Dancing With the Stars is (almost) back!
The hit reality show is returning to ABC for Season 24 on Monday, March 20 — and we couldn’t be more excited! Though the full cast won’t be announced until tomorrow morning on Good Morning America, we do know which pros will be hitting the ballroom in 2017.
According to [Entertainment Tonight](http://www.etonline.com/tv/211588kymjohnsonreturningfordwtsseason24celebritypairingsrevealed/), Kym Johnson will appear on the show for the first time since 2015’s Season 20 to compete with actor and former professional wrestler Mr. T.
The last time the 40-year-old pro starred on the program she was paired with her now-husband, Robert Herjavec. Kym and the Shark Tank star, 54, first met on DWTS as partners and later tied the knot in July 2016. They finished in seventh place on Season 20.

Interestingly, Kym previously told ET in August 2016 that she was done starring as a DWTS pro. “I love the show and I love to still be part of it, but you know, I still want to hang up my dance shoes and what a way to end,” she said at the time. “It’s like, ‘Thank you, Dancing With the Stars.'”
Other pros including Sasha Farber (paired with Olympic gymnast Simone Biles), Peta Murgatroyd (competing with Bachelor star Nick Viall), Val Chmerkovskiy (partnered with Fifth Harmony singer Normani Kordei), Gleb Savchenko (paired with Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Erika Jayne), Keo Motsepe (competing with flamenco singer Charo), and Sharna Burgess (partnered with pro bull rider Bonner Bolton) will all star on Season 24.

Veteran dancer Maksim Chmerkovskiy will also reportedly return to the ballroom this year, though we do not yet know which celebrity he is paired with. Maks, 37, and his fiancé, Peta, 30, recently welcomed their first child, baby son Shai Aleksander Chmerkovskiy, together in January.
Former Olympic figure skater Nancy Kerrigan, comedian and Saturday Night Live star Chris Kattan, ex-Jacksonville Jaguars running back Rashad Jennings and former Glee star Heather Morris will all also reportedly compete on DWTS this upcoming season.
Sadly, five fan-favorite Dancing With the Stars pros are not appearing on Season 24. Cheryl Burke, Derek Hough, Mark Ballas, Karina Smirnoff, and Tony Dovolani are hanging up their dancing shoes this year.
