Maksim Chmerkovskiy is teasing his potential return to Dancing with the Stars Season 25.

Although the official line-up of professionals and celebrities hasn’t yet been confirmed by ABC, Maksim is teasing that he may be heading back to the show once again after admitting this week that he’s ready to win.

“If I join the show, if I join the season, it’s not to skate by and just win the money,” Chmerkovskiy told the International Business Times ahead of Season 25.

Although he didn’t explicitly confirm that he’d be back again this year, Maksim told the site that he’s “not an irresponsible athlete.”

He added, “I’m on the season to do my best and maybe win.”

There’s been much speculation over whether the new dad will be back on DWTS after suffering an injury earlier this year while dancing with former Glee star Heather Morris.

As fans of the ABC show will remember, Chmerkovskiy suffered a calf muscle injury while dancing with Heather that left him out of action for four weeks. When he finally returned to DWTS, the couple were shockingly eliminated in a huge upset.

And it sounds like that dramatic exit earlier this year — despite Heather being one of the favorites to win — could be what’s pushing Maksim to return again.
