After serving as a judge on the last three seasons of “Dancing With the Stars,” dancer-actress Julianne Hough will not be back for the new season starting March 21.

“I will miss being on the panel for Season 22, but have a lot of exciting stuff coming that I look forward to sharing,” Hough, 27, told People magazine Thursday. “The pro dancers, producers and crew at DWTS will always be my family,” ending with a suggestion she might return as a guest: “I promise it’s not the last you’ll see of me in the ballroom.”

Veteran “DWTS” judge Len Goodman is returning. “Julianne will always be a part of the “Dancing With the Stars” family and we hope to see her back in the ballroom in the future,” producer Rob Wade told People.
