Real Housewives of Atlanta star NeNe Leakes and acting legend Billy Dee Williams are set to put on their dancing shoes for season 18 of Dancing With the Stars

According to New York Daily News, host Tom Bergeron and brand new co-host Erin Andrews announced Tuesday that Leakes and Williams were among a lineup that boasts some of the 90's, 80's and even the 70's favorite stars. 

Williams, 76, is the oldest contestant on the show and will be paired with professional dancer Emma Slater, while Leakes will partner with Tony Dovolani.

The cast also includes The Wonder Years' Danica "Winnie" McKellar, comedian Drew Carey, Candace Cameron Bure who played D.J. Tanner on 90's sitcom Full House, and Amy Purdy, 34-year-old Paralympic snowboarder.

This season, viewers will have the chance to vote on revamped pairings before the stars get too comfortable with their professional coaches. 

Dancing With the Stars premieres March 17 at 8 p.m. on ABC.
