Dancing with the Stars season 31 will premiere on Monday September 19 at 8 ET/5 PT pm, only streaming on the Disney+ platform.
Disney renewed DWTS for two seasons with the caveat that both 31 and 32 will be streaming only on Disney+. It will continue to air live, and allow viewers to vote for the winner. Additionally, the show will air with no commercial interruptions, which could mean longer running times for each episode.

Having said all that, as the premiere date comes closer, Disney+ has dropped a NEW promo and key art. The new trailer features reigning winner Daniella Karagach, and fellow pros Pasha Pashkov, Cheryl Burke, Artem Chigvintsev, Witney Carson, and Brandon Armstrong.
In the spot, a family watches DWTS in their living rooms, only to have the pros leap out of their TV and into their home. Everyone in the family, from grandma to the little kid is thrilled to be dancing with their favorite professionals. Especially grandma. Check it out below.

Tyra Banks will return as host and an executive producer of the show. However, she will be sharing hosting duties with former DWTS winner and America’s Funniest Home Videos host, Alfonso Ribeiro. Conrad Green, who executive produced DWTS in its early years will replace departing EP Andrew Llinares.
“My goal is to bring back a sense of happy and fun”
“I’m super excited,” Alfonso, who took home the Mirrorball Trophy in 2014 with pro dancer Witney Carson, told People magazine ahead of his hosting announcement. “For me to be asked now to co-host with Tyra, and be part of the great crew and dancers and friends … to be able to be on stage with them and to be part of that family again, is quite special for me. I mean, these dancers are friends of mine at this point now. We really do all hang out together, and talk outside of that show.”
“My goal is to bring back a sense of the happy and the fun, and the family atmosphere, that this show has always felt like for me,” he added.
Disney+ will reveal the new celebrity cast on Good Morning America on September 8.
