The New Celebrity Apprentice with Arnold Schwarzenegger has officially landed a premiere date. Entertainment Weekly reports (via our good friends at TV Deets) that the NBC competitive reality series is set to return on Monday, January 2, 2017 at 8pm7c, almost two years since the last iteration of the series aired.

The new season sees the show move from New York City to Los Angeles.

Among the celebrities competing in various challenges to raise money for charities are Laila Ali, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, Boy George, Jon Lovitz and Real Housewives stars Kyle Richards from The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and Porsha Williams from The Real Housewives of Atlanta. View the complete lineup below!

  • Eric Dickerson, pro football hall of fame running back
  • Boy George, Grammy-winning singer
  • Matt Iseman, America Ninja Warrior host

Schwarzenegger is taking over hosting duties from Donald Trump, who was the face of the show for the first 14 seasons. Last year, NBC severed ties with the businessman and presidential candidate after his controversial comments regarding immigrants from Mexico.

“I have always been a huge fan of The Celebrity Apprentice and the way it showcases the challenges and triumphs of business and teamwork,” Schwarzenegger previously said in a statement. “I am thrilled to bring my experience to the boardroom and to continue to raise millions for charity. Let’s get started!”
