The long-running, time-defying, science-fiction show will premiere Jodie Whittaker's second season as the 13th Doctor on New Year's Day at 8 PM with the two-part episode "Spyfall". After the premiere, new episodes will air Sundays at 8/7c.

The January 1, 2020, premiere date was announced as a new trailer was dropped for the sci-fi drama, which sees Jodie Whittaker reprise her role as the Time Lord. This one-day-only special event, featuring the premiere episode and an exclusive early unveiling of the second episode of the new season, will be simulcast to over 600 cinema screens nationwide.

She will be reunited with co-stars Tosin Cole (Ryan), Mandip Gill (Yaz) and Bradley Walsh (Graham). Tickets and a list of participating locations can be found here beginning Friday, Dec. 6.

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