*While BET has been quiet about the fate of its gospel competition series “Sunday Best,” judge Yolanda Adams has given fans a chance to relax.

“We have not been cancelled so thank the lord for that!” she told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “It’s one of those things that people look forward to.”

Adams says the show will return for its ninth season in 2017, although BET has yet to make it official.

The gospel star said the reason “Sunday Best” didn’t air this year was host Kirk Franklin’s busy schedule.
