This year co-host Brooke Burke-Charvet is being replaced by former contestant Erin Andrews and dancing professional Maksim Chmerkovskiy will be rejoining the programme.
Brooke good-humouredly joked about her dismissal along with musical director Rob Wheeler and his 28-strong backing band's last month.
She wrote on Twitter: ''So much chatter bout DWTS. I'm really cool, everyoneI did my 7 seasons, had a blast! I'm ready for change. I love your loyalty. Thank you!
''Here's the skinny - the show found out Harold Wheeler, the band, Rob & me were putting together our own road show, so they fired us all! (sic)''
'Dancing With The Stars' kicks off on March 17 on ABC.
