Jenna Dewan is leaving NBC’s World of Dance after two seasons, the actress announced on Monday.
The 37-year-old actress is stepping down as host of the show and made the announcement on her Instagram account. Despite her leaving as host, she will return to mentor the contestants.
“I will not be returning to the show as host for season 3,” she said. “But! I won’t be able to stay away for long, and plan to return to mentor contestants as much as possible.”
Dewan has a busy schedule outside of ‘WoD’ as she has a recurring role on Fox’s medical drama “The Resident” and will have a lead role on Netflix’s “Mixtape”.
There is no word yet on who will take over the hosting duties but some reported names include Julianne Hough and Paula Abdul.
