Is This Fan-Favorite Dancer Really Quitting DWTS?

Val Chmerkovskiy is one of the most popular professional dancers on "Dancing With The Stars." The seasoned vet not only brings the heat to the ballroom each week, but he's also a former champion after winning the show back in 2015 with his partner Rumer Willis, and then again one year later in 2016 with his partner Laurie Hernandez, per Page Six. During his most recent stint on the show in Season 30, Chermkovskiy was paired with social media influencer and Lori Loughlin's daughter, Olivia Jade Giannulli. The pair was eliminated one week before the semifinals, but the dancer says he's happy with what he and Giannulli accomplished during their time together.

"I'm very proud of her. I'm proud of us. I'm proud of this season," Chmerkovskiy said to Us Weekly. "It meant a lot to me to be in a position to help somebody, period. But also somebody that could have used it. I'm grateful for that opportunity. I'm grateful that it worked too. We did win some folks over. We did get a chance to shed a different light on her and show her in a different spotlight. And then also show that she earned it, that she wasn't just given it."

Now, fans are worried that Season 30 may have been the last time they'll see Chmerkovskiy on the show after he revealed he may not return in the future.

Val says Season 30 is probably his last on DWTS

Us Weekly reports that Val Chmerkovskiy may have danced his last dance on the "Dancing With The Stars" ballroom floor. The professional dancer made a shocking confession this week after he and his partner, Olivia Jade Giannulli, were eliminated from the competition in Season 30. "I've always been very clear about coming back on the show. I love the show. I love being on it. I am so grateful for the opportunity. Is this my last season? Probably," Chmerkovskiy confessed to Entertainment Tonight. "I have no regrets about my tenure on the show. I have no regrets about the season. I couldn't have asked for a better partner to end it with."

Chmerkovskiy first appeared on "DWTS" back in Season 2. However, he wasn't given a partner as a featured dancer until Season 13. He has since competed in 17 seasons of the reality dance competition. "There's no burned bridges, there's nothing but gratitude, again, with the production, with the show," the dancer said to ET. "I hope I've served the show and this show has definitely changed my life, so it's mutually love and we'll see what happens in the future."

Chmerkovskiy will continue to dance with his brother Maks, who also competed on 17 seasons of "DWTS" before leaving the show after Season 25. Meanwhile, Chmerkovskiy's wife, Jenna Johnson, is also a pro dancer for the show. If Chmerkovskiy chooses to quit "DWTS" officially, his presence will be missed.
