Julianne Hough and Derek Hough: Both Returning to Dancing with the Stars!

by at .

Dancing with the Stars just got a whole lot better looking.

According to E! News, both Julianne Hough and Derek Hough will make their returns to the ABC competition this fall, ensuring an uptick of drool on living room floors around the nation.

Because both are really attractive, that's our point.

Derek Hough will be the partner of one very lucky contestant on Season 23, while Julianne Hough will once again serve as a judge.

This sadly means she'll have less time this fall to head out on to the water with friends and show fans her naked butt.

We're not being crass. We're just explaining something that happened last week.

ABC does not comment on casting for the show, but E! News insists it has this information from a reliable source.

We'll know for absolute certain on August 30 when Good Morning America comes out with the full cast list for Season 23.

"It's kind of fun," Derek told E! of Dancing with the Stars, adding:

"Broadway's one of my plans, it's in my cards, it's happening, but right now it's leaving me open. Plans change a little bit, so now I have some time to create some fun opportunities, some fun things, including Hairspray."

Indeed, Hough will also be starring in NBC's Hairspray Live! as Corny Collins this year.

With this decision, Hough joins fellow professional movers and shakers Maksim and Val Chmerkovskiy,  Gleb Savchenko, Witney Carson, Artem Chigvintsev, Sharna Burgess, Lindsay Arnold and Sasha Farber on Season 23.

Derek is a six-time program champion who last conquered all comes with Bindi Irwin as his partner on Season 21.

As for his gorgeous sister?

Julianne is returning for her third season as Dancing with the Stars panelist after sitting out Season 22.

After she left last year, producer Rob Wade made it very clear that she could return at any time.

"Julianne will always be a part of the Dancing with the Stars family and we hope to see her back in the ballroom in the future," he told People Magazine.

As for the sort of famous dancers who Julianne will be judging and Derek either teaming with or trying to take down?

Thus far, Amber Rose, Ryan Lochte, Kenneth "Babyface" Edmonds, Terra Jole, Jake T. Austin and JoJo Fletcher have been rumored for the competition.

Simone Biles, who would clearly have won if she entered, said her schedule won't permit her to participate on Season 23.

But it sounds as if she may very well take part on Season 24 this spring, meaning no other star should bother showing up. She's going to win.

Tell us: are you psyched to have both Hough siblings back where they belong?
