'DWTS' season 11 cast will be revealed on 'Bachelor Pad'

"Dancing with the Stars" will unveil its season 11 cast later this month.

ABC announced on Sunday at the Television Critics Association Summer Session in Beverly Hills, Calif., that the latest cast will be revealed on Aug. 30, during an episode of the upcoming reality series "Bachelor Pad," a "Bachelor/Bachelorette" spin-off.

The new season of "DWTS," hosted by Tom Bergeron and Brooke Burke, will premiere on Sept. 20 at 8 p.m. on ABC.

As previously reported on AccessHollywood.com, the professional dancers are still unaware if they are being called back for the show, as they find out shortly before the season begins.

Fan favorite Maksim Chmerkovskiy recently told Access he'd be thrilled to come back if they want him.

"I think it's a great show and I love being on it and if they'll have me, I'll come back," he said.

He'd also like to have a partner like the one he had for season 10.

"We always suggest (casting choices)," he said. "My suggestion would be, just give me somebody like Erin (Andrews) and I'm good."
