Announced early Tuesday on ABC’s Good Morning America, the new batch of Mirrorball Trophy hopefuls includes … Mischa Barton!

Yes, the former star of The O.C. is back and hotter than ever!

Granted, it’s been a rapid fall from grace, but life is 10 percent what happens to you and 90 percent how you react to it. Or something.

Here’s hoping her career renaissance continues on DWTS!

Barton, 30, will be joined by another star of yore who has gone through plenty of ups and downs: Fuller House‘s Jodie Sweetin, 34!

Sweetin is partnered with pro Keo Motsepe on the new season of the hit show, while Barton will be dancing with Artem Chigvintsev.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kim Fields will also be putting on her dancing shows, and be paired with Sasha Farber this spring.

As for the obligatory athletes representing this season?

Doug Flutie, a former Heisman trophy winner and NFL quarterback turned NBC commentator, will be teaming with Karina Smirnoff.

Denver Broncos linebacker and Super Bowl 50 MVP Von Miller will be joining him, and dancing with Witney Carson. And that’s not all.

Finally, Pittsburgh Steelers receiver Antonio Brown is dancing with Sharna Burgess and UFC fighter Paige VanZant is with Mark Ballas.

Also competing for the Mirrorball are Geraldo Rivera (with Edyta Sliwinska), Good Morning America‘s Ginger Zee (with Val Chmerkovskiy).

America’s Next Top Model winner Nyle DiMarco is dancing with Peta Murgatroyd, and Boyz II Men singer Wanya Morris with Lindsey Arnold. 

Perhaps most randomly, actress, radio host and Donald Trump’s second ex-wife Marla Maples will be busting a move with Tony Dovolani.

Two big-name stars who will be absent in Season 22?

Six-time Mirrorball champion Derek Hough (including last season with Bindi Irwin) will skip Season 22 due to TV and Broadway commitments.

Meanwhile, sister Julianne Hough, a two-time winner and three-time judge on the popular program, will not return; Len Goodman will.

Who are you most excited for among the new cast?
