Dancing With The Stars May Bring Maksim Chmerkovskiy Back For Season 17

August 05, 2013 05:04 AM by Lisa Princ

Season 16 of Dancing With The Stars was definitely a bit strange for viewers, as the season was missing was one of our favorite pro dancers, Maksim Chmerkovskiy. The Ukrainian hottie revealed that he wanted to take time off for other opportunities, but could we see him in season 17? It sounds like it is definitely a possibility!

Season 16 of Dancing With The Stars was definitely not the same without Maksim Chmerkovskiy, although we did get to watch his younger brother, Val rock the dance floor. We know that Maks wanted some time off to explore other opportunities, but many fans have been wondering if he will return to the dance floor soon. Well, guess what fans? It sounds like he may be returning in the Fall!

Recently, at the television critics association, ABC’s president of entertainment was questioned about the controversial fan favorite returning for season 17 of Dancing With The Stars, in which he replied: “Maks is part of the family. He may well be back. We love having him a part of it.” Yay! While it’s not set in stone, it definitely sounds promising that Maks will be back, or at least asked back!

Meanwhile, one pro that is certain to return for season 17 is another fan favorite – Derek Hough. When questioned about his return in the Fall by Access Hollywood, Hough excitedly said he would be, while also revealing that the new season will bring some format changes.

Now it’s your turn to sound off! Do you want to see Maksim Chmerkovskiy return to Dancing With The Stars for season 17? We know you have an opinion and we want to hear it. Comment below to share your thoughts with us!

    Sure he’ll be back, if you show him enough money. I love Maks, he brings some personality to the show. I hope he comes back

    YES, Please do bring Maks back. DWTS just wasn’t the same without him. He’s a terrific dancer and always entertaining to watch. He has the talent and if he’s paired with a celeb that can actually dance, he could walk away with the mirror ball. I do think it’s funny when he’s trying to control his famous temper. ( He’s been better the last few seasons) But bring him back, PLEASE!!!! Oh and ask Julianne to come back too, she’s been missed.

    yes i would like to see him back, he is one of the best. im a 49 y/o man, and ive always have like to see ballroom style dancing, it just looks so sexy anf hot.the way the two bodies move together and the man commanding what the woman does, and the occasional times the woman taken s control. it reminds me of an activity that i have done many time, but its in another room, if you know what i mean. i really do enjoy the show keep it up guys. i heard that there might be some changes w/ the judges, i hope not. they are the perfect mix for me. well if you do want to make a change w/ then, the only thing that i would like to see is , that you add me as a fan judge for a season. thanks for some enjoyable yv.

    Yes but definitely we want to see Max back in the fall. His bad boy image added a lot of spice to the program that was missed last season. COME BACK MAX!!!

    Not having Maxim in Season 16 put the spotlight on Val, his brother, who is also one of the top dancers. Have them both come back and show their stuff so us women viewers are happy.

    yes, yes, yes, please bring him back. the show wasn’t the same without him. this time, give him someone to dance with that he may stand a chance of winning – stop giving him the OLD HAS-BEENS!!

    No. I’ve never been a fan of his. Yes, he’s good looking and a great dancer, but he’s extremely self-centered and can be a jerk. I’m sick of unprofessional and bad behavior being rewarded with more money and more air time on these types of shows. Maks could learn a lot from his younger brother.

    Maksim is a great dancer and entertainer – definitely was missed in Season 17. Derek is my favorite, but would love to see his sister, Julianne, back. It has been a long time since she was on, and she is so talented and beautiful. Definitely keep the same judges. To change them around would be a disaster. Really enjoy the show.

    We love you Maks! DWTS’s is just not the same without him. A great dancer that is fiery, good looking, and has an ego to match. There are plenty of good looking women on the show, why eliminate the best looking man, Maks? He’s got it all!!! Gotta have Derek too!

  17. bigred Says:
    August 5th, 2013 at 8:37 am

    Maybe everyone else likes him or I’m the only honest person where Maks is concerned but I can definetly do with out him. they seem to be a happier bunch of people when hes not there. So stay home the show does not need you!

  18. Norma Says:
    August 5th, 2013 at 8:52 am

    Yes, please bring Max back. Like other comments I also did not watch last season because Max was not there. Also give him a partner you would give Derek, who we know is the judges favorite, and give Derek a partner you have been giving Max. If Max doesn’t come back neither do I

    He’s arrogant and has an anger management problem; but, yes, bring him back. He’s a wonderful dancer. I agree with Sandra – pair him with someone whom he may have a chance with of winning the Mirror Ball.

  20. alice Says:
    August 5th, 2013 at 8:58 am

    Yes, not only is he a great dancer and handsome too. He may sound arrogant, but a lot of his opinions were right on the money.The judges needed to be told sometimes about their scores.

    Whatever you have to do, never let him go!

    I love Max! The show is not the same without him. He’s ultra talented, gorgeous, charismatic and is not afraid to speak the truth. I agree, give him the same caliber of partner you give Derek and he’ll win!!!!!!!

  24. Jan Says:

    Yes please bring Maks back!

    I will be very happy to see Maks back. I just hope that they give him a good partner and an equal celebrity competition, in other words, without having someone who we all know will win from the beginning (Nicole, Jennifer, Shawn, ect.). I would really like to see him win the MBT at least once before he leaves the show. God knows he deserves it after sticking around for 7 years.

  26. Mary Says:

    Disappointed not to see Maks back for Season 17. Hope h will come back for Season 18. His fans miss him.
