The BBC One political show airs Thursday, 17 September 2020 at 10:45pm, with a slightly larger virtual audience than in the last series.
It scrapped studio audiences post-Covid 19 social distancing advice.
‘I can’t wait to get started with Question Time,’ Fiona said.
‘We’re coming back on air at a time where our elected representatives are making crucial decisions that will affect all of us, from coronavirus to Brexit.’
‘What better time for our audience to be able to make their views heard and get their questions answered?’
The topical debate programme has been on a summer break.
Question Time will have a virtual audience of 16, up from 12 in the last series, comprising people from a different location each week and projected onto a large wall in the studio, which is just outside of London.
Fiona joined the show as a presenter in January 2019, replacing David Dimbleby.
Figures published by the BBC on Tuesday showed she is earning between £450,000 and £454,999 since landing the role last year, up by around £195,000.
