Dancing With the Stars has gone through major changes in the past year, but one thing has always remained constant: Celebs will (attempt to) dance, with the help of their amazing pro partners, and we’ll vote for our favorites to win.

Unless still another twist emerges, that will be the case again for DWTS Season 18, which starts on St. Patrick’s Day, Monday, March 17.

ABC just announced that the new cast will be revealed Tuesday, March 4 on Good Morning America. It was previously revealed that there will be 12 pairs, just like Season 17.

Usually co-hosts Tom Bergeron and Brooke Burke-Charvet announce the new cast together, but the latest change is Brooke’s own pre-season elimination. We’re down to one host (um, scratch that!), plus a new band. DWTS is still tweaking its formula in an attempt to regain viewers/ratings, even after ABC made the drastic move to cut the Results Show.

So things will look and feel a bit different this spring, but there will still be plenty of familiar faces — including the judges and our beloved pros. We can’t wait to see them again, and we’re curious about this mysterious Season 18 cast. They’ve kept a pretty tight lid on rumors this year, so hopefully they’re prepared to “wow” us with some great names.

Are you excited to meet the celeb cast this year, and find out which pros will lead them on their journey to many emotional breakdowns and breakthroughs?
