'Dancing With the Stars' season 24 news: Simone Biles, Mr. T, and Nick Viall join cast; new promo photos revealed
New photos featuring the star-studded cast of "Dancing With the Stars" season 24 have been released.
The hit ABC dancing show will return to the airwaves later this month, and the official promo photos of the cast with their ballroom partners were recently unveiled. The complete cast lineup for season 24 was announced on "Good Morning America" on Wednesday, along with the professional dancers they'll be pairing up with.
First on the list is "The Bachelor" star Nick Viall, who takes to the dance floor with Peta Murgatroyd. Olympic gold medalist Simone Biles will also be joining the cast opposite Sasha Farber, along with Fifth Harmony member Normani Kordei, who will be dancing with Valentin Chmerkovskiy.
In addition, former professional wrestler/actor Mr. T will try to win the mirror ball alongside Kym Herjavec. Bringing in the laughs to the ballroom this season is former "SNL" actor Chris Kattan and his partner Witney Carson. "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star Erika Jayne will compete for the championship with Gleb Savchenko, while legendary performer Charo and professional dancer Keo Motsepe will try to prove that she can still work the dancefloor even at 76.
Also competing this season is Nancy Kerrigan, who admits that joining the ABC show is a part of her bucket list. The Olympic figure skating legend will be dancing with Artem Chigvintsev, and she told E! News that she's been waiting for this opportunity since the show's 2005 debut.
"I mean, I've wanted to since the beginning," she said. "So it's just scheduling and wondering if my body can hold up because I've been falling for 40 years," Kerrigan added.
Other celebrities and their pro partners heating up the dancefloor this season include: NFL running back Rashad Jennings with Emma Slater, "Glee" actress Heather Morris with Maksim Chmerkovskiy, two-time World Series champion David Ross with Lindsay Arnold, and pro bull rider Bonner Bolton with Sharna Burgess.
The 24th season of "Dancing With the Stars" premieres on Monday, March 20, at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
