ABC is turning “Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars” into a real party.
The network announced Friday that a new live web series called “After Party: Dancing with the Stars” will air each week after the show during the “All-Stars” season.
The “After Party” will be hosted by Marc Istook (“After Party: The Bachelorette”) and Season 9 semi-finalist Joanna Krupa, who currently appears on “The Real Housewives of Miami.”
Season 11 runner-up Kyle Massey is also joining the party, contributing insider segments and backstage access.
Fans can check out the 20-25 minute web show on various platforms, including ABC’s website, Facebook page and YouTube channel, every Monday night immediately following the live performance episodes.
The premiere “After Party” episode will feature former “DWTS” dancer Elena Grinenko as an expert panelist and a special acoustic performance by former “DWTS” pro Lacey Schwimmer, featuring the It Boys.
“Fans can’t get enough of the ‘Dancing with the Stars’ and want to keep talking about it after the broadcast ends,” said Karin Gilford, SVP of Digital Media, ABC Television Network in a statement. “After Party keeps the conversation going at a time when people are most excited, feeding them tantalizing tidbits, insider access and, most importantly, getting their burning questions answered live by show experts.”
“Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars” premieres Monday night at 8/7c on ABC.
