It seems like Peter Capaldi is ready to take a ride on the TARDIS again, but will Jenna Coleman join him?

The Hollywood Reporter spoke with Steven Moffat on Monday about the future of the series and its two stars, and the showrunner was able to answer that question for one of his actors. Moffat confirmed that Capaldi is set to come back for another season, but Coleman has yet to agree to a new deal.

Capaldi, who just finished his first series as the Doctor, was not expected to leave, but rumors have emerged lately that Coleman, who just finished her second series, could leave following this year’s Christmas special. The actress, who joined halfway through last year’s series with Matt Smith, could be looking for a change of scenery from the BBC sci-fi program.

It seems like the change in actors playing the Doctor hasn’t deterred U.S. audiences as the same report added that it was announced that ratings for the first 10 episodes of Doctor Who season eight were up 23 percent in the U.S. The season premiere was the show’s highest-rated premiere ever on BBC America.

Moffat added that the rumors that U.K. ratings dropping was untrue and that there was no difference in the viewership of the show.

Doctor Who returns for a Christmas special on December 25 and includes guest star Nick Frost from The World’s End.
