ABC this week confirmed that the next season of Dancing with the Stars will premiere this Fall, keeping its regular Monday night schedule with results shows on Tuesdays.

After 12 seasons, the reality competition continues to be one of the top-rated reality shows on television. Its return in the Fall continues the network's tradition of airing two seasons per calendar year - something it has been doing since the show's second season in 2006.

Season 12 of Dancing with the Stars will reveal its winner on May 24. Three contestants remain in the competition: Hines Ward, Chelsea Kane, and Kirstie Alley.
