ABC(NEW YORK) — The cast of the new season of ABC’s Dancing with the Stars will be revealed on September 6 on ABC’s Good Morning America, but Thursday morning, we found out who the professional dancers will be this year.  The big news?  Mark Ballas is back.

The two-time Mirror Ball trophy winner has been away for two seasons, but when the new season returns September 18, he’ll be front and center.  However, his best bud, Derek Hough, won’t be on the show this time, but Val Chmerkovskiy, his brother Maks Chmerkovsky, and Maks’ wife, Peta Murgatroyd, will all be there.  Former troupe member Alan Bersten, who’s filled in for Maks in the past, has been promoted to full-time pro.
