The Bad Boy of the Ballroom, Maksim Chmerkovskiy, may not be done with Dancing With the Stars after all, according to ABC's President of Entertainment.
Paul Lee said that after a one-season hiatus, the 33-year-old Ukrainian sensation may be returning for the upcoming 17th season of the hit competition.
"Maks is part of the family," Lee said at the Television Critics Association's press tour. "He may well be back. We love having him be part of the show."
This latest news may come to a surprise to fans. In February 2013, Chmerkovskiy explained why his name was left out of the Season 16 cast lineup.
"I just want to set the record straight to all of my amazing fans that I will unfortunately not be returning for this season of Dancing With the Stars," he said.
