Fashion Style posted a set of the pros set to return for Dancing With The Stars Season 21. They also write that Len Goodman has retired as a judge. Not only that, they post on celebrities interested in doing the show. Like @DWTSGossip posted at twitter, I agree how they never set the cast this early. I’d take this all with a grain of salt (even though I love who they mentioned for celebs). Heidi, what do you think? Scroll below to see her comment…
Pending any further commitments, the following pros are slated to return to the ballroom floor.
The male pro cast will include Derek Hough, Tony Dovolani, Mark Ballas, season 20 winner Val Chmerkovskiy, Artem Chigvinstev and Keo Motsepe.
For the females, reportedly returning will be Sharna Burgess, Witney Carson, Allison Holker, Emma Slater and Peta Murgatroyd.
Uncertain as to their return is Kym Johnson, who is currently in a relationship with former partner and “Shark Tank” star Robert Herjavec.
Also returning to the judge’s table are Carrie Ann Inaba, Julianne Hough and Bruno Tognoli. Len Goodman has retired from the United States version of the series, but will remain in the U.K. to judge “Strictly Come Dancing.”
There has also been a report that several celebrities are interested in appearing on the show, including singer Ricky Martin, “Brady Bunch” star Maureen McCormick, “Glee” star Chris Colfer, model Christie Brinkley, actress Marilu Henner, singer Nick Lachey (who’s brother Drew Lachey won season 2) and actress Heather Locklear.

Heidi: Total BS. Like “Fashion Style” is going to have clue before any other outlet. Derek doesn’t even know if he’s back yet and he said so as recently as a week ago. I thought I heard Kym was going back to Oz as a Judge. As for who they claim is interested?? Also BS with the possible exception of Heather Locklear, Christie and Marilu (which they probably got from us). As for Len, there was just a more reliable source that quoted TPTB saying not to count him out just yet.
