ABC won't air a spring Dancing with the Stars following Season 27 controversy
Since its second season in 2006, Dancing with the Stars has aired two seasons every calendar year. But there won't be two in 2019. Following a 2018 that saw an abbreviated four-week spring all-athletes edition and the controversial fall Season 27 winner Bobby Bones, ABC has decided to skip a spring 2019 edition. "Though it’s not yet clear what prompted the competition series to sit out a midseason run, Dancing is coming off a controversial 27th season," reports TVLine's Rebecca Iannucci . "After multiple well-scored frontrunners were eliminated prematurely (including R&B singer Tinashe and Fuller House actor Juan Pablo Di Pace), the Mirrorball was ultimately awarded to country radio DJ — and very dark horse — Bobby Bones, who had scored much lower than his three fellow finalists." She adds there's no word on the future of Dancing with the Stars: Juniors, which aired simultaneously with Season 27.
