Kym Johnson will not be coming back to "Dancing with the Stars" for Season 17, Us Weekly reports.

"I will be taking the next season off from 'DWTS' USA, so that I may accept an amazing work opportunity back home in Australia," Johnson told the magazine. "I am excited, nervous and humbled by this chance and look forward to sharing more about it with you soon."
