The rebooted Celebrity Apprentice with new host Arnold Schwarzenegger has officially landed a premiere date.
EW has confirmed that the NBC reality show is set to return on January 2 at 8 p.m. ET, almost two years since the last iteration of the series aired. The new season sees the show move from New York to Los Angeles.
Among the celebrities competing in various business related challenges to raise money for charities are Laila Ali, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, Boy George, and Jon Lovitz. The Terminator star will also have some big names working as advisers, including Jessica Alba and Warren Buffett.
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!”
