Jenna Johnson has revealed she's hoping to return to Dancing with the Stars as a professional partner.

When Dancing with the Stars returns with Season 33 on Tuesday nights at 8PM ET/PT this fall on ABC, Jenna shared how she'd "love" to be a part of the cast.

"I can't confirm anything, but with my whole heart, I would love to be back," Jenna, 30, told Us Weekly recently.

"The show has been a dream come true for myself [and] my family. It's really what I love to do."


Jenna explained how she feels alive on the dance floor and enjoys all the work that goes into each Dancing with the Stars routine.

"I thrive on performing, I thrive on teaching. Nothing fulfills me more than on Monday nights when the countdown goes, '5, 4, 3, 2, 1,' and you are live on air," Jenna gushed.

"There's nothing like that feeling. So, I would love to be back. I'm so excited that they got picked up for a 33rd season."

Jenna also teased that her husband, Val Chmerkovskiy, would like to be back in the ballroom as well.

"I would assume we would want [this season] to be a family affair, yeah," Jenna quipped, referring to how Val's sister-in-law, Peta Murgatroyd, is also a pro dancer.

Peta's husband, Maksim Chmerkovskiy, also previously served as a pro partner as well as a guest judge on Dancing with the Stars.

Jenna and Val's 16-month-old son Rome is also welcome on the set most days.

"He did come to set many times. It's so funny, I have all of these little videos of him sitting on the judges' table or there was... a lunch break on show day and no one was in the ballroom, but like the lights were flashing, lasers were going," Jenna recalled to the magazine.

"We just like put him in the center of the stage to see what he would do and he just like started dancing and was loving it. I think we have a little performer on our hands."

Jenna, however, said she'll fully back her son in whatever career he decides to pursue when he's older.

"I will support him on whatever he wants to do, but initially I was really hesitant about wanting him to dance or I guess feeling that pressure that he needed to dance and like walk in our footsteps," Jenna shared.

"We're a very dance-heavy family, but there is something to say when it's just like naturally in them and anytime there's music, he is moving and grooving, he's clapping, he's smiling. So we'll see."

Jenna said she'd like music and dance in the family to have a "natural effect" on her son.

"I don't want to force him into anything or put him into it, but if he loves it, how can I stop him?" Jenna noted.

Jenna and Val began dating in 2015 and the Ukrainian native proposed marriage in Venice, Italy, in 2018.

Val and Jenna tied the knot on April 13, 2019 in a romantic ceremony overlooking the ocean at the Terranea Resort in Rancho Palo Verdes, CA.

The couple then revealed they were expecting their first child in July 2022 after two years of struggling with infertility.

"Our biggest dream come true yet," Jenna wrote on Instagram on July 15. "Baby Chmerkovskiy coming this January [2023]! My heart has grown beyond comprehension while growing this little miracle inside of me. We can't wait to meet our precious angel."

Jenna then gave birth to Rome on January 10.

"Our world is forever changed 1.10.2023," Jenna captioned a black-and-white photo on Instagram at the time.

Prior to joining Dancing with the Stars as a Troupe member and then being promoted to a pro partner for Season 23, Jenna competed as a contestant and All-Star partner on separate seasons of So You Think You Can Dance.

Jenna won Dancing with the Stars' 26th season with Adam Rippon and placed second on the show twice before with Nev Schulman and JoJo Siwa on Seasons 29 and 30, respectively.

Jenna took a break for Season 31 to be with her child, and then she finished twelfth on Dancing with the Stars' 32nd season with model Tyson Beckford.

Last season, Val won Dancing with the Stars with actress Xochitl Gomez.

ABC has yet to announce an official premiere date for the reality dancing competition's upcoming 33rd season, and the show's cast -- its celebrities and their pro partners -- will be revealed at a later date.

Last season, Dancing with the Stars was hosted by Alfonso Ribeiro and Julianne Hough.


Derek Hough, Bruno Tonioli and Carrie Ann Inaba served as judges for Dancing with the Stars' 32nd season.

The runner-up of Dancing with the Stars' 32nd season was singer Jason Mraz, and the other finalists were The Bachelorette alum Charity Lawson, Vanderpump Rules star Ariana Madix, and actress Alyson Hannigan.
