This season will only feature 10 couples in a shortened season of just four weeks as they all vie for the Mirror Ball. The 10 athletes and their pro partners will all be announced on GMA less than two and a half weeks before the competition begins on Monday, April 30 at 8/7c on ABC.

So far, Gleb Savchenko is the only professional dancer who has confirmed that he will be a part of the cast. As for the athletes themselves, it seems likely that at least one or two could be from the recent Winter Olympics, including stand-out figure skater Adam Rippon.
