MTV stands for Music Television. It’s easy to forget that today, when music has been almost completely divorced from the channel. Now, though, it looks like music is making a return. MTV announced today that its first weekly music series in almost 20 years is set to debut in just one week.

The show, titled Wonderland, will be hosted by hip-hop and pop artist Lizzo, “culture vulture” Steak and stand-up comedian Myke Wright. The show will air performances from a wide variety of musicians, and will put the focus on new music. The series premiere will feature performances from Tinashe, Ty Dolla $ign and Broods.

All episodes of Wonderland can be watched live on and Facebook Live, free of charge. The show will premiere next Thursday, Sept. 15 at 11 p.m. EST, and air for ten weeks. For those of you nostalgic about the musical roots of MTV, Wonderland is for you. For those of you who like what MTV has evolved into, you have the rest of the channel. While you count down the seven days until the premiere, check out the first promo for Wonderland below.
