“Yeah, it’s been some time,” Peta announced during an interview on GMA. “I’m definitely a little bit nervous but I’m very excited to get back. I’m definitely missed the dance floor. I haven’t been able to defend my title with Nyle [DiMarco].”

“This is the only difficult part about coming back on the show because it will just take time away from being with this dude,” Maks admitted. “But I just want to make her coming back and winning as difficult as possible. Yeah, somebody has to pose some competition.”

The couple welcomed their son Shai earlier in the year, and it was believed that they would sit out this season.

'Dancing With the Stars' 2017: Returning Pro Dancers Will Be...

There is exactly one month left until the season 24 premiere of Dancing With the Stars and people are buzzing about who will be appearing on the show this year!

We already know that Derek Hough will not be competing as he is pursuing other projects at the moment, and Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Peta Murgatroyd will be sitting this season out while they care for their newborn child.

So, who will actually be returning? We have a good idea of which pros will be back for some more dancing and we might see some surprises when the cast is announced next month.

“I think everyone else is coming back,” the EPs dished in a recent interview. But how likely is that?

Florence Henderson Was at 'DWTS' Days Before She Died

The sad news that Florence Henderson has died is made even more surprising after realizing that she was in the audience at Dancing With the Stars just days ago.

Florence‘s manager confirmed that she died on Thanksgiving surrounded by her loved ones.

The legendary The Brady Bunch actress sat in the audience at night one of the finale on Monday (November 21) to support her former co-star Maureen McCormick.

Maureen was a contestant on the show this season, and while she did not make it to the finals, she did perform on Tuesday night with the rest of the eliminated dancers.

Florence, who is an alum of Dancing With the Stars after competing in 2010, was a fixture on the show this season. She was in the audience several times and even made a guest appearance, dancing in a Brady Bunch-themed number alongside Maureen in week two! Watch a clip of that below.
