Derek Hough is making major moves, but his latest announcement has fans raising questions about his future on television.

On February 17, the Dancing With the Stars judge took to Instagram to share news about his dancing career outside of TV. Uploading a promotional poster of himself, he announced that he created a new live show called All New Spectacular Symphony Of Dance, which will tour across the U.S. later this fall. What's more, Derek revealed that audiences can begin buying tickets for the immersive performance in just a few weeks' time.

"It’s been over 4 years since I’ve hit the the road," he wrote on Instagram. "So I’m ecstatic to announce a brand new live TOUR coming to your city this fall!!! Go to and sign up to stay up to date on tour dates and all other information leading up to this unforgettable live experience. Tickets on sale in April. HERE WE GO!!!"

Despite excitement over the fact that the award-winning dancer will be going coast-to-coast with his best moves, it also left folks concerned about his status as a judge on Dancing With the Stars. Though the longtime series hasn't yet announced an official premiere date for its season 32, past installments have historically debuted in late September. So, depending on when Derek kicks off his tour and how many stops he has planned, it may cut it close to the show's release.

With this in mind, fans immediately begged for answers in his Instagram comments section. "Wait no judge on DWTS?" one person inquired. "Wait how late in fall? Like after you judge DWTS right????" another implored. "Will you still be a judge on DWTS!?" a different user asked.

While Derek hasn't explicitly said anything about leaving the Disney+ series, it's highly likely he'll be back at the judges' panel. As fans know, Len Goodman recently retired from dancing competition show, so it would come as a shock if he stepped away as well.

As far as what audiences can expect from Derek's new project, he dropped more details on his official website. According to a description, it will be a reflection of the TV personality's career in ballroom dancing "with electrifying music awe inspiring dance."

He'll be joined by a cast of dancers who will "pull out all the stops in this fast paced live stage show featuring a wide array of dance styles." What's more, attendees can anticipate seeing the crew perform alongside a "live band providing the heart-pounding soundtrack, creating energy that will be undeniable."
