“Dancing with the Stars” fans will pleased to hear that Karina Smirnoff is returning to the show!

Entertainment Weekly reports that the 37-year-old Mirror Ball Trophy winner will be back for Season 21.

Smirnoff took a break from the show to promote her book, “We’re Just Not That Into You: Dating Disasters from the Trenches,” and to star in the indie movie “Tango Shalom.”

“I was a little nervous about not dancing on the show at all last season. I was doing it for the last 10 years,” she told EW. “I had other things to do in my life, but not going back to the show felt like trying to see if I can walk on my own two feet! I’ve had obvious moments when I missed it.”

Val Chmerkovskiy and Witney Carson have also been confirmed, while the rest of the pros will likely be announced this week.

“Dancing with the Stars” returns Sept. 14 on ABC.
