Critics once said that "Dancing With The Stars" won't last for long. But apparently, they are wrong! The show is now on its 25th season with the opening night set on Sept. 18, 8 p.m. Monday on ABC.

Viewers are excited for the silver season with Tom Bergeron as host and Erin Andrews as the co-host. The four judges Len Goodman, Carrie Ann Inaba, Bruno Tonioli and Julianne Hough will also return for the new season. Although Cheryl Burke and Mark Ballas were gone for some seasons, they will be back in season 25.

The celebrities of the silver season have a mix of athletes, television personalities, singers, actors, and others.

Each of them will be dancing with a professional who will help them claim the MirrorBall Trophy.
