Kelly Clarkson is back! The singer will be returning to TV with the newest season of her NBC talk show, The Kelly Clarkson Show, now that the WGA strike has ended.

In a new promotional image shared on the show's Instagram page, which saw a delighted Kelly pose against a colorful backdrop, it was revealed the show will return to the air on October 16.

What's more, this is the first season of the show to film completely from its new home in New York City, as season five moves from Los Angeles to the Big Apple.

Kelly, 41, has been preparing for her move to New York ever since her Las Vegas residency, in support of her album Chemistry, came to a close last month. Her talk show has been in pre-production while a new set was being constructed at the iconic 30 Rock.

"We're back y'all! All-new episodes begin Monday Oct. 16 from our new home in NYC!" the post read, and fans were left thrilled.

One commented: "YES! I'm missing the show and the Kellyoke!" while another said: "Yayyyyyyyyyy. Fall can OFFICIALLY start now. Thank you for waiting and honoring those that work with you!!" and a third added: "Never been more excited about a talk show coming back in my life!!!! The queen is back y'all!"
