The Dancing With the Stars season 24 cast is reportedly shaping up, with many headlining stars potentially in the mix.

ABC has not officially confirmed any celebs that are set to appear on Dancing With the Stars this spring, but the rumor mill is churning out many names who might be putting on their dancing shoes.

One big name expected to compete on season 24 of Dancing With the Stars is Olympic gymnast Simone Biles, according to a new HollywoodLife report. Other celebs expected to sign the dotted line include an actor from Pretty Little Liars and someone from either Property Brothers or Storage Wars.

As for some other major names who aren't quite set in stone yet, the publication reports current Bachelor Nick Viall, upcoming Bachelorette Rachel Lindsay, actor Scott Baio, and football stars Peyton Manning and Steve Smith Jr.

HollywoodLife also reports that former Access Hollywood host Billy Bush had been rumored to join the show but will not in fact be heading to the ballroom this spring.

The official season 24 cast announcement will take place March 1 on Good Morning America. This has become a new tradition for the show, providing a big, splashy cast announcement on ABC's morning talk show.

Little else has been revealed about season 24 of Dancing With the Stars, though producers have suggested the general theme of the cast is "heroes" and nostalgia.

"We're about half done," producer Deena Katz told Glamour at the Television Critics Association press tour in January, regarding casting. "I feel like the state of the country right now is we're really going [toward] what people love; we're going to nostalgia, we're going to Americana, we're going to heroes. We're kind of a feel-good place, when it feels like everyone's a little unsure right now. So, we're going to what we think people really enjoy."

Dancing With the Stars season 24 premieres Monday, March 20 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
