Kathy Griffin has officially replaced her friend, the late Joan Rivers, on E!’s Fashion Police.

While there’s been a lot of talk about Griffin stepping in for Rivers, this is the official confirmation. Get all of the details below!

After Rivers passed away on Sept. 4, rumors began to fly about Griffin joining Fashion Police. Now, according to E!, Griffin will join Giuliana Rancic and Kelly Osbourne on the show. Plus, stylist Brad Goreski will also join the show, replacing George Kotsiopoulos.

The show won’t be on every week. It will return on Jan. 12, 2015 for a Golden Globes episode. In total, it will air 17 episodes in 2015.

Rivers’ daughter and Executive Producer of Fashion Police, Melissa Rivers, made a statement about the new additions to the show. She revealed, “Kathy just feels right, and Brad brings a fun, new voice to join Giuliana and Kelly in this ensemble. I’m excited to see where this panel takes this series my mother so adored in this next incarnation.”

Griffin also spoke about her new job, “I get it! These are some big shoes I’m going to fill. 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 yourself in, as I am taking no prisoners.  I am not holding back so DAMMIT let’s have some fun!”
