During the Television Critics Association Winter Press Tour on Tuesday, ABC Entertainment president Karey Burke announced that the reality dance competition series will be returning for season 28.

“I can confirm that it will definitely be returning in the fall,” Burke told reporters.

Although DWTS has occasionally aired two seasons annually — spring and fall — PEOPLE confirmed in December that the long-running ABC show would be taking a hiatus and skipping a spring cycle like 2018’s Athletes mini-season.

That’s not all, according to Burke via TV Line, Dancing With The Stars could be back for a Spring season afterwards. Read on….

Newly-installed Alphabet entertainment president Karey Burke addressed the speculation Tuesday at the Television Critics Assoc. winter press tour, declaring unequivocally that the show will “definitely be returning in the fall.” Regarding the decision to skip a spring cycle for the first time in franchise history, Burke deflected, “That decision was made before I got here.”

Having skipped this spring outright and aired an abbreviated all-athletes edition a year ago, could DWTS ever be a proper twice-a-year show again? “We’re in conversations about that,” Burke told TVLine. “They’re coming in soon to talk about their plans for the fall, and we’ll discuss it then.”
