Less than a month from now, the Dancing With the Stars Season 17 cast will be revealed. ABC announced today that the dozen competing celebrities will be unveiled on Good Morning America on September 4, 2013 at 7 a.m. ET!

This is no surprise considering they always share casting on GMA, but it is later than usual — typically, we find out in August. Hopefully some of our dream picks will be cast, but either way, we’ll be counting down the days until we meet the new contestants.

For Season 17, there is a big format change, with DWTS shifting from two nights to a one-night, two-hour show, with eliminations happening at the end of the episode. This is determined by the judges’ scores and the public votes from the previous week.

The press release also notes that all three judges will be coming back: Len Goodman, Carrie Ann Inaba, and Bruno Tonioli. Tom Bergeron and Brooke Burke-Charvet will also return as hosts.
