The new season looks to have a slew of celebs joining in for the fun, with Alex Lahey, G-Flip, Luke McGregor, and Tom Ballard among the guest stars spotted in the Spicks & Specks teaser reel.
It comes after host Hills discussed a return to the series on The Green Room With Neil Griffiths, saying there was talk 'quite recently' about shooting a new 10-episode season.

"I don't think we'd ever do 40 again. I think that just would take up too much time," Hills told host Neil Griffiths.
"There was talk of doing a series of ten at some point this year, but then I had to juggle that around The Last Leg and the Paralympics. And now, the Paralympics have been cancelled as well, or postponed, so there's definitely a possibility [of more Spicks & Specks episodes].
"It also, again, comes down to whether or not you can still have people on a panel and people in the audience. If we ever go back to those days... [team captains Alan Brough and Myf Warhurst] and I all want it to happen.
"It's just a matter of logistically pulling it together. But yeah, I think there could be some more."
Spicks & Specks originally ran from 2005 to 2011 and was relaunched in 2014 with Josh Earl as host, along with Ella Hooper and Adam Richard as team captains.
