They’re back! The highly anticipated new season of Love & Hip Hop: New York is set to premiere on Monday, December 16, with explosive back-to-back episodes. In the teaser clip obtained by In Touch exclusively, there’s no shortage of drama between the VH1 costars, especially with some fan-favorites making their return.

At the beginning of the sneak peek video, it shows Chrissy Lampkin arriving back in New York City with a refreshed outlook on life. She’s hoping to pursue work projects and spend more time with her longtime fiancé, Jim Jones, but she also has to make amends with her past … however that might not be so easy due to her tension with Yandy Smith-Harris.

Baby on the way! Erica Mena is also back in the Big Apple as she prepares for her upcoming nuptials with Safaree Samuels. Meanwhile, the happy couple is expecting their first child together — a precious baby girl, so there’s a lot to look forward to. Unfortunately, it won’t only be smooth sails for the pair when their previous relationships start to interfere.

Speaking of mothers, Remy Ma is celebrating becoming a first-time parent, but she’s certainly got a full plate! The rapper is trying to balance motherhood, cohosting a late-night talk show with Joe Budden, all while working on her next album. Luckily, her husband, Papoose, lends a helping hand by offering to be on full-time daddy duty.

Kimbella will also be appearing on this season and she’s definitely going through her fair share of struggles. The reality star has been trying her hardest to raise four children on her own now that her husband, Juelz Santana, began his prison sentence. Will she be able to hold down the fort while her beau is behind bars? Time will tell.

And Kimbella isn’t the only one with a hubby that’s locked up. Yandy has been staying on her grind in the business front while her husband, Mendeecees, has been in prison for the last few years. She’s looking forward to her longtime love returning home, but we’ll have to wait and see how the family dynamic changes when he’s finally a free man.

Viewers will also get an update on fan-favorites Rich Dollaz, Tahiry Jose (Joe’s ex), Olivia Longott, Somaya Reece, Juju, as well as Jonathan Fernandez, who are all set to appear this season.

We’ll also get introduced to newcomers Phresher and Jennaske.

Season 10 of Love & Hip Hop: New York premieres December 16 on VH1 at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT.
