In a surprising move, Tom Bergeron, the longtime and original host of ABC’s Dancing With the Stars revealed that the competition series will be continuing without him when it returns for its 29th season. Co-host Erin Andrews, who has been with the series since 2014, is also not returning. Bergeron stated,

“Just informed @DancingABC will be continuing without me. It’s been an incredible 15 year run and the most unexpected gift of my career. I’m grateful for that and for the lifelong friendships made. That said, now what am I supposed to do with all of these glitter masks?”

In regards to the move, ABC and producers BBC Studios confirmed both Bergeron’s and Andrews’ departure with a joint statement Monday:

“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.”
