After the death of Joan Rivers, losing two co-hosts and a whole lot of drama, "Fashion Police" will return this August with Melissa Rivers, reports Variety.

E! announced that veteran co-hosts Giuliana Rancic and Brad Goreski will also return to the show, kicking off the first episode with coverage of the MTV Video Music Awards on Aug. 31. The new season will feature the trio of co-hosts, as well as two other rotating celebrity guests in each episode.

Back in March, E! announced the show was going on hiatus after co-hosts Kelly Osbourne and Kathy Griffin left the series. The former co-hosts exited amid drama surrounding Rancic's offensive remarks about actress Zendaya's dreadlocks during a post-Oscars episode of "Fashion Police."

On the show, Rancic said Zendaya's dreadlocks made her look as if she smelled "like patchouli oil" or "weed," though it was later confirmed that the co-host's remarks were edited, and that she was making a reference to "hippie culture."
