Kim Fields, The Facts of Life star, will join the cast of Dancing With The Stars next season, according to reports on Thursday.

Kim Fields Will Compete on Season 22 Of ‘Dancing With The Stars’

Fields, 46, currently appears on hit reality show The Real Housewives of Atlanta and sources confirmed this week that the actress is set to compete on the dance show when it returns for its 22nd season.

Reports of Fields’ joining DWTS comes just a few weeks after ABC announced that Julianne Hough will not be returning as a judge.

“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 told ET in a statement. “The pro dancers, producers and crew at DWTS will always be my family.”

The former judge’s brother, Derek Hough, is expected to return next season as a pro dancer, and explained that it was time for his sister to leave the show.

“I think she did three great seasons, and it’s time for her to go,” he told ET. “She’s got great things on the horizon, and she’s doing great things. Len [Goodman]’s coming back, and so, you know, I think four judges feels a little redundant anyways, so I think it’s the right thing to do.”

The full cast will be revealed during a live announcement on Good Morning America on March 8.
