NGT48 will be dissolving its current line up and resetting its formation.
Member of the group's two teams, Team NIII and Team G, will hold their final performances at the NGT48 Theater on April 21.
After the performance, the teams will be dissolved. The group will restart with new 1st generation members and trainees.
The reset will not necessarily mean that current members will be excluded from the group's new lineup.
The decision to hit the reset button was made by AKS and NGT48's management team. The parties felt there were not enough members in the group, and that maintaining the current teams had become too difficult.
The shake up is a result of the fallout of the Maho Yamaguchi scandal. The idol was assaulted in December 2018, and the group has been embroiled in scandal over the handling of the incident.
It was uncertain whether Yamaguchi, who is the Team G vice-captain, will participate in the group's final performance, or if she will be included in its new lineup.
