Johnson last competed on season 20 of DWTS with Shark Tank's Robert Herjavec, whom she married in July, and told ET in August that she was done with the show.

"I love the show and I love to still be part of it, but you know, I still want to hang up my dance shoes and what a way to end," the 40-year-old Aussie said when asked about appearing on season 23. "It's like, 'Thank you, Dancing With the Stars.'"

Dancing With the Stars airs Monday at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
