Whovians, rejoice! Soon enough, there will be even more Doctor Who-related content flying to your TV.

British network BBC Three announced a new Doctor Who spinoff Thursday called Class, which comes from American-born, now U.K.-based YA author Patrick Ness. Accordingly, Class will be targeted toward the YA set and take place in contemporary London. A press release announcing Class describes the new series like so:

"Incredible dangers are breaking through the walls of time and space, and with darkness coming, London is unprotected. With all the action, heart and adrenalin of the best YA fiction (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, The Hunger Games), this is Coal Hill School and Doctor Who like you've never seen them before."

Steven Moffatt, who will serve as executive producer of Class, also added, "This is growing up in modern Britain — but with monsters!"

Class will begin filming in and around Wales in Spring 2016 and premiere sometime next year.

This won't be the first time Doctor Who got a spinoff. The time-traveling sci-fi series previously inspired the spinoffs Torchwood and The Sarah Jane Adventures. Both were successful, but they didn't have quite the staying power of Doctor Who, which just began the ninth season of the revived series last month.
