How to watch old seasons of dancing with the stars

How to Watch 'Dancing With the Stars' Season 31 on Disney+

Kelli Boyle

Dancing With the Stars is making a huge move this fall. The reality competition series, formerly on ABC for 16 years, will air live exclusively on Disney+ starting in September. Season 31 will premiere Monday, September 19 on the streaming service, airing live starting at 8 pm ET/5 pm PT. So how can you watch Dancing With the Stars when it makes its switch from broadcast to streaming? Here, we’ve compiled everything you need to know for how to tune in.

Dancing With the Stars Season 31 is the first-ever live reality show on U.S. streaming platforms. It will be co-hosted by Tyra Banks and Season 19 winner Alfonso Ribiero, with Carrie Ann Inaba, Len Goodman, Bruno Tonioli, and Derek Hough set to return as judges. The season will air without ad breaks, aligning with Disney+’s current policy of having no ads on the platform. But that will change on December 8, when the company launches its ad-supported tier called Disney+ Basic, although DWTS is expected to be concluded by then.

Viewers can likely expect the episodes to be ad-free all season long this time around. It’s not yet known if Season 32, already a go at Disney+, will air live with ads through Disney+ Basic. While an exact air time on September 19 has not yet been announced, Dancing With the Stars aired Mondays at 8/7c on ABC.

Dancing With the Stars is produced in front of a live audience by BBC Studios’ Los Angeles production arm. The show will look like its previous iterations, with professional dancers and celebrities paired to take on dance challenges (including Disney-themed nights), the one major change being the lack of commercial breaks.

“No commercials from a production standpoint is going to be the biggest challenge for us,” showrunner Conrad Green tells TV Insider. “We’re used to having 4-to-5-minute breaks to change the stage. It’s now as live as live can be. It’s like doing a Broadway production. You’ve got to get all of your teams sympatico. You might see the odd set piece moving around in the back but we’re hoping to make it as smooth as possible.”

Disney+ is available as a standalone streaming service or as part of The Disney Bundle that gives subscribers access to Disney+, Hulu, and ESPN+. The streamer says The Disney Bundle is the best way to tune into Season 31, although it seems all viewers will need to watch the show is a Disney+ account. For more information about the bundle, visit, or find the Disney+ app on most mobile and connected TV devices.

Dancing with the Stars has been a beloved staple on ABC for 30 seasons and brought so much joy to millions of viewers,” Dana Walden, Chairman of Entertainment, Walt Disney Television, said in a statement. “As we’re significantly expanding our unscripted slate at ABC, this is a great opportunity to introduce this show to a whole new generation of fans on Disney+. We’re so grateful to our incredible partners at BBC Studios and look forward to continuing our relationship with them on this spectacular series, which will continue to be overseen by Rob Mills and the talented Walt Disney Television Alternative team.”

Green also executive produces the series with Deena Katz. Past seasons of Dancing With the Stars are currently available for streaming on Hulu.

Dance like no one is watching: why the new season of Dancing with the Stars is beautiful but the presenter is spoiled

Olga Dubro

TV Mag Browser

After a four-year pause, project "Dancing with the Stars" returned to the TV channel "Russia 1". TV Mag reviewer Olga Dubro watched the premiere of the new season to summarize: Andrei Malakhov does not paint the show, and Evgeny Papunaishvili dances better than he fishes in the ocean.

Among the talent shows that have thrived on television, three stand out:0086 TNT and "Dancing with the Stars" to "Russia 1". The popularity of the latter is evidenced by the number of seasons - on Sunday the 11th season started since 2006. They have been waiting for him for four years, and for a triumphant return they chose a unique time of general isolation, when meeting with friends is remembered as a luxury from a past life, and the most exciting trip that you can afford is to a convenience store. Industry giants around the world are canceling filming, and here is a whole show, and even live. Just a holiday! Or a smart move by producers to draw even more attention to the premiere, while other channels show old films and long-shot series. Skype training, temperature checks during runs and a hall without spectators are all very unusual, of course, but not the only thing that distinguishes this season from previous ones. Now the show is hosting Andrey Malakhov , who is able to make "Let them talk" even from the morning news. There are no spectators in the hall, no one interrupts, so why yell into the microphone like that?

The composition of the jury has also been updated. The company of the permanent judge of the competition Nikolai Tsiskaridze is now the host of the previous seven seasons Daria Zlatopolskaya , a veteran of dance shows Yegor Druzhinin and Garik Rudnik , whom viewers know from the work of the choreographer in Dances on TNT.

The show has always gathered a mix of stars of different scales - some are known throughout the country, others are not well known at all. This time women are responsible for popularity: almost all faces and names are recognizable, there is someone to cheer for. Actress Comedy Woman Ekaterina Varnava , ex-inspector Elena Flying , host of the TV channel "Friday!" Maria Ivakova , actresses Maria Poroshina, Alena Babenko and Daria Moroz . After two seasons, "Kept Women" viewers are already accustomed to seeing the latter without clothes, but even here she was able to surprise by appearing in a gnome costume. The strong star half consists entirely of actors: Ivan Stebunov, Artem Tkachenko, Alexander Molochnikov, Andrey Chernyshov, Pyotr Romanov and the sex symbol of perestroika times Andrey Sokolov .

The partners of the stars on the project are also not just trainers from a fitness center. Evgeny Papunaishvili is already a full-fledged star himself. In addition to the fact that he trampled on the parquet in all previous seasons of Dancing with the Stars, having had a short romance with Ksenia Sobchak behind the scenes, right now you can watch him eating cockroaches with appetite in The Last Hero. I must say that Eugene dances in every way better than chopping coconuts. Among his parquet colleagues are world champions, masters of sports, international category judges, and generally not the last people in the dance world.

Watch the show Dancing with the Stars. New season" on TV channel "Russia 1" on Sundays at 17:30

And if the stars were lucky with partners about the same (no one doubts their preparation), then professional dancers were in an unequal position. For example, Ekaterina Varnava is far from being a novice in dancing and she herself could take the place of a choreographer. Therefore, it is not surprising that their pair with Denis Tagintsev scored the most points. But Andrei Sokolov, for example, moves a little more gracefully than a coat hanger, and Ekaterina Osipova had to start learning from the basics.

But the jury has a good word for everyone. For Barnabas, Yegor Druzhinin saved "stooped and clumsy", but he noted how Sokolov was able to deftly give his partner a hand. The extreme degree of refereeing loyalty is a feature of all competitions with the participation of stars. The jury is not eager to criticize colleagues in show business, compensating for one tiny remark with a dozen compliments.
