Judge Len Goodman Might Not Return To 'Dancing With The Stars' This Season - Find Out Why

When Dancing With The Stars returns, it might be without longtime head judge, Len Goodman.

According to new host and executive producer Tyra Banks, Len is still in England and because of travel restrictions to and from both countries could be left out of the show.

“Carrie Ann [Inaba] is definitely back, and Bruno [Tonioli], who I can’t wait to vibe with because he is just as crazy as I am,” Tyra confirmed, before adding that Len might be absent.

“At the moment, we’re trying to figure out how to incorporate Len Goodman because he is in England, and there’s all these travel restrictions because of COVID-19. So we’re trying to figure that out,” she shared.

We’ll have to wait to see if Len will return when the season kicks off on Monday, September 14 on ABC.

Tyra also confirmed that popular pro dancer Derek Hough will be back in the ballroom.

“I am very excited about that because I know Derek and he’s fun,” she said. “But you just gonna have to wait and see how he’s coming back.”

It was teased earlier this week that Derek would be back in a secret role. See the promo here!
