The Doctor is returning.
The BBC announced Saturday on its official blog that Doctor Who will return for an eighth season just as the current run of episodes wrapped up ahead of the 50th anniversary special airing Nov. 23.
The announcement also revealed that Doctor Who executive producer Steven Moffat is “already plotting a brand new run of adventures for the Doctor.” Brian Minchin will join Moffat as executive producer.
Matt Smith, who has played the Doctor since 2010, said in a recent interview that he will return for season eight.
The 50th anniversary special will feature Smith, Jenna-Louise Coleman, David Tennant, Billie Piper and John Hurt, who was seen in the season seven finale.
