Are you ready for the Dancing with the Stars season 21 celebrity cast reveal? With just four weeks to go before the September 14 DWTS premiere, fans are anxious to find out the names of the celebrity dancers and who their pro-dance partners will be.
While ABC is keeping the season 21 cast list under wraps, the rumors about who will be hitting the dance floor this fall are already creating a buzz about ABC’s popular ballroom dance competition. The big announcement will take place on September 2 on Good Morning America.
UPDATE: On August 24, ABC announced the first celeb dancer as Bindi Irwin, animal activist and 17-year-old daughter of the late Steve Irwin. The remaining 12 celebs are scheduled to be announced on the September 2 unless the ABC decides to leak out more names on Twitter.

Here are the latest rumors about the 2015 season 21 Dancing with the Stars celebrity cast, hosts, and judges:
Co-hosts Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews will return this fall along with judges Len Goodman, Bruno Tonioli, Julianne Hough, and Carrie Ann Inaba. There will be at least one live results show (scheduled for September 22), but ABC has yet to announce whether or not the results show will air every Tuesday during season 21.
Bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe, now engaged to Shawn Booth, is rumored to be one of the celebrities ABC is considering for the upcoming season of DWTS. After she handed out her final rose on July 27, she told E! that she would definitely consider the gig if the network offered it to her. According to a previous report from the Inquisitr, Kaitlyn and Shawn don’t have jobs at the moment, so it won’t be a big surprise to find out she’s on the cast list.
Kaitlyn won’t be the first Bachelor/Bachelorette franchise cast member to dance on the show — Bachelors Chris Soules, Sean Lowe and Jake Pavelka, Bachelorette Trista Sutter, and Melissa Rycroft (Bachelor Jason Mesnick’s season) all took on the challenge after their seasons ended.
Other names mentioned in the Dancing with the Stars rumor mill are Caitlyn Jenner, Lindsay Lohan, Nick Jonas, and Pretty Little Liars star Shay Mitchell.
“There is not nor have there ever been any negotiations on this matter. They inquired if she was interested in participating in the show and I said no thank you. That is the extent of the communication.”
Lindsay Lohan is in the cast rumors list just about every season, so time will tell if the rumor finally comes true. According to Pure DWTS, if Nick Jonas is being considered he may not be able to fit the show in due to his tour schedule, but he recently followed Shay Mitchell on Twitter — a sign that both rumored cast members will be putting on their dancing shoes in September or just a coincidence?
