Dancing with the Stars season 25 is almost here and the 13 new couples are starting their rehearsals. On Wednesday ABC officially revealed that reigning Mirror Ball champion Emma Slater will be competing with Property Brothers star Drew Scott. Now, according to PureDWTS, four other couples are known, including a face-off between two married couples.

We’ve already had reports that Nick and Vanessa Lachey, plus WWE diva Nikki Bella, will all compete on the upcoming season of DWTS. Now one more star can be added to that list: Jordan Fisher. The 23-year-old is a singer, actor and dancer who recently appeared on Broadway in the hit show Hamilton. He’s also a Disney alum, appearing on Liv and Maddie and the popular Teen Beach Movie films. He also co-starred with Julianne Hough in Grease Live as Doody.
According to PureDWTS, here are the pro partnerships for these four additional stars.
Nick Lachey and Peta Murgatroyd, Vanessa Lachey and Maksim Chmerkovskiy
It’s a bit obvious, but the husband and wife duo of Nick and Vanessa will be partnered with the husband and wife duo of Peta and Maks. That will inevitably be a huge storyline on the show, with a lot of segments about the rivalries between the couples.
Nikki Bella and Artem Chigvintsev
Artem has typically been paired with older women (Lea Thompson, Patti LaBelle, Maureen McCormick and Nancy Kerrigan), so getting a young, fit, athletic partner is a nice change of pace. However, Artem had his worst finish with his youngest partner, Mischa Barton, so let’s just hope Nikki isn’t that bad.
Jordan Fisher and Lindsay Arnold
Lindsay has been on a hot streak, reaching the Final 4 in the last four seasons in a row (with Alek Skarlatos, Wanya Morris, Calvin Johnson and David Ross). Jordan is a different kind of star for her and easily the most naturally talented when it comes to dance. It also helps that young male Disney stars typically do very well on this show, with James Maslow and Carlos PenaVega both making it to fourth place while Corbin Bleu, Riker Lynch and Kyle Massey all finished in second.
