Dancing With the Stars will not air in spring 2019
Dancing With the Stars, which has long aired two seasons per calendar year, is skipping a Spring 2019 cycle, TVLine has confirmed.
The dancing competition will not return for its usual spring season in 2019, but instead will reportedly air in the fall.
The switch up comes after a controversial 27th season in which multiple well-scored frontrunners were eliminated prematurely and the Mirrorball was ultimately awarded to country radio DJ Bobby Bones, despite his lower scores compared to the other competitors.
The finale results caused an uproar among the show viewers, prompting many fans to call for a change to the show’s voting structure.
Dancing With the Stars, which premiered back in 2005 and has spanned 27 seasons over 13 years, is not the only change on the schedule this upcoming season.
A Million Little Things is moving to Thursdays at 9 p.m. starting January 17, taking over the post-Grey’s Anatomy slot until Station 19 returns on March 7, when it will also be joined by the return of For the People at 10 p.m.
Whiskey Cavalier, the new show starring Scott Foley and Lauren Cohan, will debut Wednesday, February 27 at 10 p.m., while The Fix premieres Monday, March 18 at 10 p.m. The Goldbergs spinoff, Schooled, will make its debut on Wednesday, January 9 at 8:30 p.m., right after the return of The Goldbergs at 8 p.m.
