And it’s… Tyra Banks!
Banks had this to say: “I’ve been a fan of ‘DWTS’ since its beginning…The fun mixed with raw emotion, seeing celebrities push past their comfort zones, the sizzling dance performances…it’s always transported me to my days of turning it up 10 notches on the catwalk.”
Banks also praised Bergeron in her statement, saying: “Tom has set a powerful stage, and I’m excited to continue the legacy and put on my executive producer and hosting hats.”
Variety reports that the show is getting a “creative refresh” ahead of its upcoming 29th season, but that there were no other details on what that would entail. ABC has not yet disclosed how season 29 will be produced, in light of the Coronavirus pandemic.
