Halloween will also be a homecoming on Dancing With the Stars!

The ABC reality hit is set to welcome back three familiar faces in its spooky Halloween-themed outing on Oct. 27.

E! News has exclusively learned that co-host Erin Andrews will be returning to her duties after taking a break to cover the World Series for Fox, and fan favorite professional dancer Karina Smirnoff will also be back in the ballroom after an injury sidelined her for two weeks.

Also back in action? Head judge Len Goodman, who took a break from the judges' table for a few weeks, with special guests Pitbull, Jessie J and Kevin Hart filling in for him. 

While Andrews took a break to fulfill her duties as an MLB sideline reporter for Fox, former DWTS contestant and King of Queens star Leah Remini brought the laughs as Tom Bergeron's temporary co-host.  

"So excited to be back on the show, even more excited I don't have to dance!" Remini exclusively told us of returning to the ballroom. "I hope ABC has a delay, gonna speak my mind!"

And after the episode, Andrews tweeted Remini on a hosting job well done, writing, "Congrats @LeahRemini on an amazing job last night...Hearing amazing feedback on her ballroom work!"

DWTS fans are sure to be relieved to hear of Smirnoff returning to the show after suffering a serious injury, that resulted in a trip to the hospital. 

"She's in a lot of pain," Tony Dovolani told E! News after she hurt her wrist and shin during a group rehearsal. "I'm just hoping that it's not a break, that it's more like a scuff or something on her shin."

It looks like it's going to be a Happy Halloween for Dancing With the Stars fans after all!

DWTS airs Mondays at 8 p.m. on DWTS.
