Last year, Dancing with the Stars reverted back to a one-night format for its 17th season, and as the reality competition heads into its 18th outing, even more big changes are on the way.
"When you're a show reaching its 18th season and its ninth year, I think you have to keep changing things up every so often just to make sure that the experience doesn't become too familiar," executive producer Conrad Green tells TVGuide.com. "It's spring, so it's time for a spring cleaning."
Check out nine big changes coming to Dancing with the Stars this season:

Professional dancer Maksim Chmerkovskiy (who was Andrews' partner in Season 11) will return to the show after a two-season hiatus, a source close to the show has confirmed.
Dancing with the Stars has already found a replacement for Brooke Burke-Charvet.
