The series, which premiered in June 2005, is bringing a new season that will feature the long-awaited comeback of dancer Sharna Burgess.

Meanwhile, for the first time, dancers Britt Stewart and Daniella Karagach will be paired with celebrity partners.

Stewart's participation in the show will mark the first time in its history that a Black female pro will be joining in the competition.

Back on July 13, it was announced that Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews would not be returning as hosts of "Dancing with the Stars."

The following day, it was announced that Tyra Banks was hired to be the new host. The supermodel would serve as an executive producer of the show as well.

Show judges Len Goodman, Bruno Tonioli, and Carrie Ann Inaba are all set to return for the upcoming season.

On August 17, "Good Morning America" teased the announcement for the 29th season of the hit celebrity ballroom competition.

However, it seems that "Dancing with the Stars" fans wanted no part of it. What they want to happen is for the show to bring back Bergeron and Andrews as hosts.

Fans even threatened a boycott of the long-running show if that did not happen. Some of them revealed that they already deleted "Dancing with the Stars" from their DVRs.

Meanwhile, show judges Len Goodman, Bruno Tonioli, and Carrie Ann Inaba are all set to return for the upcoming season.

Earlier this month, Goodman, who runs a ballroom dance school in Dartford, Kent, revealed he had skin cancer removed from his face.

The U.K. nonprofit charity organization, Melanoma Fund, wrote along with a photo of Goodman that the English professional ballroom dancer is urging everyone to take skin cancer seriously.
