‘Dancing With the Stars’ goes from ABC to Disney+

LOS ANGELES (AP) — “Dancing With the Stars” will waltz away from its longtime ABC home and onto the Disney+ streaming service, the network’s corporate sibling.

The contest series, which debuted on the broadcast network in 2005, will be on Disney+ starting this fall in the United States and Canada, the company announced Friday.

It will be the first live-action series on Disney+, said Kareem Daniel, president of Disney Media and Entertainment Distribution. The program received a two-season order from Disney+.

“The show’s broad appeal, along with the overwhelming popularity of its Disney-themed competition nights, makes Disney+ the perfect home for ‘Dancing With the Stars’ while continuing to expand our demographic reach,” Daniel said in a statement.

The platform change comes as ABC considers next season’s NFL games to air on Monday night, the period that belongs to “Dancing With the Stars.”

The dance competition is also part of the family programming that Disney+ has focused on as part of the competitive and crowded streaming market.
