Some “Dancing With the Stars” fans are expressing dissatisfaction with a dancer who says they may return for the show’s upcoming season.

He also spoke about the possibility of retiring on the Olivia Jade podcast, “Conversations with Olivia Jade.”
When it came to why he wanted to retire, he said there were several reasons.
“Babies too, but for me personally I just want to keep growing creatively, I want to produce shows, I want to act on Broadway, I want to act in films, I want to move on [the show]’ he told Olivia Jade at the time. “We could certainly work together in the future. It doesn’t just have to be with this project, we could also support our own project.”
Now it looks like he might be back for the next season of the show.
Chmerkovskiy’s wife hinted that he would return
in a (n Interviewed by Us WeeklyJenna Johnson seemed to hint that her husband would return to “Dancing With the Stars” if asked back.
“He’s being kidnapped,” she told the outlet. “He’s chiseled and really inspired right now. So I’m kind of like, ‘Okay. Danger.’ I think he’s really looking forward to next season.”
Chmerkovskiy also told Extra that he may return for the upcoming season.
“We don’t know the details [the show] yet,” he said. “I don’t know if I’ll be back or not, but I’m looking forward to the show.”
Some fans weren’t thrilled with Chmerkovskiy’s potential return
Following Johnson’s commentssome fans took to Reddit to talk about how it sounds like Chmerkovskiy is returning to the show.
“I can’t believe Val is planning to come back. Wow, is he so excited all of a sudden?” one person wrote. “These miserable and burned-out pros just don’t want to give it up I see… I feel like I have to skip Val parts just like people skip Tyra’s.”
The comment also states that Chmerkovskiy called his colleagues “spineless b****es”. during the off-season.
“I think Val is already forgotten and burned out.” a comment reads. “I think he’s the oldest pro next to Cheryl? They have to go… they can pair Val with Beyonce and I still wouldn’t vote for that man. I loved Val too until I read all the horrible things he did here.”
Another person thinks that Chmerkovskiy has to return to the show because he has no other work in dance.
“I just think he couldn’t find anything else, he was just doing conventions, which everyone is doing since the end of the DWTS season and some work that he’s already done with his studios.” the comment reads.
Another person pointed this out“I belong to a DWTS group on Facebook and there are a lot of older women who love Val and Gleb and here people seem to be all over them…lol.”
