Get your popcorn ready and set your DVR: Dancing With the Stars is returning for season 24 and coming to a TV near you. The beloved ABC celebrity dance competition is set to return on March 20 and has a very interesting lineup that could make for entertaining moments.

I'm most excited to see Simone Biles, who will likely shut the DWTS stage down with her quick moves and acrobatic skills ... once she and her partner Sasha Farber decide on a group name.

"you said our team name is whaaaaaat" ? � haha we need ideas. please help !!

New mom Peta Murgatroyd is returning to the dance floor a few months after giving birth to her and costar Maksim Chmerkovskiy's son, Shai. That in itself deserves all the freaking tens in the world. (Go, Mom!) Peta will be partnered up with Bachelor star Nick Viall, which should make for an interesting time considering Nick is known to be a flirt.

(Don't forget, buddy, Maks isn't too far away.)

And if these folks don't entice you to watch, there's no way you can skip seeing Mr. T getting his foxtrot on. (Yeah, think about that visual for a second.) The former wrestler/A-Team member, who reveals he's competing in honor of Shriners Hospital and St. Jude, took to Twitter to reveal he'll shave off his iconic mohawk in honor of some amazing people.

"Now, if I just happen to win, I will cutoff my Mohawk to stand in solidarity with the children who are fighting cancer! GOD bless them!" Mr. T tweeted.

Aww.

Personally, I'm also excited to see Erika Jayne take the stage. If you don't watch The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, honey, you're truly missing out. At 45 (yes, girl!), Ms. Jayne is giving us our life with catchy dance hits, diva fans, hair flips, and "come get me" boots during her performances.

Dancing With the Stars might not be ready for what Erika is about to bring.

Who knows if this will be the best season yet or have a few unforgettable moments. It will be good to see some familiar faces (I used to love watching Nancy Kerrigan skate) and ones that continue to entertain us today.

Welp, break a leg.

... Actually, scratch that -- 'cause that could happen and would just be bad all around.
