NBC Entertainment announced Monday that, with or without New York billionaire businessman Donald Trump, the show must go on.

The pick? Former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger.

“We are thrilled to be opening a powerful new chapter in the story of the ‘Apprentice’ franchise,” said Paul Telegdy, NBC Entertainment’s president of alternative and late night programming, according to Entertainment Tonight.

“Arnold Schwarzenegger is the epitome of a global brand in entertainment and business, and his accomplishments in the political arena speak for themselves. It was Arnold’s personal passion for the format that Mark Burnett and Donald Trump built over the last decade, as well as his fresh take on how to take it to new heights for today’s audiences, that made him the man to hire. The Celebrity Apprentice … will be back!”

And he’ll be saying, “You’re fired!” with an Austrian accent.
