Dancing with the Stars” is whipping up a media frenzy in advance of their new season.

The cast has not even been announced, and yet, the behind-the-scenes drama is just as juicy.

After Erin Andrews was confirmed to be replacing Brooke Burke-Charvet and the band was ousted as well, it’s good to hear that an old favorite might be returning.

Toofab reports that Maksim Chmerkovskiy will be back full-time as a dance pro, going so far as to call it a “done deal.”

The report has not yet been confirmed, but all will be announced next Tuesday, when the stars and their partners are unveiled on “Good Morning America.”

Maks returned to the show last fall as a guest judge, but fans would surely be happy to see more of him on the dance floor.

“DWTS” returns on Monday, March 17. Does Maks’s return mean you’ll tune in? Let us know in the comments!
