The Doctor is rarely without a companion, but in the upcoming season of the long-running sci-fi series, Thirteenth Doctor Jodie Whittaker will have three new friends at her side, and a newly-released teaser introduces us to Ryan (Tosin Cole), Yasmin (Mandip Gill), and Graham (Bradley Walsh).
During yesterday’s World Cup final, the BBC shared the first footage of the new team together, as they seem to feel the affects of the new Doctor’s arrival:

This isn’t the first time the TARDIS has been so full, as showrunner Chris Chibnall pointed out in an interview with Entertainment Weekly that the original Doctor, William Hartnell, had three companions when the show first aired back in 1963.
Chibnall stated, “Doctor Who is a big, popular, inclusive show. I wanted to feel that everybody who tunes in, around the world, has a character they can relate to.”
The new season of Doctor Who premieres later this year.
