Dancing with the Stars premiered in 2005 on ABC, but Walt Disney Television executive Dana Walden said the popular show leaving its original network supports ABC's initiative to "significantly" expand its unscripted slate.
"This is a great opportunity to introduce this show to a whole new generation of fans on Disney+," Dana explained.
Dancing with the Stars Season 30 judge Carrie Ann Inaba, 54, gushed on her Instagram Story, according toUs Weekly, "Did you hear the news?... We're gonna be the first live streaming competition show in the United States and we're gonna be on Disney+ and that's really exciting."
"Dancing with the Stars has always been a little bit of a trailblazer," she added. "Not a little bit, but you know, who knew? Ballroom dancing, way back when?"
Carrie Ann -- who has been a judge on Dancing with the Stars since the show's 2005 premiere, which also featured Bruno Tonioli and Len Goodman on the judging panel -- said it's been an "honor" to be a part of such an "incredible team."
"And it's so exciting to see it evolve into next steps and the future, so if you don't have your subscription for Disney+, you might wanna get one because we're gonna be live! Yep!" Carrie Ann added.
