"Weir has a wonderful story that audiences love and I'm excited to be collaborating with such a fantastic team on this project," said Corwin.

"We are excited to be working with Charlie Corwin, Jay Peterson and the Original Media team again and can't wait to bring fans another amazing season of this awesome show featuring everyone's favorite figure skater, Johnny Weir," said Ripa and Consuelos.
