When Does 'Dancing With the Stars' Start? And How to Watch It on Disney+

Dancing With the Stars is returning for Season 31, but this time things will look a little different on the ballroom competition program.

For the first time ever the ABC show is moving to Disney+, and there is a new co-host in the person of Alfonso Ribeiro.

The Fresh Prince of Bel Air actor, 50, will be joining Tyra Banks in fronting the new season of the long-running show, following his own Dancing With the Stars win back in 2014.

America's Next Top Model star Banks, 48, who has hosted the past two seasons of Dancing With the Stars, said presenting the series with her longtime friend is going to be "so much fun."

Along with all the changes to the show, the cast for the upcoming season has been announced, with stars like The Bachelorette Season 19's Gabby Windey, Ru Paul's Drag Race favorite Shangela and former Sex and the City actor Jason Lewis ready to take to the dancefloor.

How to Watch Dancing With the Stars 2022

For the past 16 years—and 30 seasons—Dancing With the Stars has aired on ABC. But this year, for the first time, the show, which will still be under the ABC umbrella, will stream live on Disney+.

Viewers will need a subscription to Disney+ to view the episodes, but the move to a streaming platform means there will be no commercial breaks.

A subscription to Disney+ is on offer until September 19. The deal gives subscribers one month of access for $1.99, with the price then going up to $7.99 a month after that. Disney+ can be streamed on your television, computer or tablet.
