Beginning on 22nd November this year, the season opener will once again kick off in Ad Diriyah, with a double-header weekend, concluding in London in July 2020 with another double-header at the ExCeL centre.
New additions include a race in the South Korean capital of Seoul, as well as two race locations still be to confirmed.
At the moment the March 21st slot is still expected to be Sanya, but Formula E is exploring other options in China.
In total, the calendar sees the teams and drivers tackle 14 races in 12 cities, covering four continents.
Pre-season testing is yet to be confirmed but is expected to be held around mid-October. There are likely to be a number of in-season tests, as well as a young driver test, but details have also yet to be released.
