An announcement for Zinn's Villains and moderators are yet to be determined although auditions are took place from November 2020 until April 2023. Luka Runecraft reprised his role as a Red Team villain and Louis Durant reprised his role as a Blue Team villain.

It was the series' first season produced by ABC Fantasy Television Stations that ABC O&O's would revive Vote for the Girls in May 2020 for a thirteenth season.[1]


In late 2020, a report that Aeverine Zinn Digital Media Group was in talks to revive the show for ABC Fantasy Television Stations or for its original syndicator, NoSirGifts.[2] A dispute between Aeverine Zinn Digital Media Group and IdolForums derailed these plans. Later, ABC announced that it had acquired the rights to the series, and that Vote for the Girls would return for the 2022–23 television season.[3][4][5]

On April 19, 2023, in a Facebook post by Karly Jameson it was revealed that Vote for the Girls was confirmed to return after she launched a petition in May 2021. Ava Zinn followed up in a Twitter post saying, "Ending Vote for the Girls in May 2021 is something I regret ever doing and thanks to Karly's (Jameson) petition, I'm happy to bring the show back!"

In an Instagram post by Ava Zinn, it was revealed that Vote for the Girls would officially return on April 7, 2024.
