Dancing With the Stars Season 16 will premiere on March 18 — and this cast is going to be crucial.
 
After Season 15 All-Stars wasn’t quite the ratings bonanza the network wanted, whispers emerged about possibly cutting the fall season. Thankfully, the ABC boss said they still expected to keep two seasons a year, but we know things can be reconfigured if Season 16 isn’t a hit. So this cast really has to have a “wow” factor. It needs to bring back some old fans who may have left DWTS for some reason, and prompt new viewers to tune in for the must-see entertainment.

The casts for the past few spring seasons were revealed near the end of February, so we can probably expect something similar this time — with casting rumors trickling in a few weeks in advance.

As @DWTSGossip added yesterday: "It looks like the new cast will be announced on @gma during Feb. sweeps." We should expect to hear a more official Good Morning America date any day now, but at least that’s a start. It’s soon!
