You don't need to abandon Dancing with the Stars forever, guys.

In a new interview with People, Julianne Hough says she will eventually return to the show that made her famous.

“I am appreciative to be taking this coming season of Dancing with the Stars off to focus on my other career paths like touring in support of my album and recording my next one. I look forward to returning to DWTS in early 2010," Hough said, clearing up an earlier statement in which she announced her leave of absence from the competition.

Boyfriend and Girlfriend

Executive producer Conrad Green said he gave Hough his blessing to “take a breather. It’s a really intensive show so we welcome our dancers the opportunity to take a break.”

Just not too long of one, please, Julianne!
