DWTS makes huge change after season on Disney+ABC

Dancing with the Stars will be returning to terrestrial television following its stint on Disney+, with the show boasting some new changes.

The 32nd season of the US version of Strictly Come Dancing will air simultaneously on both ABC and Disney+, with the episodes being available on Hulu a day later, according to Variety. The previous season, which was won by Charli D’Amelio and Mark Ballas, streamed exclusively on Disney+ last year and wasn't available to watch on ABC for the first time ever.

The upcoming season will boast a new hosting duo as well, with former professional and judge Julianne Hough joining Alfonso Ribeiro following Tyra Banks’ exit. The judging panel will consist of Carrie Ann Inaba, Bruno Tonioli and Derek Hough.

Speaking about hosting the show in March, Julianne Hough, a two-time winner on the series who also served as a judge between seasons 19 and 21, said: “It is such an honour to be re-joining Dancing with the Stars as co-host. The show holds such a special place in my heart from the many years and different roles I have had the privilege of being a part of."

She added: “The energy is magnetic every time you step foot into the ballroom and I can’t wait to feel it again – and of course to share it all with the absolute best and most loyal fans – for another exciting season."

Banks, who served as a host for three seasons, previously hinted she would leave the show sooner rather than later. “I feel it's time for me to really focus on my business and my entrepreneurship and also producing more TV, behind the scenes," she said in March.

“You know what, I think it's time to graduate from the dance floor to the stock market floor,” she added. “I think it's time, don't you think it's time? I think it's time.”

Dancing with the Stars season 32 will air on ABC and Disney+ later this year.
