Maksim Chmerkovskiy returns to DWTS, 3 cast members revealed

Maksim is coming back

With the full ‘Dancing With The Stars’ cast being revealed on Monday on ‘Good Morning America’ the rumor mill has gone into overdrive this weekend with speculations on which stars and pro-dancers are returning and who is not.

On the last season of DWTS, dance pro Maksim Chmerkovskiy got into a few heated fights with the judging panel when he felt they were being unfair to his star, Hope Solo, leaving fans wondering if Maksim planned to return to the show or not.  Recently rumors began cropping up claiming that he was not coming back to the show, but TMZ caught up with Maksim at LAX yesterday on his way to the Los Angeles dance studio to begin practice with his celebrity dance partner, Melissa Gilbert.

Reports surfaced yesterday that confirmed that Melissa Gilbert, Sherri Shepherd and Heather Locklear’s ex Jack Wagner will all be competing for the covenanted mirror ball trophy this year.  It was also recently revealed that E! co-host Giuliana Rancic was asked by producers to be part of the show, but because of scheduling conflicts she had to decline the offer.

The new season of ‘Dancing With The Stars’ will be airing next month on ABC.

Which celebrities are you hoping to see on this season of ‘Dancing With The Stars?’  Are you happy to hear that Maksim will be back?  Leave us a comment and let us know what you think.
