The "Dancing with the Stars" fall 2014 kicks off Sept. 15 on ABC with an all-new cast of mirror ball trophy hopefuls. To date, news and spoilers regarding the celebrity lineup --which will be formally unveiled during the Sept. 4 edition of "Good Morning America"-- have been hard to come by, but a pair of intriguing Aug. 25 tweets served as morsels to tide over rumor-hungry fans.
The first tweet came from dancer Val Chmerkovskiy, who will return to "DWTS" for his seventh season as a pro coach. His message to followers was a simple one that read "I am so grateful it's ridiculous." Although extremely vague, a number of fans speculated that Chmerkovskiy may be referring to his as-yet unnamed celebrity partner.
Though he's yet to take home a trophy, the 28-year old has enjoyed working with a string of talented hopefuls that includes soap star Kelly Monaco, "Saved by the Bell" alum Elizabeth Berkley Lauren, and most recently, "The Wonder Years" star Danica McKellar. He achieved his highest finish, second place, with actress and singer Zendaya during season 16.
The second tweet belonged to "Teen Wolf" star Meagan Tandy. The actress and former Miss California wrote "Early call time tomorrow for an awesome new story I get to tell. I'll be back on your screens again this fall Stay Tuned! Gnite!" Her words are potentially intriguing to "DWTS" fans because according to spoiler source @DWTSGossip, a series promo photo shoot was scheduled to take place today at Walt Disney Studios.
Although new show runner Rob Wade has done much to keep the celebrity lineup under wraps, the pro coach list and panelists have been confirmed. Show alum Julianne Hough will join mainstays Carrie Ann Inaba, Len Goodman, and Bruno Tonioli as a permanent part of the judging panel. The pro coaches include Chmerkovskiy, Derek Hough, Mark Ballas, Tony Dovolani, Artem Chigvintsev, Keo Motsepe, Cheryl Burke, Witney Carson, Karina Smirnoff, Peta Murgatroyd, Emma Slater, and Allison Holker.
Tune in to "GMA" on Sept. 4 to see which celebs will round out the season 19 cast list. The "Dancing with the Stars" fall 2014 season premieres Sept. 15.
