Nick Cannon has also agreed to return as host, the piece notes. The four judges are Stern, Heidi Klum, Mel B and Howie Mandel.
"Howard, Heidi, Mel and Howie have proven that they are a dynamic quartet of judges who aren’t afraid to share their opinions, while at the same time creating fireworks of their own," Paul Telegdy, president of alternative and late-night programming at NBC Entertainment, said.
The show was the top summer reality series this year, with the number of total viewers up 6% from the previous year, the piece adds.
