On this week's "Dancing with the Stars," the six remaining celeb couples will go three-style! It's a return to the ballroom for several ousted pro dancers and troupe members for this week's trio dance round, so that means it's time to make way for some dancin' blasts from the past (and one pro we've barely had time to miss!)

Of course, diehard "DWTS" fans want to know if Maksim Chmerkovskiy will return for the trio dances. The popular pro dancer has sat out the past seasons of the show, although he did make a cameo last season for Len Goodman's Side-by-Side challenge. (And danced with his ex, Karina Smirnoff, to boot!) Unfortunately, Maks appears to be sitting out this round, too, but check out who is returning for the Week 9 trio round:

The pictures don't lie! Leah Remini and Tony Dovolani posed for an Instagram pic with their plus-one, pro dancer Henry Byalikov, with the caption: "#TeamLeah gets a Henry! You excited for their jive? #dwts @leahremini @tonydovolani @henrybyalikov."

So is Dovolani looking to repeat history? He teamed up with Byalikov before, for a Season 15 trio dance with that season's eventual mirror ball champ, Melissa Rycroft.

Jack Osbourne and Cheryl Burke will dance a samba trio this week. The mirrorball winning pro dancer joked to On the Red Carpet that Osbourne chose pro dancer Sharna Burgess for their trio because "she is a hotter version of me." Of course, Osbourne chimed in with: "I was just glad to actually dance with a hot chick for once." Hey Jack, what about your wife?

Karina Smirnoff dished to On the Red Carpet about her threesome with Corbin Bleu and troupe member Witney Carson: "We have a very sexy, very seductive song that's got a lot of mystery to it," she said. "If there's a man who can handle two women, it's Corbin."

And talk about a spicy salsa! Last week's ousted pro Peta Murgatroyd wasn't gone for long. She tweeted, "Can't wait for trio rehearsal with @EmmaSlaterDance and @billengvall tonight! This is gonna be so quirky and fun #Salsa." She also posted a pic of the quirky threesome with the promise: "This trio is gonna blow your socks off!"

Elizabeth Berkley also took to Twitter to announce her trio with Val Chmerkovskiy and hunky troupe member Gleb Savchenko. The former "Saved By the Bell" star tweeted: "Just got home from a great rehearsal w/@iamValC and @Gleb_Savchenko. Thank u, amazing gentleman;-)#sexysalsa.

And Derek Hough is turning to his bro for this week's trip dance. On his blog for TV Guide, the four-time mirrorball champ wrote: "We have the quickstep this week and the salsa trio with Mark." (That'd be Mark Ballas, his BFF.)

Hough's celebrity partner Amber Riley dished on her Parade blog: "Our salsa is a trio dance, so we got to pick a past professional dancer or a troupe dancer to join in and we chose the ever so talented Mark Ballas! The rehearsals are fun and full of energy and creative ideas!"

"Dancing With the Stars" airs on Mondays at 8:00 p.m. on ABC.
