Second time lucky! Channel 10’s Dancing with the Stars ‘is renewed for a second season’ despite struggling in the ratings

Channel 10’s reboot of Dancing with the Stars was a live weekly extravaganza, but still failed to compete with the likes of MAFS and MKR.

And despite underperforming in the ratings, the Grant Denyer and Amanda Keller-hosted show has reportedly been renewed for a second season. 

According to TV Blackbox, Dancing with the Stars will return in 2020 with a fresh batch of celebrity contestants.

Dancing with the Stars was an impressive production for Channel 10, but failed to steal viewers away from Nine’s ratings juggernaut Married At First Sight.

It was part of a handful of new shows that failed to live up to expectations, alongside Chris & Julia Morris’ Sunday Night Takeaway and Changing Rooms.

But despite this, DWTS was praised for its glossy, professional look and attracted a plenty of social engagement – which is perhaps why Channel 10 wants to give it a second chance.

Daily Mail Australia has contacted Channel 10’s publicity department for comment. 

The last season of Dancing with the Stars averaged a 524,000 viewers during its run, despite featuring high-profile talent like Courtney Act and Samuel Johnson.
