ABC does not comment on casting decisions for the show, but the full lineup will be revealed in an official announcement on Good Morning America on Aug. 30.

Although Olympic golden girl Simone Biles has been approached to join the cast as well, she told E! News last week that she didn't think scheduling would work out for this season thanks to her gymnastics tour obligations.

"I would love to do Dancing with the Stars, but so far we have a three month tour after this Olympics," Simone exclusively told E! News' Zuri Hall at the P&G Family Home in Rio. "I'm not sure if I'll have time."

The 19-year-old gymnast, who won four gold medals and a bronze in the Rio Olympics, says we'll just have to wait for season 24 in 2017. "I would really love to do it in the spring if that's possible," she added. She' be in good company, considering her teammate Aly Raisman competed in season 16, Shawn Johnson won season eight and Nastia Liukin competed in season 20.

Dancing With the Stars season 23 premieres Monday, Sept. 12 at 8 p.m. on ABC.
