The Grease: Live star, who started out as a DWTS pro and served on the judges’ panel for Seasons 20 and 21, will not be back to critique contestants this spring, TVLine has confirmed.
“I will miss being on the panel for Season 22, but have a lot of exciting stuff coming that I look forward to sharing,” Hough told People.com, which first reported the news. “The pro dancers, producers and crew at DWTS will always be my family.”
In Hough’s absence, the Season 22 dais will once again feature Carrie Ann Inaba, Bruno Tonioli and a returning Len Goodman, who sat out Season 21 due to a prior commitment.
