ABC’s Dancing with the Stars has revealed their line-up of professional dancers. However, fans will have to wait to find out the celebrities they’re paired up with for Season 19.
The 12 professional dancers to be featured on the hit show were revealed on ABC’s Good Morning America on Wednesday, confirming reigning champ Maksim Chemerkovskiy’s recent statement that he would not be returning.
People reports fans can breathe a sigh of relief - veterans like Derek Hough, Karina Smirnoff and Cheryl Burke will return to the ballroom.
Mark Ballas, Valentin Chmerkovskiy, Tony Dovolani, Emma Slater, Peta Murgatroyd and Witney Carson also join the line-up, along with newcomers Artem Chigvintsev, Allison Holker and Keoikantse Motsepe.
E! Online points out those who were left off the roster include Sharna Burgess, Henry Byalikov, Tristan MacManus and Tyne Stecklein.
Dancing with the Stars returns Sept. 15 with Erin Andrews and Tom Bergeron as co-hosts. Chmerkovskiy leaves the ballroom with a mirror ball trophy from last season’s win with Meryl Davis.
