It’s almost time for Season 32 of Dancing with the Stars.

Ahead of the big cast announcement on Good Morning America on Wednesday morning, ABC made the premiere date official.

The big day is coming up soon, so make sure to mark your calendar and set your DVR for Tuesday, September 26, at 8/7c.

Before the big reveal, we’ve learned a few big names that would be among the cast as announcements started trickling in in July when Derek Hough helped announce Ariana Madix during a visit to her sandwich shop.

Ariana’s casting came as no surprise following months of rumors that she would join DWTS after Scandoval rocked Vanderpump Rules fans and changed the course of her life.

Following Ariana, we learned that Charity Lawson would join the cast on The Bachelorette finale when her new fiance, Dotun Olubeko, gave her the good news.

The third and final cast announcement was Jamie Lynn Spears before the big Wednesday reveal. On Tuesday, she announced on Good Morning America that she would be competing for the Mirror Ball Trophy and that her partner would be Alan Bersten.

Dancing with the Stars Season 32 cast

On Good Morning America on Wednesday, the complete Dancing with the Stars cast was revealed, and we also learned who their partners will be.

It turns out that rumors Mira Sorvino would be joining the cast were true. The Mighty Aphrodite star will compete this season, and her partner will be Gleb Savchenko.

The first competitor announced for Season 32 was Ariana Madix, and we’ve been waiting for months to see who she would be coupled with. Now we know that the Vanderpump Rules star will compete with Pasha Pashkov.

What will be changing and what will be staying the same for Season 32

Last year, Dancing with the Stars did not air on ABC and only streamed on Disney+. This season, the series will air in both places and will make a big move to Tuesday nights.

Another big change DWTS fans are likely looking forward to is Tyra Banks’ exit. She moved on to pursue other business endeavors, and Tyra’s co-host role was filled by former pro dancer Julianne Hough. She’ll be co-hosting alongside Alfonso Ribiero, who is returning.

The saddest change of all is the loss of Len Goodman. He announced his retirement last season after serving as the lead judge. He is not being replaced, leaving only three judges this season instead of four.

Derek Hough, Carrie Ann Inaba, and Bruno Tonioli will all share the judging roles, as none are taking over Len’s lead spot.

Dancing with the Stars airs on Tuesdays at 8/7c on ABC.
