Dancing with the Stars has certainly had plenty of shakeups leading up to Season 18, but at least one familiar face will be back in the ballroom — and we're not talking about new co-host Erin Andrews.
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.
Chmerkovskiy, 34, left the show in 2012 after the All-Stars season to "explore other opportunities," according to a statement he released at the time. He appeared on an episode of DWTS last season as a guest judge.
The Dancing with the Stars Season 18 cast will be announced on Good Morning America onTuesday, March 4. DWTS premieres Monday, March 17 at 8/7c on ABC.
