Dancing With the Stars Season 17: Is Karina Smirnoff Returning? Looks Like It! (PHOTO)

Dancing With the Stars Season 17 is less than a month away, and the big cast reveal happens in a few weeks. However, one pro may have spilled the beans about her return: fan favorite Karina Smirnoff!

The seasoned pro showed no signs of not returning, but we were still relieved to see her recent Instagram pic. Posing with departed-for-now pro Kym Johnson and apparently-returning pro Cheryl Burke, she wrote, “We r back together!!! Really gonna miss @Kym_Johnson! @cherylburke and me r gonna have to hold the fort! #dwtssistasforever.”

While this is by no means an official announcement, we doubt that Karina would lie to us. A few months ago, Cheryl said, “as long as Dancing With the Stars wants to have me, I’ll be there,”  and from the looks of things, DWTS wants both of them back!

In addition to Cheryl and Karina, Derek Hough recently said he’s returning, and pros Sharna Burgess, Peta Murgatroyd, and Louis Van Amstel said they’d love to return as well. Unfortunately, Anna Trebunskaya and Chelsie Hightower won’t be back — at least not this season.

However, we’ll have to wait until the official Good Morning America announcement on September 4 to find out who’s in and who’s out. Do you want Karina and Cheryl back on the show? Sound off below!
