On the heels of its highest rated season to date, “Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders: Making The Team” returns to follow a group of hopefuls as they work their way through a rigorous training camp to vie for a highly-coveted spot on one of America’s most iconic teams, the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders.

The star-power remains high this season, as reality star and former Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader Melissa Rycroft Strickland returns as a guest judge and mentor for the rookie hopefuls. Also returning (virtually) are world class choreographers Charm La’Donna (Kendrick Lamar, Meghan Trainor, Brittany Spears and more), Travis Wall (“So You Think You Can Dance”) and Evan Miller (“World of Dance”), plus special appearances by sportscaster/TV personality Erin Andrews and country star Mickey Guyton.
