"The best is yet to come," she teases on social media.

Abby Lee Miller just announced her "official" return to "Dance Moms."

The reality star revealed the news on Friday, posting on Instagram saying she'll be back on the Lifetime dance show for Season 8, despite her ongoing battle with cancer. Miller was diagnosed with Burkitt lymphoma, a rare form of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, in April of this year.

"OMG! Can you believe I'm going to film Season 8 of Dance Moms!" Miller captioned a selfie. "Yes, it's official! We begin the end of Jan! #dancemoms #aldcalways #abbyleemiller #season8 #ALDC #thebestisyettocome #aldcla"

TooFab has reached out to Lifetime to comment, but have yet to hear back.

Miller, 52, has been teasing her return to "Dance Moms" for a while. Back in November, the television personality shared a photo of her smiling in front of the cameras as she sat in a wheelchair, a sign for the Abby Lee Dance Company featured prominently behind her.

"Grrrrrrrr!!!! Back to the daily grind," she wrote at the time. "Comment if you can guess what we're shooting today ?#abby #abbyleemiller #abbylee #dance #tvshow #dancemoms"

Reps confirmed to People over the summer that Season 8 was casting and Miller would be involved in some capacity.

The professional choreographer left the series back in March 2017, quitting in an angry Instagram post. "I JUST HAVE A PROBLEM WITH BEING MANIPULATED, DISRESPECTED, AND USED - DAY IN AND DAY OUT BY MEN WHO NEVER TOOK A DANCE LESSON IN THEIR LIVES AND TREAT WOMEN LIKE DIRT," she posted at the time.

In May 2017, Miller was sentenced to one year and one day in federal prison for bankruptcy fraud. She began her sentence in July and was released in March 2018, before completing the remainder of her sentence in a halfway house.
