“This show has been and will always be incredibly special to me. Coming back feels like coming home and I couldn’t be more excited to be back in the ballroom,” Derek said in a statement.

He joins Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Tonioli at the judges table in the ballroom.

Due to current circumstances, Len Goodman will be unable to judge this season live in the ballroom, though he will still be a part of the show in a different capacity sharing his ballroom expertise from the UK.

Tyra Banks is set to host the season – and she was met with a little playful teasing by previous host Tom Bergeron. Find out what happened!
