After a lot of speculation, E! has made Kathy Griffin the official replacement for Joan Rivers on Fashion Police.

In an announcement today, E! says the show will return for 17 episodes starting with Golden Globes coverage and will feature Griffin as the new host along with panelists Giuliana Rancic, Kelly Osbourne and another newbie, Brad Goreski from It's A Brad, Brad World.

Joan Rivers daughter Melissa will not be featured on the show, but will continue to executive produce and says,

"Kathy just feels right, and Brad brings a fun, new voice to join Giuliana and Kelly in this ensemble. I'm excited to see where this panel takes this series my mother so adored in this next incarnation."

You can see the new incarnation starting Monday January 12, 2015.
