‘Dancing with the Stars’ 2020 pros cast, premiere date set for Season 29

It’s time to dance.

“Dancing With the Stars” has revealed its cast for 2020’s Season 29 — and it includes the first black female pro and guidelines for keeping the cast safe during the COVID-19 pandemic.

On Tuesday, “Good Morning America” revealed the full list of pros, including three married couples competing against each other: Valentin Chmerkovskiy and his wife Jenna Johnson; Sasha Farber and his wife Emma Slater; and Pasha Pashkov and wife Daniella Karagach (a first-time pro).

The season will also feature Britt Stewart (the show’s first ever black female pro), returning fan favorites such as Sharna Burgess and Keo Motsepe, and returning champions Cheryl Burke and Peta Murgatroyd, last season’s champ, Alan Bersten, and Brandon Armstrong and Gleb Savchenko.

Past season judges Carrie Ann Inaba, Len Goodman and Bruno Tonioli will return.

After previous host Tom Bergeron and former co-host Erin Andrews stepped back following their 28-season run, Tyra Banks will take over —  marking the show’s first African-American female host.

In order to include safe social distancing guidelines for the coronavirus pandemic, the show is implementing a rule that each pro must live apart. That’s right, even the married couples have to be split up for the duration of the season.

“It’s going to be so different because we can’t actually interact and even prep with each other, which is something completely different, but we’re doing everything we can to keep safe. There’s going to be a lot of FaceTiming,” Emma Slater told GMA.

The celeb contestants will be announced at a later date.

Season 28 of “Dancing with the Stars” premieres Sept. 14 on ABC.
