They’re back!

ABC announced the almost-complete line up of stars who will be returning and competing in the first-ever “Dancing With the Stars — All-Stars.”

Kirstie Alley, Pamela Anderson, Helio Castroneves, Joey Fatone, Shawn Johnson, Drew Lachey, Gilles Marini, Kelly Monaco, Apolo Ohno, Bristol Palin, Melissa Rycroft, and Emmitt Smith are 12 of the contestants.

The 13th slot will be determined by the online votes from viewers. The contenders are singer/actress Sabrina Bryan, actor Kyle Massey and stylist Carson Kressley. This is the first time in DWTS history where viewers get to choose the final contestant. The 13th star will be announced on “Good Morning America” on Aug. 27.

“We've got what we think is a great cast of popular favorites,” ABC president Paul Lee told reporters at the Television Critics Association press tour.

The show will premiere Sept. 24 on ABC.
