The new season of “Dancing With the Stars” is slated to begin in late September 2023 — or early October — an insider told The Hollywood Reporter.

On May 16, 2023, TVLine reported that season 32 will air on ABC on Monday nights in the 8 p.m. Eastern time slot.

But exactly when it starts remains to be seen, ABC Entertainment senior VP Ari Goldman told The Hollywood Reporter‘s “TV’s Top 5” podcast on May 19. The fall television lineup for primetime TV on ABC will begin on September 25, 2023 — the third week of September, traditionally known as Premiere Week — “give or take a week or two,” Goldman said.

Season 32 of ‘Dancing With the Stars’ Could Premiere in October

Goldman noted that “we do have a number of NFL games to start the season in concert with ESPN,” since DWTS and Monday Night Football will air on the same night.

Entertainment reporter Krystin Burtt also pointed out that the Primetime Emmys will air on September 18, 2023, leading her to speculate the DWTS premiere will be on October 2.

An official announcement about the “Dancing With the Stars” premiere date is expected sometime over the summer. As is tradition, the cast will start rehearsing a few weeks before the premiere and will be officially announced on “Good Morning America.”

When it does premiere, those wishing to stream the show live will be able to do so on Disney+. In addition, the show will be available to Hulu subscribers the following day. ABC and Disney+ have not indicated whether they will add in Tuesday night episodes later on in the season or if the show will be shifted whenever there’s an NFL game.

So far, the only person who has been rumored to join the season 32 cast is Ariana Madix from “Vanderpump Rules” fame.

‘The Golden Bachelor’ Is Set to Air After ‘Dancing With the Stars’

A senior “Bachelor” spinoff has been rumored for quite some time, and ABC announced on May 16 that the first season is set to air in the fall as part of the network’s new lineup.

“The Golden Bachelor” will air at 10 p.m. Eastern, right after “Dancing With the Stars,” which Goldman told “TV’s Top 5” is “going to be a fantastic lead-in.”

“After more than 20 years of fostering young love on ‘The Bachelor,’ ‘The Bachelorette’ and ‘Bachelor in Paradise,’ ‘The Golden Bachelor’ showcases a whole new kind of love story — one for the golden years,” reads the show’s description on ABC’s official website.

“On this all-new unscripted series, one hopeless romantic is given a second chance at love in the search for a partner with whom to share the sunset years of life. The women arriving at the mansion have a lifetime of experience, living through love, loss and laughter, hoping for a spark that ignites a future full of endless possibilities. In the end, will our Golden man turn the page to start a new chapter with the woman of his dreams?”

The network has yet to announce who the first lead will be.
