Dancing with the Stars has found its replacement for Tyra Banks. Julianne Hough is joining the Disney+ dancing competition series as a co-host for season 32, per Variety. She has previously appeared as a dancer and judge on the show.
Banks announced her departure from the Disney+ series just last week. She is set to focus on her business endeavors.
Alfonso Ribeiro (America’s Funniest Home Videos) will host alongside Hough. He joined the series when it moved to the streaming service from ABC and interviewed the celebrities and their pro partners after their weekly performances. Hough will now take over that role in the series.
Hough will work alongside family on the series, as well. Her brother, dancer/choreographer Derek Hough, is on the judging panel with Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Tonioli. Len Goodman left the series after last season.
Hough shared her excitement about taking on the co-hosting duties for Dancing with the Stars in a post on Instagram. Check that out below.

What do you think? Are you excited to see Julianne Hough back on Dancing with the Stars?
Knew it was a matter of time. Maybe Julianne Hough can breathe some renewed life into the show. And maybe they’ll regain some lost viewers.
Finally they let go Tyra Banks, it was about time now I can enjoy watching again dancing with the star, I love Julianne and very happy that she return to host DWTS love it.
Well I’m very happy to hear about Julianne co hosting DWTS . Her and Alberto will make an excellent team. Very glad Tyra Banks is gone. Unfortunately, I no longer watch DWTS as I refuse to subscribe to streaming services. Especially Disne+.
Just cancel this show already ♂️
