Dancing With The Stars is welcoming Maksim Chmerkovskiy back to the ballroom. And the ladies are pretty excited about it! So what does Maksim have to say about his return to DWTS?
Fans are finally hearing some good news about season 18 of DWTS – Maks is coming back! Can you picture his shirtless body now? After 15 seasons on the show, Maksim took a break to pursue other opportunities. Some of these “opportunities” included some acting gigs on daytime shows as well as some movie roles.
Maksim hasn’t addressed his return on his Twitter or Facebook page, but Us Weekly says it’s a done deal. Maks was seen this past Wednesday meeting with the DWTS executive team. “The deal was arranged,” an insider told Us Weekly.
This seems to be good news for die-hard DWTS fans, since the show has been making some major changes for the upcoming season. The large live band and Brooke Burke-Charvet were fired to attract a younger audience. Erin Andrews, Maks’ former dance partner, was given the co-hosting gig. As for who Maks’ dance partner will be - we will have to wait until March 4th when the cast is announced on Good Morning America.
