dancing with the stars season 18 cast announcement abc 'Dancing with the Stars' Season 18 cast: 'Good Morning America' announcement date

The “Dancing with the Stars” Season 18 cast will be announced during “Good Morning America” on Tuesday, March 4. The ABC morning show will also identify the professional dance partners for each of the celebrities trying for the Mirror Ball Trophy.

But which stars might appear that morning? While rumors have been unusually quiet during the lead-up to Season 18, a few names — from Bruce Jenner to Cody Simpson — have surfaced. Check out the rumor round-up below.

Oscar winners: Early rumors suggested that “Dancing with the Stars” wanted an Oscar-winner/nominee season. That doesn’t seem particularly likely at this point, as no specific stars have been rumored. 

Bruce Jenner: US Weekly reports that the “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star (and former Olympic gold medalist) is set to go on the dance floor for Season 18.

Cody Simpson: The Australian pop star tweeted that “Dancing with the Stars” asked him to join the Season 18 cast in December.

Carla Hall: The “Top Chef” and “The Chew” host repeatedly wants on “Dancing with the Stars,” according to her fans.

Kelly Brook: The British model/actress (and friend of champion pro Derek Hough) is a reported choice for the season.

“Dancing with the Stars” Season 18 premieres Monday, March 17 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
