Dancing With The Stars comes back for another season on September 19. However, there’s one major change that fans aren’t quite looking forward to. After 30 seasons, ABC will no longer host the show this fall. Instead, Dancing With The Stars will stream live episodes on Disney+ instead. Several fans are not at all happy about this change and they’re making their voices heard.
Dancing With The Stars fans sound off on social media
The official Dancing With The Stars Facebook page recently put out a teaser featuring some of the pro dancers. It seemed like the goal was to get fans hyped up for the new season. While many DWTS fans agreed it was nice to see promo photos featuring the dancers again, they just can’t get excited about the new season.
Many Dancing With The Stars fans enjoyed the show when it was free to watch on ABC. Disney+ charges a paid subscription rate, which means that many viewers are going to fall off. Although streaming platforms gained a lot of traction over the last several years, older audience members don’t always use them. Many other fans just can’t afford another streaming service.
No matter what their reasons are, many DWTS fans readily admitted they won’t be watching this season.
For the past several years, the DWTS team continued to make choices that just don’t go over well with fans. After they fired Tom Bergeron, it seems like the execs are struggling to keep viewers tuning in week after week.
Carrie Ann Inaba takes time to address angry comments
“Just reading all your comments yesterday. I am so grateful for the words of [encouragement] and the sharing of your own journeys. It helps others to know that we are all going through unique journeys… and we all have challenges in our lives,” Carrie Ann wrote. “I’m heartbroken to hear so many people saying they won’t be joining us on dwts this season. We’ve always been a family for so long…All of us, the dancers, the hosts, the judges, the production team, the creatives and hair and make up and stylists and lighting and set design…. And YOU. I hope you will be able to stay connected to us. I will be posting lots of content from my socials so I hope that will help you stay connected. Family is forever.”
Do you agree with other fans online? Will you tune into Dancing With The Stars this year or will you watch something else instead? Be sure to leave your thoughts in the comments and share your ideas with others.
