When the leaves start to turn and pumpkin spice latte season is upon us, Dancing With the Stars will be back.
Though it's been 16 years since the first season of DWTS was introduced on ABC, the ballroom dance competition show has continued to be a popular series on the network. This year, Dancing With the Stars will celebrate its 30th season, which means fans should expect even more fun and surprises this fall. In an interview with TV Insider, host and executive producer Tyra Banks dropped hints about what season 30 could entail — and it sounds like a special throwback twist is being considered.
"There is something beautiful about a doing a retrospect when you hit a milestone year," she told the outlet. "At the same time, there are so many new viewers [in season 29], and a retrospect may not resonate with them. So, if we do one, it would have to be for those diehard fans that have been here forever, but not make it so ‘inside baseball’ where the new people don’t know what the heck is going on."
For all the info on what Dancing With the Stars season 30 will look like, keep on scrolling:
When will Dancing With the Stars season 30 premiere on ABC?
Dancing With the Stars season 30 will premiere on Monday, September 20 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC. Assuming ABC sticks to its normal fall schedule, the show will continue to air new episodes on Monday nights throughout the fall and wrap up sometime toward the end of November.
Who will host Dancing With the Stars season 30?
Ahead of season 29, ABC bid farewell to longtime cohosts Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews and brought on Tyra as a solo host and executive producer. As far as we know, the network is keeping Tyra on as host once again.
Is Tom Bergeron coming back to Dancing With the Stars?
If you follow Tom on Twitter, you already know that he shocked everyone in April when he posted a clip from The Godfather: Part III where Al Pacino's character Michael Corleone says, "Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in." This immediately made folks think he was coming back to Dancing With the Stars after the network let him go before last season.

But a few days later, Tom clarified to his fans that he will not be coming back to Dancing With the Stars.

Who will be the Dancing With the Stars judges?
Good news for fans who missed Len Goodman (who couldn't travel from the U.K. to LA to be a full-time judge last season because of the coronavirus pandemic). For season 30, the show is officially welcoming Len back while also keeping former pro Derek Hough on the panel. That means Derek, Len, Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Tonioli will all be judging the competition this year.
Who is in the Dancing With the Stars season 30 cast?
If history tells us anything, we're going to have to wait until later this summer for the answer to this question. Usually, we'll get a few celebrity reveals in July/August followed by the official cast reveal in late August or early September on ABC's Good Morning America.
Once we get some more info on the cast, we'll be sure to update this post immediately. But for now, your guess is as good as ours!
