Maks is back, ladies! The Dancing With The Stars bad boy will be returning for season 18 and he is just one of the big changes going down on the show. The new season premieres March 17, 2014 and there will be a new co-host … Erin Andrews. Andrews actually partnered with Maksim Chmerkovskiy in season 11 and came in third place, so watching their interaction should be fun.
In 2012, Maks left DWTS to pursue other paths in his career, though he did return to the show twice since his exit. Maks came back for a guest appearance in season 16 and was a guest judge on the show last season.
Us Weekly reports:
While the exact details of his contract remain unknown, Chmerkovskiy was photographed Wednesday, Feb. 26, leaving a meeting with DWTS executives, where an insider tells Us the deal was arranged.
