Dancing With The Stars is one of the most popular shows on television, and ABC's hit promises to keep up the good content with the presences of Miles Brown and Alana Thompson.

The dancing competition, which premiered in 2005, has seen plenty of celebrities on the dance floor, but only in recent years have the producers tried their luck with children and teenagers.

According to Us Magazine, the second edition of Dancing With The Stars Juniors will have the participation of the Here Comes Honey Boo Boo and Black-ish stars.

Although ABC is yet to confirm who will be on the roster, Just Jared believes that the two young stars will dance alongside Rylee Arnold, Lindsay Arnold's sister, and Hailey Bills, Jenna Johnson's niece.

12-year-old Thompson, who rose to fame during TLC's Toddlers and Tiaras, was given her own show, a spin-off of the original series, which followed her family's adventures in and out of contests.

Although the show came to an end in 2014, after being canceled, she currently appears on her mother June Shannon's reality series titled Mama June: From Not to Hot.


13-year-old Brown, on the other hand, has seen his celebrity status rise ever since he joined the cast of Black-ish, where he stars alongside Anthony Anderson, Tracee Ellis Ross and Laurence Fishburne.

There is still no premiere date for Dancing With The Stars Juniors,  but it is clear that, after 25 seasons, the producers are trying to shake things up a bit, especially with the introduction of an all-athletes edition in 2018.

The athletes' version was won by Adam Rippon and Jenna Johnson after a relatively short show, which had a four-week duration. Still, the pair gave it their best and came out on top, winning the mirrorball trophy.
