Dancing with the Stars is nearing its next season. After concluding its 30th season, it was announced that DWTS would be moving from ABC to Disney+ where it will premiere exclusively in the U.S. and Canada, the first live series to debut on the streaming service.
Any themes for the season and the stars and pro dancers hitting the floor this fall haven’t been announced, but we do know who will be returning. Len Goodman, Carrie Ann Inaba, Bruno Tonioli, and Derek Hough will return to show as judges, and Tyra Banks will continue on as host and executive producer of the show. DWTS season 19 Mirrorball Champion and current America’s Home Videos host Alfonso Ribeiro will also be joining the show as co-host.
“Dancing with the Stars has been such an important part of my life for so many years, and I am ecstatic to officially re-join this tight-knit family as co-host,” said Alfonso in a press release. “Tyra and I have a longstanding friendship that I hope will resonate with all of the fans at home as we kick off this new season on Disney+.”
“I’ve known Alfonso since I was 19 years old and he always puts a smile on my face whenever I see him,” Tyra said of her new co-host. “Having such a fun-loving, longtime friend as co-host warms my heart. Plus, he’s won the competition before, so he knows exactly what the stars are going through. Bantering back and forth with him live is going to be so much fun!”
Dancing with the Stars comes to its new home on Disney+ this fall. A date has not yet been announced.
