After abruptly departing Channel Nine in October after being refused pay-parity with her male co-host Karl Stefanovic, Wilkinson was offered a gig on the nightly current affairs program, The Project.
Now, after a well deserved break, the popular television host is making her return to TV.
Today, the network unveiled a first-look trailer of Lisa's debut, which makes a cheeky mention of the major media circus surrounding her departure and subsequent new role.
In the short 30-second teaser, a voice-over begins: 'In 2018, guess who's coming to The Project?'
Panel member and comedian Peter Helliar then begins to list potential celebrity guests appearing on the show in the coming months - including Hugh Jackman former panelist Dave Hughes.
The camera then pans to Lisa, and Waleed Aly joyfully adds: 'Great to have you on the team, Lisa.'
