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.

The trailer for Doctor Who season 12 has already been released, and a number of guest stars have been confirmed, including Stephen Fry, Sir Lenny Henry, Robert Glenister and Goran Višnjić. Tickets go on sale Friday. "Casting a woman won't change it, but I'm quite nervous".

Doctor Who is executive produced by showrunner Chris Chibnall and Matt Strevens.

"Since the first Doctor regenerated back in 1966, the concept of the Doctor as a constantly evolving being has been central to the program". The series is a BBC AMERICA co-production with BBC Studios.
