The list of new Top Gear presenters is finally complete…we think.

The BBC announced today that the show will have a total of seven presenters when it returns in May.

We learned in June that car enthusiast and radio host Chris Evans would assume the difficult task of replacing Jeremy Clarkson, who was fired nearly a year ago for allegedly attacking a staffer.

Last week, Top Gear announced former Friends star Matt LeBlanc would also join the show as a presenter.

Today, Top Gear announced the five other show presenters: Eddie Jordan, Sabine Schmitz, Chris Harris, Rory Reid, and the ever-popular Stig.

Schmitz, a German racing driver, will become the show’s first female presenter in 15 years. Jordan is a Formula 1 commentator, Harris has hosted several automotive programs on YouTube, and Reid “was recruited to Top Gear from the show’s 2015 public auditions, but previously presented for CNET’s Car Tech channel, and also had a starring role in Sky 1’s Gadget Geeks series,” according to BBC News.
