The 12th season of the hit series Doctor Who is on the way and BBC America just revealed the premiere date!
The beloved sci-fi series will return on Wednesday, January 1 at 8/7c with a two-part episode. The series then moves to its regular time slot on Sunday, January 5 at 8/7c.
Fathom Events will be hosting screenings of the season premiere and the second episode in movie theaters nationwide on January 5.
“What better way to ring in a new decade than with our favorite Time Lord?” said Courtney Thomasma, BBC America’s executive director. “BBC America is excited to kick off the new year with new Who, including a thrilling New Year’s Day premiere followed by new episodes every Sunday this winter. Last year, thousands of Whovians packed Madison Square Garden to celebrate Jodie Whittaker’s landmark debut as the first female Doctor. This year, we’re thrilled to partner with Fathom Events to bring that unique experience to fans all across the country, as Doctor Who embodies the idea of space for all. Let the New Year’s countdown begin!”
