Doctor Who returning on New Year's Day

The Doctor is back in just less than a month!

If your New Year's resolution is to watch more Doctor Who, you're in luck: Season 12 of the sci-fi series will premiere on Wednesday, Jan. 1 at 8/7c, BBC America announced Monday. Subsequent episodes will air Sundays at 8pm ET/PT beginning January 5 on BBC AMERICA. The season gets underway with two-part special, Spyfall. The BBC has also revealed that the Judoon and the Cybermen will also be threatening the Doctor once again in upcoming episodes.

America has also partnered with BBC Studios, which makes Doctor Who, and Fathom Events to simulcast the second episode of the franchise in 600 cinemas across the US on January 5. The episode will reunite Jodie Whittaker's Doctor with Ryan (Tosin Cole), Yaz (Mandip Gill), and Graham (Bradley Walsh).

"What better way to ring in a new decade than with our favorite Time Lord?" said BBC America Executive Director Courtney Thomasma in a statement. Last year, thousands of Whovians packed Madison Square Garden to celebrate Jodie Whittaker's landmark debut as the first female Doctor.

Amelia Pond (Karen Gillan) might have waited longer for her Raggedy Doctor (Matt Smith) than we've waited to find out when Jodie Whittaker's Thirteenth Doctor will return for more adventures in the TARDIS, but it certainly feels like we've been waiting years and years. "Let the New Year's countdown begin!" Season 12 features guest stars include Stephen Fry and Lenny Henry. (ER, Timeless) and Robert Glenister (Paranoid, Law and Order: UK).

Spyfall has been written by Chris Chibnall, Showrunner. The series is a BBC AMERICA co-production with BBC Studios.
