Dancing with the Stars is heading into its 31st season, with the new season heading to Disney+ as its first live stream show. While the majority of the show will be relatively the same there will be some new additions to the show.
Tyra Banks is back as host and executive producer of Dancing with the Stars for her third consecutive season. Joining her as co-host is DWTS season 19 Mirrorball Champion Alfonso Ribeiro. Expert judges Len Goodman, Carrie Ann Inaba, Bruno Tonioli, and Derek Hough also resume their seats on the ballroom floor. The season 31 premiere date on Disney+ will be announced at a later date.

When asked about his thoughts on coming back to DWTS, Alfonso Ribeiro had this to say.
“‘Dancing with the Stars’ has been such an important part of my life for so many years, and I am ecstatic to officially re-join this tight-knit family as co-host,” said Ribeiro. “Tyra and I have a longstanding friendship that I hope will resonate with all of the fans at home as we kick off this new season on Disney+.”
Tyra Banks was excited to hear the announcement that Ribiero would be joining her on the dance floor. She has had a long friendship with the actor going all the way back to their Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air days.
“I’ve known Alfonso since I was 19 years old and he always puts a smile on my face whenever I see him,” said Banks. “Having such a fun-loving, longtime friend as co-host warms my heart. Plus, he’s won the competition before, so he knows exactly what the stars are going through. Bantering back and forth with him live is going to be so much fun!”
After an impressive 30 seasons on ABC, Dancing with the Stars moves to its new home on Disney+, premiering exclusively in the U.S. and Canada this fall, and making Dancing with the Stars the first live series to debut on the streaming service.
