'Dancing with the Stars' Judge Len Goodman Not Returning for Season 21

Dancing With the Stars judge Len Goodman, who has been with the show for 20 seasons since it premiered back in 2005, has decided not to return for the new season beginning September 14.

“Len will not be returning as a judge this season on Dancing With the Stars due to his schedule as a judge on Strictly Come Dancing in the UK and the birth of his new grandson,” DWTS executive producer Rob Wade told Us Weekly in a statement. Len, 71, is also part of Strictly Come Dancing, which is popular in the UK.

Judges Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Tonioli have been with the show since the start as well, with Julianne Hough coming on board back during season 19.
