“Dancing with the Stars” is back with a new, dynamic cast of celebrities who are ready to hit the ballroom floor and celebrate the show’s landmark 25th season. The competition begins with the two-hour season premiere, live, MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 18 (8:00-10:01 p.m. EDT), on The ABC Television Network. The premiere will kick off with an exciting opening number featuring head judge Len Goodman and the entire cast of “Dancing with the Stars,” choreographed by the show’s own Emmy-winning Mandy Moore.
This season’s lineup of celebrity dancers includes a “Shark,” a married couple whose pro partners are also a married couple, a “Pretty Little Liar,” a “Property Brother,” a ‘80s pop icon, a WWE superstar and a NBA champion, to name just a few. Each couple will perform a salsa, foxtrot, tango or cha cha, vying for America’s vote for the first time.
