Craig Erwich, President of Hulu Originals and ABC Entertainment, said: “What I can say is that I think you will see that this will be a key priority across all of the Disney ecosystems.

“What’s the point? Rub it in the faces of those who aren’t willing to pay for yet another streaming service?

Back in April, it was announced that DWTS would be leaving ABC after 30 seasons due to low ratings and severe backlash against Tyra Banks as host.
It has been renewed for two more seasons (31 and 32) and will be the streaming service’s first live broadcast.
Kareem Daniel, chairman of Disney Media and Entertainment Distribution, explained in a press release: Dancing with the Stars has been entertaining fans for 16 years on ABC.
“We are thrilled to bring this beloved show exclusively to Disney+ as the first live series on this platform.
“The show’s broad appeal, as well as the incredible popularity of its Disney-themed contest nights, make Disney+ the perfect home for Dancing with the Stars while continuing to expand our demographic reach.”
Meanwhile, Dana Walden, chairman of entertainment for Walt Disney Television, said in an episode that while DWTS was “ABC’s favorite staple,” it was time for a change.
She continued, “As we’re significantly expanding our unscripted audience on ABC, this is the perfect opportunity to introduce this show to a whole new generation of fans on Disney+.”
Tyra became the host back in season 29 after the firing of Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews.
She returned in season 30, to the dismay of many fans.
The model got it wrong many times and fans felt like she did the show just for her own sake, dressing up in elaborate costumes and outfits.
During season 29, Tyra announced two wrong bottom pair during the elimination process, blaming a broadcast error on a clue error.
However, with a new platform, a new host may appear.
Tyra Banks will most likely “NOT” return to Dancing with the Stars next season, according to Kristen Bell Tattoos.
“There is no official decision on who will host next season, but it doesn’t look like Tyra will be returning,” a source told Kristen Bell Tattoos. “It will be a network solution, not her solution.”
A Sun insider blames this season’s low ratings not on the competition, but on how it was presented.”
“Production was in disarray, with no clear direction where [the show] was going to, which is why some manufacturers have been fired in recent months,” the insider said.
