After months and months of speculation, the question on everyone's mind has finally been answered. That question is, "Are Julianne and Derek Hough returning to the ballroom on Dancing With The Stars?"
Well, we can finally reveal, thanks to a report from Entertainment Tonight, that both siblings will, in fact, be returning for the upcoming 23rd season.
ET announced that Derek will be back as a pro, attempting to win the mirrorball trophy for the 7th time. His last win was during Season 21 with the late Steve Irwin's daughter, Bindi.
During the season he took off, he appeared in the New York Spring Spectacular at Radio City Music Hall, landed the male lead in the upcoming Broadway production of Singin' In The Rain, which is set to begin January 2017, and was cast as Corny Collins in NBC's upcoming live musical Hairspray!
Julianne will be back behind the judges table, where she has been since 2014. She took Season 22 off to pursue other opportunities and begin planning her wedding to fiancé Brooks Laich.
She kept busy by launching an activewear line, starring as Sandy in Fox's production of Grease Live, appearing on Running Wild with Bear Grylls, where she had to eat elephant dung (ew!), and serving as the co-host and creative producer for the 2016 Miss USA competition.
For the Hough siblings it seems as though "time off" really isn't time off!
The Emmy-winning brother-sister duo are always incredibly busy, but they always seem to come back to the place where their careers took off, and we love them for that!
Are y'all excited for the Hough's return to the ballroom? We sure are! Take a look at one of their many incredible dances together!
