Dancing With the Stars is grooving back into our TVs tonight (Sept. 14), with an all-new cast of celebrities paired with some of our favorite dancers.

This season’s cast includes famous names — including Carole Baskin of Tiger King — paired up with their own professional dancers, vying for the top spot.

Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy! return tonight after a long hiatus, too.

On the new season of Wheel of Fortune, this time around, each contestant is given their own spinning cap, which longtime host Pat Sajak calls, “The White Thing.” This way, contestants can spin without touching the Wheel.

Jeopardy! will return with the beloved Alex Trebek once again running the game.

Here are the 15 celebrities:

Monica Aldama – Cheerleading coach from Netflix’s Cheer
Carole Baskin – Big cat rights activist from Netflix’s Tiger King
Kaitlyn Bristowe – The Bachelorette season 11 lead
Vernon Davis – Former NFL tight end
Anne Heche – Actress (Psycho, The Brave)
Skai Jackson – Disney Channel actress (Jessie, Bunk’d)
Justina Machado – Actress (One Day at a Time)
Jeannie Mai – TV host and stylist (The Real, Holey Moley)
AJ McLean – Backstreet Boys singer
Jesse Metcalfe – Actor (Desperate Housewives, Dallas)
Nelly – Rapper & singer
Charles Oakley – Former NBA power forward
Nev Schulman – Host and producer of MTV’s Catfish
