Lifetime has renewed its documentary series Dance Moms for a third season, the network announced Wednesday. The show will return next year with 26 new episodes.

Dance Moms follows instructor Abby Lee Miller as she coaches young dancers (and their mothers) as they follow their dreams of being stage stars. Miller is also the star of Lifetime's offshoot series, Abby's Ultimate Dance Competition, which premiered this week.
