Season seven of ‘So You Think You Can Dance‘ has been a time of change – from the judges’ table looking a wee bit different to the pairings with the allstars. But, host Cat Deeley says that next season might see a return of a ‘SYTYCD’ favorite.

“I think we all miss Mary Murphy. She was definitely part of the panel and I think she will definitely come back,” said Deeley.

Yep, Deeley said definitely. “I think that’s one thing about the show,” she continued, “it really is a family and the door is always open and everybody can always come back. You know Mia [Michaels] didn’t do a season with us and then she came back. On a personal level, I miss having Mary Murphy around because she’s always so enthusiastic and so full of fun and energy and craziness. I kind of miss that, you know?”

Yes, we know and we couldn’t agree more. Fox, however, gave us a “no comment” on the subject for now.

There might be other changes to next season as well. When we caught up with executive and producer Nigel Lythgoe a few weeks ago he said they are seriously looking into why there were so many injuries this season.

“We’re going to bring somebody in to look at it and figure out what it is,” he said. “We spoke to a clinic in New York and CalTech here or something that specializes in sports medicine. They are going to come in and look at the regime and see what we’re doing. At the same time, I’m not sure that the kids are warming themselves up properly so we’re going to do a ballet bar. There is nothing better for a dancer than a ballet bar every morning.”
