Doctor Who is headed back to Amazon, with the e-commerce giant announcing a multiyear pact with BBC Worldwide North America that makes Amazon Prime Video the exclusive U.S. subscription streaming home for the modern version of the sci-fi series.

The first eight seasons of Doctor Who, along with all holiday special episodes, will be available starting March 27 to Amazon Prime customers at no additional charge.

Both Netflix (NFLX) and Hulu Plus had previously offered “Doctor Who” classic and current full seasons, before their rights to the series expired Feb. 1.

The current iteration of Doctor Who began broadcasting on BBC America in 2005.
