows. Ahead of the new ruling, the shows had to film for five years in New York. Now, shows can remain in New York City for a minimum of two years.
The Move Was Rumored Earlier This Year
Earlier this year, it was rumored that Clarkson would be moving her show out of California and to New York. At the time, it was said that the program will finish its current season on the Universal lot in Los Angeles before moving to the start of a fifth season next fall.
It was also revealed at this time that Clarkson was reportedly “the one who asked NBCU for the possible move to the east coast.” Apparently, the move would move the celebrity closer to her family.
“It’s nothing against L.A. It’s just hard for me to be in a place that has one season. I love rain, and I love storms. I’m just from a different place,” Clarkson said. “It’s important to love your life. I love work and I love everybody I work with and I love my friends. But geographically speaking, that wouldn’t be my first choice.”
At the moment, we’re unsure if The Kelly Clarkson Show‘s move to New York will effect Clarkson’s role on The Voice, or not. Although many are hoping to see the celebrity remain on the show following Blake Shelton’s retirement, her scheduled could get pretty packed pretty easy, considering she’d be moving coast to coast.
