“Doctor Who” loves a long hiatus. BBC America will air the Season 11 finale Sunday night, but don’t expect the sci-fi TV show to return in 2019. The veteran hit is taking another year off.

The BBC officially announced that “Doctor Who” Season 12 has been ordered, and it will be back in 2020. “We’re delighted that the Doctor and her friends will be returning to thrill audiences in 2020,” Charlotte Moore, BBC One’s Director of Content, said in a press release.

The good news is that Whovians will get one more adventure with Jodie Whittaker’s Doctor before the TARDIS disappears. There will be a New Year’s Day special. As previously reported, it will replace the Christmas special.

The holiday episode will be titled “Resolution.” In the special, “a terrifying evil is stirring from across the centuries of Earth’s history.” That’s not much to go on, but the Mirror reports that the show will finally return to classic aliens in this episode. The Daleks are rumored to appear, but take that with a grain of salt. When showrunner Chris Chibnall spoke to International Business Times earlier this year, he seemed pretty set on using only new creatures.

He explained that introducing new aliens is helping in “showcasing what ‘Doctor Who’ can do and feeling that for the generation of viewers who are hopefully going to come on now, it feels like their monsters, ones they can own. You know the thing of, again, a kid of 8 or a first-time viewer of 28 or 98 that you go, ‘Oh OK, that was my monster.’”

The Jan. 1 episode was filmed earlier this year, but Whittaker is already anxious to play the Doctor again. “I really can’t wait to step back in and get to work again,” the actress told The Hollywood Reporter. “It’s such an incredible role. It’s been an extraordinary journey so far and I’m not quite ready to hand it over yet.”

The British cult hit is expected to start filming in early 2019.
