The brother and sister dancers will be heading back to the ballroom for the show’s 23rd season — him as a pro again and her back on the judge’s panel, according to EOnline.
“It frees me up to do some other things too, so it’s kind of fun,” Derek shared with E!, after the Singin’ In The Rain revival was pushed back.
He added, “Broadway’s one of my plans, it’s in my cards, it’s happening, but right now it’s leaving me open. Plans change a little bit, so now I have some time to create some fun opportunities, some fun things, including Hairspray.”
Derek will join Maksim Chmerkovskiy, Val Chmerkovskiy, Emma Slater, Sasha Farber, Witney Carson and Sharna Burgess, Artem Chigvintsev, Jenna Johnson, Lindsay Arnold, Allison Holker, and Gleb Savchenko on the pro roster.
