Judges Loraine Barry and Brian Redmond will return to Dancing with the Stars and will be joined by new judging panel member, dancer, and acclaimed choreographer, Arthur Gourounlian.

All three judges will be ready to give their informed, upfront, and sometimes tough-talking reviews and scores from each of the live performances to the contestants.

12 brand-new celebrities will now take part in the show, previously there were 11, and celebrities and their partners will be voted off from week 2 of the 12-week run of shows.
