Raise your 10 paddles for this unexpected good news.

The official Dancing With the Stars Twitter account, @DancingABC, tweeted earlier this morning, “Dance alert! The new cast of Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars will be announced on Friday, July 27! Are you ready for this?! ‪#DWTS”

Totally ready! But that’s pretty early, considering the last two fall seasons were revealed in late August. Maybe they want to get a jump on rumors — or maybe The Powers That Be are just so darn excited about whoever they cast, they want us to know as soon as possible. Anyway, it sounds like we know what host Tom Bergeron was tweeting about back on July 11 when he wrote, “In just a few weeks, DWTS fans will be getting a sweet summer treat! ‪#DWTS.”

So mark your calendars for only a week and a half from today — and cross your fingers that DWTS casts a strong group of All-Stars and not just people to create headlines and discord amongst the fans.

Dancing With the Stars airs Mondays and Tuesdays on ABC.
