Professional dancer Maksim Chmerkovskiy didn’t dance on the last season of Dancing With The Stars, but that doesn’t mean that he’s done with the show for good. In fact, there are reports swirling across the internet that the pro is making his return to the show this season.
ABC’s president of entertainment Paul Lee said on Sunday, “Maks is part of the family. He may well be back. We love having him be part of the show.”
Chmerkovskiy’s return may not be the only plot twist for the popular show. ABC revealed in May that it was cutting the Tuesday results show and focusing on the two-hour Monday show. Lee did not provide any more details about the changes but hinted the elimination may occur at the end of each show.
Season 17 of Dancing with the Stars kicks off Sept. 16 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
