Episode 2501: Dancing with the Stars is back with a new, dynamic cast of celebrities who are ready to hit the ballroom floor and celebrate the show’s landmark 25th season. The competition begins with the two-hour season premiere, live, Monday, September 18 (8:00-10:01 p.m. EDT), on The ABC Television Network.
