"The Celebrity Apprentice" fans can breathe a sigh of relief, because the Donald Trump reality series will be making its return to NBC.

During the network's TCA winter press tour on Sunday (Jan. 19), NBC head of alternative programming, Paul Telegdy, confirms that the series is no longer on hold. He tells reporters that Season 7 of "The Celebrity Apprentice" is casting now, and will shoot in the spring for its next season.

At the beginning of January, a alleged cast lineup claimed Gordon Ramsay, Criss Angel, Scott Disick, Kenya Moore, Lindsay Lohan, Lea Michele, K. Michelle, Snooki and Ludacris. While that lineup seems ludicrous (pun intended), maybe one or more of those celebrities will actually end up being the new "Apprentice."

With fliming set for spring, Telegdy says the show will be available for the 2014-15 season.
