Anna Demidova won the Pro-Dancer Competition in Season 8, and is guaranted as a professional in Season 9. Tom Bergeron also stated that "...we will be seeing you also next season." to both Kym Johnson and Maksim Chmerkovskiy.

Julianne Hough also announced that she would not take part in Season 9, for she is concentrating on her music career.
