Fashion Police will have a new host when it returns in 2015. Following Joan Rivers’ death earlier this year, the E! show took a brief hiatus, but will return in January with, as rumored, Kathy Griffin at the helm.

“I get it! These are some big shoes to fill,” the comedienne said in a statement. “Joan was truly one of a kind. Now I hope you will accept me for me. I’m just Kathy. Did I say I’m just Kathy? I meant I’m Kathy F—ing Griffin and you celebrities better strap yourselves in, as I’m taking no prisoners. I am not holding back so DAMMIT let’s have some fun!”

Former co-hosts Giuliana Rancic and Kelly Osbourne will return, but with George Kotsiopoulos leaving, Brad Gorecki will add another new face to the cast.

“Kathy just feels right and Brad brings a fun, new voice to join Giuliana and Kelly in this ensemble,” Melissa Rivers, Joan’s daughter and Fashion Police EP, added. “I’m excited to see where this panel takes this series my mother so adored in this next incarnation.”

Additionally, when Fashion Police returns, it will no longer be a weekly show. Instead, the series will only air 17 episodes throughout 2015, mostly focusing on major awards shows.
