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. After the screening, audiences will be treated to a LIVE Q&A with Jodie Whittaker, Tosin Cole, and Mandip Gill, transmitted from The Paley Center for Media in NY.

The rest of the series will air on Sundays, with fans promised "blockbuster action". And if the thought of waiting a full week between episodes is too much to bear, Deadline says that BBC America has partnered with BBC Studios and Fathom Events to simulcast both parts of the premiere in 600 theaters across the US on January 5, 2020. Tickets and a list of participating locations will be available beginning Friday, December 6 at the Fathom Events website. We'll bring you more on Doctor Who's new season as and when we learn it.

"Let the New Year's countdown begin!"

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. In addition, the network will also debut animated "lost episodes", titled "The Macra Terror", as a special post-holiday treat on Thursday, December 26 at 9pm ET/PT.

Spyfall has been written by Chris Chibnall, Showrunner. "The continual input of fresh ideas and new voices across the cast and the writing and production teams has been key to the longevity of the series", the BBC said.
