They're ba-aaack!

Dancing With the Stars' new season is just around the corner, ballroom lovers, and we're this close to learning which celebs will be competing. And to get fans really excited about the big reveal, which will happen on Aug. 30, the line-up of professional dancers was announced on Good Morning America on Tuesday morning. 

Appearing on GMA to chat about the new season was fan-favorite Val Chmerkovskiy, who is definitely returning for season 23 and said, "It's going to be amazing. We're going to have an incredible cast as always, but I'm also excited for the pros. We have a lot of different pros coming back. Some pros from back, back in the day, so I'm excited." 

Some of those returning pros? Gleb Savchenko, who only competed in one previous season with Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' Lisa Vandperump, is set to make his return to DWTS, but we're going to have to wait a little longer for the final list of pros, as only eight names were revealed on Tuesday, including Witney Carson, Artem Chigvintsev, Sharna Burgess, Lindsay Arnold and Sasha Farber.

Set to return after sitting out last season is Allison Holker, who gave birth to a baby boyMaddox Laurel Boss, in April, her first child with husband and So You Think You Can Dance star Stephen "tWitch" Boss. Definitely not returning? Reigning champ Peta Murgatroyd, who took home the mirrorball trophy with Nyle DiMarco, as she's expecting her first child with fiancé Maksim Chermkovskiy, a former DWTS pro. 

"It's a new show," Val said. "It's constantly evolving and we have a nice mix and balance of young kids that are inspired and very motivated to bring out the essence of this generation, but also we have some more classic, conservative dancers from the past as well, so I'm excited."

While no contestants have been officially announced yet, sources tell E! News that The Bachelorette's JoJo Fletcherand former Disney star Jake T. Austin will be putting on their dancing shoes, while Olympic gymnast Simone Biles told us that her busy schedule could prevent her from joining the cast this season (though she's hoping to join season 24). Definitely not joining DWTS? The Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice. ABC does not comment on casting rumors. 

The full cast, celebs and pros included, will be announced on Good Morning America on Aug. 30, with the season set to kick off on Monday, Sept. 12 on ABC.
