The “talented dancers” from the show were quick to comment on Erin’s post.

“Love you always Erin. I don’t know who to be sarcastic with anymore though 😞,” wrote Peta Murgatroyd.

“Love you,” added Sasha Farber.

“Love you so much!!! We absolutely need that girls night,” commented Sharna Burgess, who was let go from the show in 2019.

The news of Bergeron and Andrews’ dismissal came on Tuesday, July 14, when ABC executives announced the news.

“Erin will also not be returning, and we appreciate all that she brought to the ballroom. Fans have been rooting for her since she originally competed as a contestant back in 2010, and her signature sense of humor has become a hallmark of the show.”

Erin joined the show in 2014, following in the footsteps of Tom’s previous co-hosts, Lisa Canning, Samantha Harris and  Brooke Burke.

Bergeron shared the news of his release on his own Instagram page saying, “Just informed @DancingABC will be continuing without me. It’s been an incredible 15 year run and the most unexpected gift of my career. I’m grateful for that and for the lifelong friendships made. That said, now what am I supposed to do with all of these glitter masks?”

The following day, on July 15, it was announced that former supermodel Tyra Banks will be taking over as host of the show. Her hiring marks the first time a female African American would host in a solo capacity. Tyra was also announced as Executive Producer of the show, alongside current EP, Andrew Llinares.

The new season of Dancing With The Stars  is set to air on ABC this fall.
