Fans of the show have already heard about other members of the cast even though the news was not official.

The entire cast will be revealed on "GMA" on Wednesday, September 6. Terrell said the timing is right for him, so he was glad to agree to become Cheryl's partner. He indicated that the rehearsals are going well so far.

The former NFL wide receiver has played football with the San Francisco 49ers, the Philadelphia Eagles, the Dallas Cowboys, the Buffalo Bills, the Cincinnati Bengals, the Allen Wranglers, and the Seattle Seahawks. Two years ago, Owens, 43, said in an interview that he has not officially retired. He said he stays in shape because he is not sure whether he will return to the NFL.

The two-time champion says she is going to leave it all on the dance floor this season because she has not won since Season 2 with Drew Lachey and Season 3 with Emmitt Smith. Cheryl believes this landmark season is her time to win again. She says she really wants the newly designed Mirror Ball trophy that is fancier than the ones presented to winners in past seasons.

This will be Cheryl's 20th season being a professional coach. She is returning after taking last season off. Her last partner was Olympian swimmer Ryan Lochte. They didn't win the competition. Instead, they ended up in seventh place.
