Choreographer Mary Murphy, who was let go as a judge after the 11th season of “So You Think You Can Dance,” is rejoining for season 14.

Fox announced Thursday that Murphy, who is in her late 50s, will join returning host Cat Deeley and judge Nigel Lythgoe, plus an additional judge to be announced, when the dance competition comes back this summer.

In January 2015, when her option was not renewed, Murphy said in a statement, “I’m very grateful and proud to have been part of such an extraordinary television show. . . . I’m sure there wasn’t a person watching that didn’t know I loved what I did.”

Meanwhile, open auditions for the new season will be held Saturday at the Gelsey Kirkland Academy of Classical Ballet, at 29 Jay Street in Brooklyn, beginning at 7 a.m.
