maksim chmerkovskiy returning dancing with the stars Maksim Chmerkovskiy returning to 'Dancing With the Stars'?Maksim Chmerkovskiy took some time off from “Dancing With the Stars” last fall, but now it sounds as though he’ll be lacing up his boogie shoes once again.

Sources tell TooFab that Chmerkovskiy was seen leaving a meeting with “DWTS” execs Wednesday (Feb. 26) and that it’s “a done deal” that he’ll be back on the popular dancing reality competition.

There are no details offered as to whether he’s back for good or just Season 18, but he’ll be reunited with his Season 10 partner Erin Andrews, who is replacing Brooke Burke-Charvet as co-host.

Maks has never won the mirror ball trophy, so perhaps this is his year. The new cast of “Dancing With the Stars” will be announced Tuesday, March 4 on “Good Morning America.”
