It’s officially been confirmed that “Dancing With the Stars” is taking a break in Spring 2019 and won’t be returning to ABC again until at least the Fall TV block for Season 28.

According to People Magazine, the ABC series is confirmed to be skipping out on its usual spring cycle, news that was first rumored when longtime host Tom Bergeron shared on Instagram that they weren’t coming back. However, fans of the series who fear its fate shouldn’t be too worried, as it is still expected to come back later in the year for its wildly popular fall run.

As for why the show is taking a hiatus, no official reason is being given, though there are several factors that could be contributing.

“Dancing With the Stars” is officially not returning for a Spring 2019 season. Pictured are Season 27 champions Sharna Burgess and Bobby Bones with show hosts Erin Andrews and Tom Bergeron.

Though she is expected to still continue in her role as a judge on “DWTS” alongside Len Goodman and Bruno Tonioli when Season 28 does appear, Carrie Ann Inaba is taking her talents elsewhere, and has officially been confirmed as the replacement for Julie Chen on CBS’ “The Talk.” Inaba has filled in for the former host several times since she resigned in September following her husband, Les Moonves’ sexual misconduct scandal.

In addition, following the show crowning Bobby Bones as the winner of Season 27, some fans have called for a change to the show’s voting process, which gives equal weight to the judges’ scores and viewer votes, and allows for dancers like Bones to continue advancing in the competition—despite having far lower scores from the judges than any of his fellow finalists. Though it’s unlikely that the series would change its voting system now, a hiatus would allow producers to consider refreshing the format.

However, the show being off the schedule could also simply be due to scheduling issues. Season 26, which featured all athlete competitors, was shortened to just four weeks earlier this year in order to accommodate the first season of “American Idol” on the network. The singing competition series is coming back for a second run, and since the shortened “Athletes” edition didn’t sit well with fans, for the most part, it’s possible ABC didn’t want to try their luck with that version of the show again.

No word has been given on the fate of ABC’s other “DWTS” show, “Dancing With the Stars: Juniors,” which ended its freshman run this past Sunday and crowned Sky Brown and JT Church as winners.
