DOCTOR Who's 12th series is confirmed to return on New Year's Day, with the terrifying Cybermen set to make a comeback.
Jodie Whittaker, 37, will reprise her role as the Doctor for an exciting new 10-part series in 2020.
After the season premiere on Wednesday 1st January on BBC One, episodes will air on Sunday evenings.
New Year's Day's exciting two-part episode, Spyfall, will no doubt whet fans' episodes for the thrilling saga ahead, with Jodie's Doctor taking charge of the TARDIS once again.
She will be joined by her usual companions Ryan [Tosin Cole], Yaz [Mandip Gill], and Graham [Bradley Walsh] – with a host of famous faces also set to make cameo appearances throughout the twelfth series.
Stephen Fry, Sir Lenny Henry, Robert Glenister, and Goran Višnjić are just some of the big names confirmed to guest-star in the coming episodes.
And they're not the only familiar faces set to grace the small screen, with it also being announced that the Doctor's persistent enemies, the Cybermen, and the Judoon will be making highly-anticipated comebacks.
Last week, a trailer for the upcoming series was released – teasing a dastardly World War II plot.
Season 12 marks Jodie's second outing as the Time Lord, with show runner Chris Chibnall previously letting slip that the new monsters are "absolutely terrifying".
He said: "I think we've got some amazing monsters. It's probably a bit scarier."
"The thing is with Doctor Who, you've got to hit all of the notes… We've definitely got some bigger action set pieces. We've got some old monsters coming back.
"We've got some really brilliant new monsters. And there's a little thread trickling through.
"It's not the same. We're developing the story for the Thirteenth Doctor and this gang."
Doctor Who returns on 1st January 2020 on BBC One.
