Mischa Barton and Ginger Zee Join ‘Dancing With the Stars 22’
The cast for Dancing With the Stars 22 has two new recruits, as meteorologist Ginger Zee and actress Mischa Barton join the cast!
Mischa Barton is perhaps best known from her role as Marissa Cooper on the FOX series The OC, while Zee can be seen every morning on ABC as part of the Good Morning America team.
Zee, who had her first child in December 2015, will be paired with Val Chmerkovskiy, while Barton will be paired with Artem Chigvintsev. Those hoping for one of the new stars to be paired with last season’s champ, Derek Hough, will likely be disappointed to learn that Hough will be taking a season off. This comes hot on the heels of news that his sister, former DWTS pro Julianne Hough, would be leaving the judging panel for the foreseeable future. However, Len Goodman will be re-joining the judging panel.
Together, Zee and Barton join a cast that includes Fuller House star Jodie Sweetin and The Facts of Life actress Kim Fields. As of yet, no male stars have been announced for the cast, but expect that to change when the full cast is revealed on Good Morning America on Tuesday, March 8!
Dancing With the Stars 22 premieres Monday, March 21 on ABC.
