ITV announced the return date over Twitter, one week after revealing that the show's lineup of professional skaters has been overhauled.
"It's back! Dancing on Ice returns 6.15pm Sunday 6 January on ITV1," the network wrote.
Frankie Poultney, Nina Ulanova, Matt Gonzalez, Brooke Castile, Jodeyne Higgins, Sean Rice, Lukasz Rozycki and Alexandra Schauman will not be returning for the upcoming series, meaning many of the celebrity contestants will have new skating partners.
Next year's lineup is rumoured to include Pamela Anderson, Anthea Turner, Coronation Street's Samia Ghadie, former EastEnders actor Matt Lapinskas, gymnast Beth Tweddle, The Only Way is Essex star Lauren Goodger, rugby player Gareth Thomas, singer Dionne Bromfield and comic Joe Pasquale.
Five of the new professional skaters have been named as Robin Johnstone, Jenna Harrison, Andy Buchanan, Olga Sharutenko and Michael Zenezini.
Jason Gardiner will return as a judge to replace last year's panellist Louis Spence, while Phillip Schofield and Christine Bleakley will continue to host the programme throughout the next series.
