Katy, 38, Lionel Richie, 74, and Luke Bryan, 47, will continue their run as judges with Ryan Seacrest, 48, as host, the show announced earlier this week.
Idol shared the news on their official Instagram page, encouraging aspiring artists to audition for the upcoming seventh season.
But the comments section flooded with negative comments from viewers unhappy with the decision to bring Katy back.
Some cried that the Fireworks singer’s return was detrimental to her career, claiming it took time away from performing.
One person begged: @katyperry stop this bulls**t ! We fed up ! You are megastar, don’t waste your career here !! God damn it !!!”
Another wrote: “Katy Perry we lost you failed us again…where album mam.”
A third echoed: “Pls we need new music @katyperry seventh season in a row? please STOP we are begging you.”
And a fourth added: “Katy told us we get what we deserve … so we deserve another season of American Idol … I would be happier about a world tour.”
Others called Katy’s return to the show “career-killing” while pleading for her to release new music.
Fans recently shared their fears that the Teenage Dream singer was done making music after she shared an Instagram post to promote Michael J. Woodward’s latest single, Face.
Many of her followers ignored the promotion and begged her to release new hits of her own.
They said the same thing when Katy promoted another artist’s song last week.
The star has yet to respond to fans’ concerns.
Katy’s most recent album, Smile, was released in 2020.
Since then, the pop singer has focused on her shoe collection and De Soi, a non-alcoholic sparkling drink company she co-founded.
In her personal life, she’s raising her two-year-old daughter, Daisy, with her fiancé Orlando Bloom, 46.
The happy family recently went on a getaway with friends to the Gulf of Saint-Tropez, French Riviera, France.
Photos captured the couple spending time on a luxurious yacht and enjoying various water activities.
At one point, Katy was seen riding with their toddler daughter on a jetski and solo on a paddle board controlled by an above-water bicycle.
Rumors previously swirled that Katy was planning to quit her Idol gig to spend more time with her family.
She’s also been receiving a lot of criticism over her behavior on the show, leading many viewers calling for her to be fired.
