The Today Show is going overseas! Well, at least temporarily, with the Fourth Hour, aka Today with Hoda and Jenna, set to switch things up for the next pair of shows.

Hoda Kotb was absent from the First Hour of Today on Wednesday, being replaced by Craig Melvin, as her co-anchor Savannah Guthrie teased she was "on assignment" with Jenna Bush Hager.

As it turns out, the Fourth Hour co-anchors will actually be spending the remainder of their week in the lush island of Bermuda, where they will film their morning talk show.

The duo announced in late April that for two installments of their show, they will film in Bermuda as part of their "Hoda & Jenna's Trippin'" travel series, which will air live on May 9 and 10.

They will be staying and filming at The Loren at Pink Beach Hotel, and as per a press release, their "'Bermuda Bash' will explore the island's breathtaking pink sands and turquoise water and experience the local culture, style and cuisine."

It continues: "The broadcasts will feature special performances and spotlight a community hero on the island. Guests include Chef Ryan Hardy and Bermudian singer-songwriter, Mishka, known for his signature blend of soul-stirring lyrics and soothing, wind-swept vocals."

When Hoda and Jenna announced the news on their show, the latter gushed: "We have been waiting for this trip! We have been waiting and waiting, and it's finally here."

Hoda promised that they'd be living it up large on the trip, mentioning that they'd "soak in the sun, enjoy the nightlife, go shopping, eating, all the things!" They also shared that a lucky fan and guest can enter a contest to go along with them on the trip.
