Doctor Who season 12 finally has a release date

We've known since Doctor Who last left our screens that we'd be waiting until early 2020 to see Jodie Whitaker's Thirteenth Doctor return to the TARDIS.

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. Starting with a blockbuster, action-packed two-part episode entitled Spyfall, the Thirteenth Doctor is well and truly back with a bang.

Whittaker and co-stars Tosin Cole, and Mandip Gill will take part in a Q&A following the screening, transmitted from The Paley Center for Media in NY.

The premiere date announcement was accompanied by a new trailer that shows the Doctor warning of a "big, serious crisis" - and signing off with "kisses!"

BBC America and BBC Studios will also partner with Fathom Events for a one-day event on January 5 - featuring the season premiere and the second episode - at more than 600 movie theaters in the US.
