Nickelodeon recently announced the premiere of Ryan’s Mystery Playdate’s fourth season—and like just about everything else, it’s going virtual!

Instead of in-person playdates, Ryan and his parents will host their guests remotely in the same way you’ve worked and met up with friends over the past year—using teleconferencing tech. This season’s guest lineup includes WWE Superstars Ember Moon and Kurt Angle, rock band OK Go, professional soccer player Christie Pearce Rampone, PGA golfer Harold Varner III and other notable celebs.

Like past seasons, Command Center includes plenty of mystery box puzzles, games, activities and imaginative challenges. The premiere episode of the season, Ryan’s Wild Safari Playdate/Ryan’s Goal Scoring Playdate will include animal adventures, a wildlife guide and a soccer-packed playdate with Christie Pearce Rampone.

Watch new episodes Monday through Thursday at 10:00 a.m. ET/PT on Nickelodeon. Your kiddo can also catch Ryan’s Mystery Playdate on Nick Jr., Tues. through Fri. at 3:30 p.m. ET/PT.
