ABC Confirms That 'Dancing With The Stars Junior' is Still In The Works

Dancing With The Stars Junior is STILL happening!!!

Word comes from TVGuide who asked ABC Entertainment President Channing Dungey about the projected spinoff of the flagship US show — and she confirmed that it is still in the works.

“We were in the early stages of talent search for Dancing Junior and it wasn’t going to come together as quickly as we would have liked,” she shared.

While there was a little delay on the Junior spinoff, the all-athletes edition came together much quicker.

“We’d been talking for awhile about trying to do an all-sports edition, but the problem is that athletes have such tight schedules it’s hard to do a whole 13-week run,” she adds. “This actually slotted in perfectly, so we’re going to try that and see how it goes.”

If ABC needs suggestions on DWTS Junior, we have some perfect celebs for them.

Cheryl Burke Says There Still May Be 'DWTS Junior'

Cheryl Burke Says There Still May Be 'DWTS Junior'

Just a few days ago, we all heard from Dancing With The Stars host Tom Bergeron that the junior series wouldn’t be happening — was replaced with all-athlete version for the upcoming spring.

Now, pro Cheryl Burke, is saying that the off shoot of the series still might be happening.

In her blog for US Weekly, Cheryl writes that it’s in talk for “the summer” and she’d love to be a part of it.

“I’d love to come back for that as a judge,” she adds. “Coming fresh off Dance Moms and being a kid myself when I started ballroom, I think I would be the perfect judge. I know exactly what these kids are going through because I went through it, and I know how to handle kids from what I saw on Dance Moms. I’d love to be part of both shows.”

Crossing fingers it WILL happen!

DWTS Host Tom Bergeron Hints That 'Dancing With The Stars Junior' Might Not Be Happening After All

Way back in May, JJJ was ecstatic to hear that Dancing With The Stars would be getting a spinoff series focusing on celeb kids and kids of celebrities.

However, it doesn’t look like that might actually be happening after all.

In a series of tweets this afternoon, host Tom Bergeron hinted that Dancing With The Stars Junior would be replaced with a mini-season of the main show, which would be just four weeks long.

“Season 26 of @DancingABC will be next Fall. The 4 week mini-season in the Spring is a bite size, spray tanned spin-off,” he told a fan about the show’s plans.

Tom added, “There will be a mini-Spring season (4 Weeks). Not “DWTS Junior.” More info Tuesday.”

Hmmm, we’re very curious about what will be happening now — especially since we already have a dream cast list!
