Tired of wondering what maddening new twist that Big Brother has in store for its houseguests when it returns July 7? Wait no more: CBS has announced that this season’s theme is “Double Trouble,” meaning the long-running reality show will feature (godhelpusgodhelpusgodhelpus) the return of “some of the most dynamic duos from the show’s history.”

Will and Boogie? Rachel and Brendon? Freakin’ Evel Dick and his daughter Daniele? CBS isn’t saying for now, only that “the return of these former houseguests will immediately impact the way the game will be played.” Their identities will be revealed during the premiere episode. Goody!

Oh, and we saved the best for last. Julie Chen will return as host!
