In a huge shakeup for the entertainment industry, a popular, long-running series is leaving network television after 30 seasons on the air and becoming a Disney+ exclusive.
That’s right, Dancing with the Stars is moving to Disney+:
DWTS has received a two-year pickup — for Seasons 31 and 32 — and will debut exclusively on Disney+ this fall in the U.S. and Canada, becoming the first live series to debut on the service. It is also believed to be the first live streaming reality show in the U.S., marking another milestone for direct-to-consumer platforms.
The reality competition series will be Disney+’s first livestreamed series. The service had previously tested livestreaming in February with the announcement of the 2022 Oscar nominations.
