It looks like the new season of Dancing With The Stars will in fact include Derek Hough however, this time he will be on the show as a Judge. He's taking the place of Len Goodman, who, thanks to the pandemic, won't be making the trip from the U.K. to the U.S. to film the show. Len will still be involved, although it's unclear what he's doing.
Derek first joined"Dancing"as a guest instructor on Season Four . . . and was basically a mainstay up through Season 23 in 2016. He's won a record SIX times, came in second twice, and third once.
