The former Dancing With the Stars host previously teased his return to hosting, but he won't be going back to any of the shows he used to work on, despite any rumors saying otherwise. "I thought I would let you go into the weekend with some more information, some of which may disappoint some of you. I am returning to hosting — that is the part I hope doesn't disappoint some of you," Bergeron shared in another video. "It's not going to be a show that I previously hosted, however, it's very reminiscent of a show I previously hosted."


Rumors that Bergeron would be coming back to Dancing With the Stars were first sparked after he shared another vague message on Twitter. He posted a quote from The Godfather Part III saying, "Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in." The vague Twitter post earned an uproarious response from fans who were hoping he would be returning. He followed up the tweet with a video post, thanking his fans and promising there was more in store. "I have to say, your response to my admittedly cryptic [post] has been very flattering, very heartwarming. I promise I will let you know what I'm really talking about by next week at the latest."
