The concept of the show is to pair a celebrity with a professional dancer in an attempt to win a high score from a panel of three judges and then a high number of votes from the viewers, who can call in and vote online. The person who receives the lowest score is eliminated, but they are allowed to dance one last dance at the end of the show.
ABC announced today that Dancing with the Stars has been picked up for a 29th season. The good news comes six months after the veteran competition series crowned its last champion.
A former flagship on the network, the series has remained a reliable performer after 15 years on the air, still often managing to best other unscripted competition in its time slot.
Look a return as part of the 2020-2021 season.
