‘Dancing with the Stars’ Season 22 Cast Rumors: Jodie Sweetin and More

The 22nd season of Dancing with the Stars is still a month and a half away, but rumors are already swirling about what celebrities may join the cast to dance for the Mirror Ball Trophy. Though rumors are always extremely iffy, especially this far away, there are a few names that keep popping up.

Us Weekly reports that Full House star Jodie Sweetin has signed on to compete in season 22. The actress is also a part of the Netflix reboot Fuller House, debuting on February 26. Not only did her TV sister Candace Cameron Bure previously appear on DWTS, but Maksim and Val Chmerkovskiy even filmed a guest appearance on Fuller House.

Another Netflix actress rumored to be on the show is Taryn Manning, one of the stars of Orange Is the New Black. The member of the SAG Award-winning cast plays Pennsatucky on the dramedy and, on January 27, she tweeted “#DWTS.” That was all she posted, leading some to believe that it was a tease that she will compete on season 22.

Yet another actress who has been subject to rumors for months is Italia Ricci. The 29-year-old star was the lead in ABC Family’s Chasing Life, and DWTS has a long history of taking actors from various ABC Family (now Freeform) shows.

Other potential dancers in the rumor mill include current Bachelor Ben Higgins (following in the footsteps of Jake Pavelka, Sean Lowe and Chris Soules), Olympic gymnast Dominic Moceanu, NFL players Rashad Jennings and Mike Tolbert and even reigning champion Bindi Irwin’s 12-year-old brother Robert, though that seems like a stretch.

All we know for sure is that Len Goodman will be back as the head judge. As for the pros, Sasha Farber tweeted on February 1 “It’s official so excited and happy!” The cryptic message has some speculating that the fan favorite troupe member may finally get a second chance to be a pro partner. He was paired with Snooki in season 17, but hasn’t been a pro partner for the past four seasons.

Dancing with the Stars season 22 premieres Monday, March 21 at 8pm on ABC.
