With the new Dancing with the Stars cast, you can rest easy knowing that the show is going to get even better this season. Even though the show skipped its standard Spring season, fans can be assured that the wait was worth it as it resumes on Monday, September 16 at 8:00 p.m. on ABC. With a few changes to the upcoming 2019 season, things are definitely going to get better.

The show had to take a short hiatus, skipping their usual Spring return due to the last season's controversial end. What this means is that unlike their normal practice, this year fans will have to contend with only one season of the award-winning dance show. Even so, fans could finally sigh with relief as ABC announced the return of the show this year.

Are there any rules?

With the 27th season of the show ending the way it did, a lot of fans called for the restructuring of the show to make it better. There was the feeling that some of the best contestants got eliminated way too early in the show leaving those with consistently low scores to emerge winners in the end. This aspect actually attracted some not-so-good comments from fans and other stars across the country.

Following the general public feeling, this year's show is likely to be more about talent and dancing competition as opposed to a popularity contest. The show's host, Tom Bergeron, made the confirmations of the changes earlier in June as shown on his twitter post.

To cement the message further, ABC Entertainment President Burke also confirmed the same in a statement at the Disney press back in May.

"We have been pitched some really fun format changes for Dancing with the Stars by the executive producers but right now they are top secret. [Reality chief] Rob Mills and I had a meeting with them a couple of months ago and got very excited about some of the new ideas that they were talking about to freshen up the format. It’s still the show that audience knows and loves but they’ve got some good ideas in terms of how to surprise people in new ways."
