The longtime DWTS
judge, who was not on the show this season
, appeared in a pre-recorded holiday message for the contestants and pros, which revealed that viewers are going to be seeing a lot more of him next season!
"Greetings, everyone. Len Goodman here. Now, I've been watching the show from the U.K., and I must say everyone has been doing a fantastic job," Goodman said, before addressing the DWTS pros specifically. "Listen up: Len is coming back next season, and I don't want any of your nonsense!"
Goodman decided not to serve as a judge this season due to a scheduling conflict with the British TV series, Strictly Come Dancing, where he also serves as a judge.
It's unclear if the judges' panel will undergo any additional changes in the upcoming season, or if Goodman will simply join current judges Carrie Ann Inaba, Julianne Hough and Bruno Tonioli.
Season 22 of Dancing With the Stars kicks off in March 2016.
Are you excited for Goodman's return?
