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.
