We've been waiting 21 years for this career comeback!

If you're a celeb who's looking to rejuvenate your career, there's really no better option than Dancing With the Stars.

Not only has the ABC reality TV show made stars of its own in the forms of Julianne Hough, Karina Smirnoff, and Derek Hough, to name a few, but it's been pretty major in bringing stars like Joey Fatone and Alfonso Ribeiro back into the public consciousness.

Well, if there's ever been a person we hope the DWTS magic works on it's Jodie Sweetin — and she reportedly just signed on as the first contestant for the show's upcoming 22nd season!

The Fuller House star completely stole the show back when Full House was first airing in the '90s, and we're really looking forward to her lending her talents to two different series this Spring.

We've seen Stephanie Tanner shake what her daddy and uncles gave her plenty, so we have full faith that she'll be walking away with the Mirrorball Trophy this season.

Make sure to catch Jodie on Fuller House when it debuts February 26 on Netflix and Dancing With the Stars when it premieres Monday, March 21 at 8 p.m. EST on ABC!

The 37-year-old has made it to the finals four different times, winning with J.R. Martinez in Season 13, but after two poor showings where she only placed 11th back to back in 2014, Karina decided to leave the show to focus on her book, We're Just Not That Into You: Dating Disasters from the Trenches.

Well, it seems as though the jitterbug has bitten the DWTS alum, because it was announced on Tuesday that Karina would be rejoining the cast for Season 21!

So who else will she be competing against??

Karina Smirnoff's fiance calls off their engagement

Well, that was quick!

In January, Dancing With The Stars veteran Karina Smirnoff got engaged to her actor boyfriend, Jason Adelman, after they reconnected at a party last December.

But the couple's waltz ended shortly after it began. It's now being reported that Jason has called off the engagement!

Sources close with the 37-year-old actor say that the Ukranian dancer had "different family values" than he did. Also, he didn't like how Karina acted around other men!

Adelman's lack of trust could also be due to the fact that he thinks all dancers have "sexually charged lives". Maybe he didn't have enough stamina to keep up with the DWTS pro?
