Everything You Need to Know About Season 31 of “Dancing With the Stars”: Cast, Host, Air Date, and Much More Infomation!
It won’t be long until the new season of Dancing With the Stars returns to our autumn television schedules. The 31st season of the reality competition series will have fresh twists, such as a new co-host in the ballroom. Perhaps the most noticeable distinction is in the viewing method. As of this next fall, the long-running Dancing with the Stars will be the first live event to air solely on Disney+, after formerly airing on ABC.
In addition, the 31st season of Dancing with the Stars will be streamed on the platform without any commercial interruptions. Given that the dancers and staff of the series typically use commercial breaks to change costumes, rehearse the next scene, and so on, this is a radical departure from the norm. Where will the rich scenery for the dances come from? Is there an estimated time when the stage will be cleared of its accumulated confetti and glitter? When will Tyra find the time to switch into all the many outfits she has planned for the show? The number of questions we have is overwhelming.
While we won’t know everything about Season 31 until it premieres, here is what we do know about it so far.
Dancing With the Stars Season 31 Cast
This season of Dancing With the Stars will have a new co-host. Alfonso Ribeiro (who won Season 19 with professional dancer Witney Carson) will be co-hosting Tyra Banks. Tyra has hosted the competition solo for the past two seasons, despite using a set designed for a hosting team. Perhaps if there were a second host, Tyra wouldn’t have to rush up the stairs for interviews or slow down the show for costume changes during the commercial breaks.
Len Goodman, Carrie Ann Inaba, Bruno Tonioli, and Derek Hough are all returned to evaluate the contestants once again.
Notable competitors for the upcoming season include (but are not limited to) Cheryl Burke, Witney Carson, Artem Chigvintsev, Brandon Armstrong, Daniella Karagach, and Pasha Pashkov. Neither Lindsay Arnold nor Sharna Burgess will be returning for the upcoming season.
On September 8 we will reveal the full cast of candidates. We eagerly await Season 31 to learn which new stars will reveal their latent rhythmic talents (or lack thereof).
Charli D’Amelio, a popular user of the video-sharing platform TikTok, and her mother, Heidi, have reportedly been included among Season 31’s rumored cast members. Sutton Stracke, a cast member on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, and Robert Irwin, the son of the late crocodile hunter Steve Irwin, are two more names that have been bandied about. In 2015, Bindi Irwin—sister—won Robert’s Dancing With the Stars Season 21. However, to reiterate, no competitors have been officially announced. ABC plans to air the tally sometime next week.
Premiere of Season 31 on Disney+
Disney+ revealed the debut date for Season 31 (September 19, 2022). (We have not yet announced the time slot.) With the launch of Disney+, the streaming service will debut its first live-action series, the long-running reality competition. This is part of Disney’s strategy to increase the number of unscripted shows it offers.

Slight Alterations to the Current Structure
Carrie Ann Inaba, one of the judges on the show, told E! News in June 2022 that the new location was “a little bit unusual” for the program. “Real-time voting in every state would make a big difference, in my opinion. Perhaps the scripts will have elements that will be well received. Although resistance to change is common, I believe people can and will adjust.”
Peta Murgatroyd had hinted earlier that month that the absence of ads on Disney+ will have an impact on DWTS in the future. She told Us, “It’s going to be a longer program since there is no advertising in between anymore, so we’ve gotta fill a lot of space up.” “Plus, a wide variety of available times. It appeals to me.”
For Season 31, Who Will Host “Dancing with the Stars”?
Their current anchor, Tyra Banks, will continue to host the show even though it has moved from network television to a streaming service. After Tom Bergeron and his longstanding cohost, Erin Andrews was controversially fired from the show, she joined the dancing competition as host in season 29.
However, this will be the first season in which Tyra is joined by other hosts. Alfonso Ribeiro, the winner of Dancing With the Stars Season 19, will be appearing alongside her. The actor has filled in as a host before and was a fan favorite during his time on the show. As a fan favorite, he should be well-received by the show’s core audience.
Former contestants Simone Biles, Bindi Irwin, Jojo Siwa, and more are featured in the official teaser for Dancing with the Stars, which premiered on August 22. In light of this new information, we can’t wait to get this tournament started.
On August 11, the official DWTS and Disney+ Twitter account shared the following advertisement, encouraging viewers to “make your heart dance in a whole new manner” by watching the series via streaming:
