ABC knows what their viewers want: more dancing! The network announced on May 16 that in Spring 2018, they’ll launch their first ever spin-off to ‘Dancing with the Stars’ — a junior edition.
Which celebrity kids are you dying to see dance? Well you may just get it. Dancing with the Stars Junior will pair celebrity kids and kids of celebrities with pro junior ballroom dancers to perform choreographed routines for a new season. Of course there will alos be a panel of expert judges; those will be announced at a later date. While we’re not sure yet what the age range will be, it seems that after 23 seasons of Dancing with the Stars, it’s time to take it the next step further.
Many of the pro dancers and judges have recently had children so who knows — maybe we’ll see some of them on the dance floor. Next week will be the season finale of season 23! The final teams are MLB pro David Ross and Lindsay Arnold, NFL pro Rashad Jennings and Emma Slater, and Fifth Harmony’s Normani Kordei and Val Chmerkovksiy.
DWTS Junior is one of many new shows coming to ABC, including the new American Idol, Alex, Inc., The Crossing, Deception, For The People, The Good Doctor, The Gospel of Kevin, The Mayor, Splitting Up Together, and The Bachelor Winter Games.
