America's Funniest Home Videos alum Tom Bergeron is exiting as host of Dancing with the Stars after 15 years.


Both Bergeron and co-host Erin Andrews will not return to the stage for Dancing with the Stars' 29th season, ABC confirmed. Bergeron had been with the show since its conception in 2005 and has won an Emmy for his time as host. Andrews joined as co-host in 2014.

Bergeron took to Twitter to share the news with his fans, showing gratitude for his time on the show.

ABC shared a statement about Bergeron's time with the show and how they plan to proceed:

"Tom Bergeron will forever be part of the Dancing With the Stars family. As we embark on a new creative direction, he departs the show with our sincerest thanks and gratitude for his trademark wit and charm that helped make this show a success. Erin will also not be returning, and we appreciate all that she brought to the ballroom. Fans have been rooting for her since she originally competed as a contestant back in 2010, and her signature sense of humor has become a hallmark of the show."

Queer Eye host and former DWTS contestant, Karamo Brown, shared his thoughts about the iconic host's departure.

Season 29 will look very different with a new host or two and possibly a social distanced or virtual dancing element. Fans agree the show will not be the same without Bergeron, but look forward to the future of Dancing with the Stars post-pandemic.
