A brand new season of Lego Masters, the perfect feel-good, family-friendly reality series, has arrived just in time to distract us from everything that's going on in the world right now.
Thankfully, all the episodes of Channel Nine's new wholesome show were already filmed before our strict new social distancing rules were implemented, so the entire show is in the can and ready to be beamed into our living rooms.
This season, eight couples will battle it out each week in an attempt to impress the show's host, funnyman Hamish Blake and judge Ryan "The Brickman" McNaught, who is the only person in the southern hemisphere to be credited as a certified Lego professional.
That means he's got the big tick from Lego HQ and is legally allowed to represent the brand.
Each week, the teams will complete a series of dazzling and unique challenges in the quest to be crowned the Lego Master, as well as take home a whopping $100,000.
Channel Nine has promised this season will be bigger and better than ever, with 1.3 million more Lego "bricks" added to The Brick Pit, the room full of Lego where the contestants pick out the bricks they require.
Plus, there will be exciting themed challenges, including an "underwater theme, a Star Wars challenge, magical fairy tale builds, incredible hanging 3D art and a race against the clock to build the tallest tower possible".

And if you're wondering exactly where these fabulous Lego creations are constructed, and where the famous Brick Pit is housed, we've got the answer for you.
"Lego Masters was filmed at the Melbourne Showgrounds in Ascot Vale," a Channel Nine spokesman told TV WEEK.
It's the same studio used to film Australian Ninja Warrior, MasterChef and even Family Food Fight.
