Maksim Chmerkovskiy Heading Back to DANCING WITH THE STARS Ballroom?
Pro dancer Maksim Chmerkovskiy was greatly missed on last season's DANCING WITH THE STARS on ABC. Now according to a report in Toofab.com, Chmerkovskiy, who has yet to take home the coveted Mirror Ball trophy, may have another shot at the prize.
Sources tell the site that Chmerkovskiy was recently seen leaving a meeting with "DWTS" executives on Wednesday (Feb. 26) and that it's "a done deal" - he will be returning to the long-running dancing reality competition for the upcoming Season 18.
Ironically, the pro's return will coincide with the debut of Erin Andrews, his Season 10 dance partner, as the show's co-host. Andrews is replacing Brooke Burke-Charvet who served as host for the past several seasons.
The new cast of "Dancing With the Stars" will be announced Tuesday, March 4 on "Good Morning America."
