"I'm so excited to be back with my Dancing with the Stars family again on a regular basis," Hough said. "I've always aspired to be an all-around entertainer, whether I'm acting, dancing or singing, and I'm thrilled for this opportunity that will allow me to continue all of those pursuits. Derek and I just finished our Move Live on Tour, which reminded me how much I miss the interaction with the dance fans that have been so supportive of me in my career. I am warming up the paddles and the sass, and I'm ready to have fun in this new role."

The full Dancing With The Stars cast will be revealed on Good Morning America on Thursday, September 4.
