Derek Hough will reportedly not be competing on this spring's 22th season of "Dancing with the Stars."

Sources told news outlets the 30-year-old professional dancer will take the season off to focus on his forthcoming role in "Singin' in the Rain" on Broadway.

"Derek will always love 'Dancing with the Stars' and the friends he's made through the show," an insider told Us Weekly magazine. "And the door isn't closed there. He'll always be a part of the family."

"Singin' in the Rain" producer Harvey Weinstein announced Hough will star Saturday.

Hough shared the news on Instagram, writing, "Proud to be a part of another adventure with The Weinstein Company. #Broadway #singingintherainmusical #classic #2017."

Word Hough won't compete follows news his sister, Julianne Hough, a former "Dancing with the Stars" professional dancer, won't return as a judge on the new season.

The 27-year-old said in February she "will miss" the show but has "a lot of exciting stuff coming."

"The pro dancers, producers and crew at DTWS will always be my family," she said in a statement. "I promise it's not the last you'll see of me in the ballroom."
