** For the pros, Kym Johnson returned in season 20 as a professional dancer after taking three seasons off to judge the Australian version of the show. One season later, Karina Smirnoff, Louis van Amstel and Anna Trebunskaya all returned, although they didn't exactly last long in the competition. Season 22 brought back Edyta Sliwinska, after an eleven-season absence, who ended up being the first eliminated pro. It's not uncommon nowadays for pros from earlier seasons to come back; season 23 has Cheryl Burke, Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Derek Hough returned after some absences on the show.

Of those three, only Maks returned for season 24 as a competing pro (Cheryl and Derek did make appearances, but just as guest performers promoting their respective tours, ''Love on the Floor'' and ''Move Beyond''). Season 24 also saw the surprising return of Kym, who reportedly only agreed to come back due to being offered Mr. T as her partner.
