Oxygen has announced Dance Your Ass Off's second season will premiere Monday, June 7 at 11PM ET/PT.
Following its debut, Dance Your Ass Off will begin airing in its regular Mondays at 10PM ET/PT timeslot beginning June 14.
A cross between Dancing with the Stars and The Biggest Loser,Dance Your Ass Off follows overweight contestants as they're paired with professional dancers who train them for weekly routines that they then perform in front of a live studio audience and judging panel.
The judges score the dance routines before the contestants weigh-in to reveal their weekly weight loss total -- with both being combined for an overall score that determines who is eliminated at the end of each episode.
Former Spice Girl and Dancing with the Stars celebrity participant Melanie Brown will serve as Dance Your Ass Off'ssecond season host -- replacing Marissa Jaret Winokur, another Dancing with the Stars alum who served as the reality series' first season host last summer.
Oxygen renewedDance Your Ass Off for a second season in November after its first season averaged more than one million total viewers -- making it the most-watched freshman series in the network's history.
Dance Your Ass Off is produced by Magical Elves, with co-founders Cutforth and Jane Lipsitz serving as the show's executive producers.
