‘Dancing With The Stars’ Gets New Spin-Off ‘Dancing With The Stars Junior’

Fans of Dancing with the Stars love this show, but they don’t get to see it all the time. It trades off the Monday night spot with The Bachelor and The Bachelorette. Right now, a new season is airing, but it is about to come to an end so that Rachel Lindsay’s season of The Bachelorette can start airing on ABC in its spot. However, fans will soon get to enjoy a DWTS spin-off, Dancing with the Stars junior.

Variety shared details of this new show and what you can expect from it. This series will actually pair up children celebrities and the children of celebrities with a junior dance partner to see if they can win their own Mirrorball trophy. It sounds a lot like the traditional series, but with the twist of everyone being much younger. Of course, the judges will have to be a bit nicer to this younger generation as well.


However, viewers won’t see Dancing with the Stars Junior right away. It isn’t set to start airing until spring of 2018. No word yet if it will end up replacing a season of the normal Dancing with the Stars or what they have planned for this new series. If it airs in the spring, it could be just another Dancing with the Stars show that fans get to see. They have not announced the cast for this show yet, but they will need judges and, of course, junior dance partners who can teach them all of the dances and make up the choreography for them as well. This information probably won’t arrive until closer to the new show starting to air. This will begin airing right after the Winter Olympics end.

Fans of Dancing with the Stars can’t wait for another show from the franchise and are really excited to see how this goes down. Now, they just have to decide who should join the show and what celebrities will be good for it as well. Of course, there are a lot of younger celebrities out there who would be a great match. You can assume they might pick up actors and actresses, but also people who are on reality shows or children of people who have reality shows such as The Real Housewives of Atlanta and Chrisley Knows Best. They will also be looking at children who are singers, athletes, and more.


This news came out at the same time as The Bachelor revealed that they would have a new show as well. Their new series will be called The Bachelor Winter Games and will start airing in February of 2018. It will put past contestants up against each other in fun games as they also see if they can find love on television once again. These shows were just announced today, and fans are curious to see how they end up working when they start in 2018. This will be similar to Bachelor Pad, but they haven’t said yet if the winner will get a cash prize or not. Fans know that things will be different than they have been on shows before. It will probably only be people who are single, though, since they have hopes they will find love.

Are you excited to see Dancing with the Stars Junior? Who would be your favorite person to see on this show? Sound off in the comments section below, and don’t miss watching Dancing with the Stars on Monday nights on ABC. This season is almost over, and they are down to just three celebrities competing for the Mirrorball trophy.
