Doctor Who will be streaming exclusively on HBO Max next year, CNET sister site TV Guide reported Thursday. All 11 seasons will be coming to the platform in spring 2020, when WarnerMedia's new streaming service launches.

Doctor Who , now starring its first female doctor, Jodie Whittaker, completed its 11th series at the end of last year with the highest ratings in a decade for the show. Series 12 could hit in 2020.

Once new seasons have been aired on BBC America, HBO Max said Thursday it will be the exclusive streaming home for Doctor Who.
