The rumor mill was flying earlier in the year, with reports that Len Goodman, Carrie Ann Inaba, and Bruno Tonioli would not all be returning for Season 17. But now that the premiere is fast approaching (September 16), we're starting to hear more about the upcoming judges panel.

When Bruno was asked by a fan if he'll be returning to DWTS, he tweeted, "@Maria2therescue of course miss my American friends and fans will be back soon x. B."

Plus, Bruno's not the only familiar face who's confirmed for next season. Carrie Ann tweeted earlier in the month that she will also be back, so we're just waiting on Len.

But don't fret just yet, Len lovers. The New York Post reported that all three judges will stay and that there will be a fourth judge added to the mix. What do you think would be best for the ballroom? Weigh in below!

Catch the Dancing With the Stars Season 17 premiere on Monday, September 16, 2013 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
