When does 'Dancing with the Stars' release?

'Dancing With The Stars' Season 31 will premiere on Monday, September 19, 2022.

How can I watch 'Dancing with the Stars'?

The season premieres on Disney + as the first live-streaming reality competition program in the United States – and we get two hours of commercial-free viewing. That's a historic moment, therefore it should be an exciting season!

Who's starring in 'Dancing with the Stars'?

This season of 'Dancing With the Stars,' there will be a new co-host. In addition to Tyra Banks, Alfonso Ribeiro (who won Season 19 with pro-Witney Carson) will take the stage with the supermodel. Tyra hosted the competition alone for the final two seasons on a set designed for a hosting duo. Perhaps having another emcee to share the responsibility would allow Tyra to rush to the top of the steps for chats or keep up with those intricate outfit changes even without ad breaks.

The judges, who include the gifted Derek Hough, the over-the-top Bruno Tonioli, the tough-but-fair Carrie Ann Inaba, and the mean-mugging Len Goodman, are also returning. Pasha Pashkov, Daniella Karagach, Brandon Armstrong, Artem Chigvintsev, Witney Carson, and Cheryl Burke will be among the pros this season, with more to be revealed. Sharna Burgess and Lindsay Arnold have declared that they will not be returning for the upcoming season.

Official cast announcements for the show's contestants were made on September 8.

What is 'Dancing with the Stars' all about?

One of the longest-running shows in television history, 'Dancing With The Stars' pairs pro dancers with a mix of celebs, actors, influencers, singers, etc. Basically, persons from the entertainment industry who do not dance professionally compete to win the coveted Mirror Ball trophy. Over a course of around 11 weeks, the pairs are made to perform various dance styles to bag judges' scores along with fan votes to stay in the completion. Eliminations, challenges, and redemptions are all part of the journey to the finale, which sees one winner emerge as the best dancer. Season 31 too, will as usual follow the same pattern.

What is the buzz around 'Dancing with the Stars'?

Disney+ has signed up 'Dancing with the Stars' for two seasons, and Season 31 will be ad-free this fall. Disney recently revealed that an ad-supported version of the streaming site would be available beginning December 8, although 'DWTS' usually crowns a champion before then to avoid interfering with Season 31. Disney has yet to determine whether Season 32 will remain ad-free or return to its commercial ways.
