The official cast list for Season 32 of “Dancing With the Stars” is finally here!
After months of anticipation, all of the celebrities and pro dancers who will be competing for the mirrorball trophy were announced live during “Good Morning America” on Wednesday.
See the full list of stars – and their new dance partners – below.
Jamie Lynn Spears and Alan Bersten
Does Britney Spears’ younger sister have what it takes to win the competition series? The “Sweet Magnolias” actress will be in good hands with pro partner Bersten. She previously revealed she’ll be donating her weekly salary to SAG and the Writers Guild of America amid the ongoing strikes.
Mauricio Umansky and Emma Slater
The real estate broker will be making his ballroom debut following his highly publicized split from “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Kyle Richards. Producers certainly knew what they were doing with this pairing, seeing as Slater also dabbles with real estate – and is newly single herself.
Alyson Hannigan and Sasha Farber
“This one time, at dance camp…” We were thrilled to see this “American Pie” actress on the lineup for Season 32. Paired with pro dancer Farber, we have a feeling the “How I Met Your Mother” star will make it far in the competition.
Harry Jowsey and Rylee Arnold
From Netflix’s “Too Hot to Handle” to “DWTS!” This charming reality TV heartthrob will be sure to bring some laughs to the ballroom. While his pro partner is new to the competition, fans will recognize her from competing on the “Juniors” version – and as the younger sister of veteran pro Lindsay Arnold.
Lele Pons and Brandon Armstrong
With the social media star’s massive following on Instagram and TikTok, we have no doubt her fans will show out and vote to keep her and her pro partner in the competition each week. Plus, it’s pretty clear the songstress has the moves to back up her well-deserved place in the ballroom.
Jason Mraz and Daniella Karagach
The “I’m Yours” singer has nabbed two impressive Grammy Awards, but does he have what it takes to win a mirrorball? We have a feeling his performance skills, mixed with Season 30 champion Karagach’s stellar choreography, will be the perfect combo to take them far in the competition.
Charity Lawson and Artem Chigvintsev
Adrian Peterson and Britt Stewart
This athlete is considered one of the greatest running backs in NFL history, becoming the fifth-fastest player to run for 5,000 yards in 2010. Whether his fast footwork will translate to the dance floor will be a challenge his pro partner will likely hear about from the panel of judges each week.
Ariana Madix and Pasha Pashkov
The “Vanderpump Rules” star has been slaying every opportunity that’s come her way ever since ex Tom Sandoval’s cheating scandal with Raquel Leviss broke the internet earlier this year. We’re so ready for Madix’s revenge – and we know Pashkov will perfectly find a way to tell her story through dance.
Barry Williams and Peta Murgatroyd
From “Brady Bunch” to the ballroom! While Williams may be one of the older celebrities competing this season, fans shouldn’t count him and Murgatroyd out too early. In addition to his TV and movie projects, he’s got an incredibly impressive Broadway resume including touring roles in shows like “The Music Man,” “The Sound of Music,” “Grease” and “West Side Story.”
Mira Sorvino and Gleb Savchenko
Seeing Sorvino’s name on the lineup, fans already have their fingers crossed for some kind of dance inspired by the actress’ role in the cult classic comedy “Romy and Michelle’s High School Reunion.” Needless to say, we’re all counting on fun choreography king Savchenko to make it happen!
Tyson Beckford and Jenna Johnson
Tyra Banks may no longer be hosting the show, but we’ve still got a supermodel in the ballroom this season! The men’s fashion icon will be strutting his way through the competition with help from Season 26 champion Johnson. Hopefully a “Zoolander” moment will sneak its way into one of his routines.
Xochitl Gomez and Val Chmerkovskiy
Fans are already rooting for the actress to bring the superhero skills she displayed as America Chavez in “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness” to the ballroom for Season 32. And with help from veteran pro Chmerkovskiy, we have no doubt they’ll slay the competition.
Matt Walsh and Koko Iwasaki
Last but certainly not least, this two-time Emmy Award-nominated actor from HBO’s award-winning comedy series “Veep” rounds out the Season 32 cast. His charm, comedic chops and performance skills will likely help him and returning pro Iwasaki rack up fan votes.
For more Page Six reality TV update
Noticeably absent from the list of pro dancers this year is Lindsay Arnold, Witney Carson and Sharna Burgess, all of whom have welcomed babies within the past few years.
While Arnold and Carson announced weeks ago that they chose not to come back in order to focus on family life, Burgess revealed in a teaser for her new “Old•ish” podcast that she wasn’t asked to return.
“[It] was definitely a huge shock to me,” admitted Burgess, who last competed in 2021 with boyfriend Brian Austin Green. “Last season I was supposed to come back but [my son] Zane was only eight weeks old. I just felt like I needed to sit in motherhood with Zane. It was my first baby, first experience, it was a lot.”
Burgess said she intended to come back this season – but never got the call from producers.
“I realized [it] when those [pro dancer] spots were all filled,” she said, confessing she “had a feeling” she might not be asked back. “I didn’t get confirmed on or off; I just knew because of other people. That was really hard.”
Longtime pro Cheryl Burke will also be missed after announcing her retirement from the dance competition series last November after 26 seasons.
“I am overwhelmed. I’ve been trying to hold back the tears,” she told Page Six at the time. “[It’s been] so hard … [but] I had to do this for me.”
The all-new season of “Dancing With the Stars,” co-hosted by Alfonso Ribeiro and Julianne Hough, premieres Tuesday, Sept. 26 at at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on ABC and Disney+.
