The Dancing With the Stars Season 31 cast is here! Disney+ announced the cast list on Thursday, September 8, and it’s stacked with actors, reality stars, musicians, and more.

Here’s the full list of amateur dancers who will compete for the mirrorball trophy: Arnold Schwarzenegger‘s son Joseph Baena, actors Selma Blair and Wayne Brady, weather caster Sam Champion, singer/reality star Jessie James Decker, 90210 alum Trevor Donovan, CODA star Daniel Durant, Real Housewives staple Teresa Giudice, Jersey Shore‘s Vinny Guadagnino, Charlie’s Angels star Cheryl Ladd, Sex and the City alum Jason Lewis, beloved RuPaul’s Drag Race alum Shangela, singer Jordin Sparks, current Bachelorette Gabby Windey, and TikTok/The D’Amelio Show mother-daughter duo Charli D’Amelio and Heidi D’Amelio.

The D’Amelio pair were the first cast members announced. Their casting was shared on Good Morning America on September 7, and the rest of the cast was revealed the morning of September 8 on GMA. They’re the first mother-daughter duo to compete on the show, and this season will bring about other exciting firsts.

We’re Here star Shangela — the first person to walk the Oscars red carpet in drag for A Star Is Born — makes another historic drag first as the first drag queen to compete on DWTS. Blair will take on the dance competition while living with multiple sclerosis, and Durant is the third deaf contestant on the show.
