After more than a decade on ABCs Dancing With the Stars, Tom Bergeron was sacked in 2020.
@DancingABC will stay without me for an incredible 15 year run and the most unexpected gift of my career. I am grateful for that and for the lifelong friendships made. Now what is my fascination with all of these glitter masks? Bergeron wrote at the time.
Many DWTS fans were shocked to discover that Bergeron would not be re-arrivaled, but Erin Andrews'' co-star. The network re-enacted them both with Tyra Banks.
With the show going for the next two seasons (at least) some people are wondering if Bergeron might be brought back or if hed even consider a return. During a recent interview with Entertainment Tonight in June 2022, he was asked such questions.
Here''s all you need to know about it:
Bergeron is returning to his job, but it is most likely Wont be back on the DWTS.
After a tense hiatus from hosting gigs, Bergeron has signed a contract to participate in the first Wagmors Pet Gala.
On May 27, 2022, youre invited!!!!! To the First Annual THE PET GALA! We''re very excited to bring together our first fundraiser gala event to support Wagmor Pets. This year, we will join by @tombergeron as host, and we''ll have a great time having it.
Bergeron spoke about the event in an interview with Entertainment Tonight, which aired on June 15, 2022, and was asked if he would ever consider returning to the program, especially now that it will air on a different network.
Is there a place where we can bring you back to the show, you think? Bergeron was asked.
He looked down at the dog he was holding named Willie Nelson and seemed to clarify that he would not be back.
Willie said yes before laughing.
Bergeron admitted to having never returned to the program previously.

Despite the fact that fans would like to see Bergeron return to DWTS, he has been quite open about his decision to stay away from the show, even if there was never a chance that he would return.
Monsters and Critics published an article in April 2022 that discussed the possibility of Bergeron returning to the DWTS. Bergeron shared the article on Twitter with the caption, Recommended Reading: Selected Novels of Thomas Wolfe. Of course, Wolfe is a famous fiction writer.
Besides that, Bergeron has previously revealed that he was not too happy as the host of the program towards the end of his tenure.
The show that I left was not the show that I loved. So at the end of the season that ended to be my last season, I kind of knew. So I took everything out of my dressing room that I really wanted, he said. On the September 13, 2022 episode of the Bob Sagets Here for You podcast, he said.
He explains that the show for him now was pretty far in the rearview mirror.
