Those who have been unhappy with the brevity of Dancing with the Stars: Athletes may be more satisfied this fall, when ABC has two separate Dancing with the Stars shows on its prime-time schedule, for a total of three hours each week.

Dancing with the Stars will air Mondays at 8, as usual, and will be joined on the schedule by Dancing with the Stars: Juniors, a show that was first announced one year ago, and was planned for spring 2018.

Here’s how ABC describes the spin-off, which will also be produced by BBC Studios:

“A fresh take on an established favorite, the show will pair celebrity kids with professional junior ballroom dancers to perform choreographed routines, which will be judged by a panel that will include renowned ballroom experts.”

The junior edition will air for one hour on Sundays, followed by new episodes of Shark Tank.

Sunday nights will be entirely unscripted for ABC, starting with America’s Funniest Home Videos and ending with Alec Baldwin’s new talk show.
