Seven drops first look at the 2022 Dancing With The Stars: All Stars

Dancing With The Stars: All Stars will return to Seven and 7Plus in 2022, and the network has now shared a first look at the new season.

 The contestants will face the judgment of returning panel Todd McKenney, Paul Mercurio, Helen Richey and Mark Wilson.

In September, the network revealed the lineup full of former series winners and contestants for next year.

Previous winners including TV personality Grant Denyer (Season 4, 2006), actress Bridie Carter (Season 7, 2007) and former AFL players David Rodan (Season 14, 2014) and Anthony Koutoufides (Season 5, 2006) will all return in 2022.

Daryl Somers and Sonia Kruger will once again host the format, with other returning stars to include singer-songwriter Ricki-Lee (Season 14, 2014), The Morning Show co-host Kylie Gillies (Season 9, 2009) and entertainer Courtney Act (Season 16, 2019).

Actress Olympia Valance (Season 16, 2019), reality TV star Angie Kent (Season 17, 2020) and actor and entertainer Rob Mills (Season 9, 2009) are also on board.

There are some wildcard contestants making their Dancing With The Stars debuts. They include Sunrise weatherman Sam Mac, model and TV presenter Kris Smith, music artist Deni Hines and actor Cameron Daddo.

Dancing With The Stars: All Stars lineup 2022

Dancing With The Stars: All Stars is produced by Warner Bros International Television Production Australia and BBC Studios, from a format created by the BBC and distributed by BBC Studios.

The format returned to Seven in 2021 as Dancing With The Stars: All Stars, after Ten chose not to renew it. Prior to that, the program ran for 15 seasons on Seven between 2004 and 2016.

The decision paid off, as the format delivered its biggest launch since 2015 and brought in solid linear metro ratings throughout the season, culminating in a winner reveal watched by 827,000 metro viewers.

Seven Network programming director, Angus Ross, said: “The first season of All Stars was the perfect mix of entertainment, celebrity and fierce competition, proving a stand-out hit with Australian audiences. 

“We have a fantastic cast ready to hit the dance floor for season two. With a history of multiple perfect scores in the ranks, it’s going to be a brilliant series.”
