Get ready to rumba!

Beloved pros Cheryl Burke, Karina Smirnoff, Val Chmerkovskiy, and Tony Dovolani are returning to the dance floor for the new season of ABC’s “Dancing With the Stars.”

The countdown to season 19 of the hit ABC show on Sept. 15 is officially on and as buzz builds about who could be part of the celebrity cast. The lineup of 12 professional dancers was announced today exclusively on "Good Morning America."

Fan favorites Mark Ballas and Derek Hough, the only five-time champion in the history of "DWTS," are also back for season 19. Pros Peta Murgatroyd, Emma Slater, and Witney Carson will also lace up their dancing shoes again this season.

Three newbies join the season 19 pro ranks: Artem Chigvintsev, Keoikantse “Keo” Motsepe, and Allison Holker.

Missing from this year’s pro line-up is champ Maksim Chmerkovskiy, the season 18 winner with Olympian Meryl Davis. Chmerkovskiy, 34, said last month he’d be retiring as a “DWTS” performer.

Fans will have to wait until Sept. 4 to find out who the celebrity competitors will be. The cast will be revealed live on "GMA." Until then, which celebrities do you think could be paired up with these professional dancers?

The two-hour premiere of “Dancing With the Stars” airs Monday, Sept. 15 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
