    A Bachelorette, one part of Fifth Harmony and an 'American Idol' veteran all walk into a ballroom. No, this isn't the set-up of a bad joke, it's the set-up of the "Dancing With the Stars" season 28 cast.

    After taking a cycle off, ABC's reality dance competition is packed with stars of both screen, stage and politics. Announced on "Good Morning America" with longtime host Tom Bergeron, the celebrities stepping into the DWTS ballroom include Queer Eye's Karamo Brown, "All That" veteran Kel Mitchell, "The Office" star Kate Flannery, and "American Idol" runner-up Lauren Alaina. E! News previously reported The Bachelorette's Hannah Brown will be dancing as well.

    Will Hannah Brown Join DWTS Season 28?

    For the first time ever, viewers will learn the celeb and pro dancer pairs in the season premiere.

    Meet the full cast list below:
