Derek Hough, Mark Ballas, Cheryl Burke, Peta Murgatroyd, Val Chmerkovskiy, Tony Dovolani and Karin Smirnoff will all be back to show off their stuff, but a couple of fan favorites are noticeably not on the list.
Sharna’s fans are clearly not happy with the announcement but the Aussie tweeted in response, “Feeling so much love right now. Thank you beautiful tweeps, your words mean a lot to me. Love you all right back. Xxx”
Emma Slater will return for her third go-round as a pro and Witney Carson will be back for her sophomore pro season.
Rounding out the cast will be first-time pros Alison Volker (who has previously been nominated for an Emmy for her choreography work with Derek on the show), Artem Chigvintsev (he appeared as a pro on the UK’s version of DWTS) and Keoikantse Motsepe.
