Maksim Chmerkovskiy Planning To Return To Dancing With The Stars Next Season

According to a new interview with Maks at, he is planning on returning next season for another shot at the mirror ball. Despite some rough edges last season, Maks says he loves the show and what it stands for. Below is a take where Maks voices that there are things he’s not extremely proud of, but, his imperfections and the “not-so-good” moments have made him who he is today.

“There were some things that I’m not extremely proud of, but I think that the imperfections and not-so-good moments are exactly what made me who I am,” he says.

It’ll be impossible to forget those moments since past competitions will begin airing on GSN (Game Show Network). The cable network will air seasons 4 through 14 beginning Jan. 21 on Saturdays at 6 p.m. ET/5 p.m. CT.

“There were some ups and downs, but every season had something interesting in it, whether it was the dynamic of a partnership or me speaking back to the judges,” says Chmerkovskiy.

So, what do you think? Are you looking forward to another season with Maks if the powers that be hire him for another season? I hope Maks will be back and I’m still a fan of his dancing, but, I hope he’s truly learned some lessons from last season and he will rise above from here on out in being an example to those who look up to him. I also hope they pair him with a person who isn’t so much of a match to his personality like last season. I’m not making excuses, but, that had to be hard to deal with for both parties.

Heidi’s Comment: Well, he should have learned by now, one would think.  But, that said, I do appreciate that he recognizes that he has had some not good moments on the show. I didn’t get the feeling that he thought he had done anything that people could criticize last season. To acknowledge that is a sign of some growth, anyway.  As for coming back to the show – HE wants to, but that doesn’t mean it will happen. I personally think he could use a bit of a break. One season wouldn’t kill him. Or his fans. I’m living proof. 🙂
