As previously reported, Goodman announced in December that Dancing's 20th season would be his last, as he wanted "a bit of time off," from flying back and forth between the U.S. and the U.K., where he judges Strictly Come Dancing, the show on which Dancing is based.
"Len will not be returning as a judge this season on Dancing with the Stars due to his schedule as a judge on Strictly Come Dancing in the U.K. and the birth of his new grandson," executive producer Rob Wade said in a statement to Glamour. He suggested that Goodman may still be involved in the show in some way (perhaps he'll return as a guest judge?), "but we will have to wait and see."
Will you miss Len? Who would you like to see guest-judge this season?
