Netflix is continuing its tradition of resurrecting cult-comedy favorites on your streaming screen. Now joining the ranks of Wet Hot American Summer and Arrested Development is a sketch series from Mr. Show creators Bob Odenkirk and David Cross.

In addition to four half-hour episodes, Netflix will also release a one-hour “behind-the-scenes” special. All excellent news for die-hard fans of the comedy duo, many of whom have been speculating what might be in the works since Paul F. Tompkins tweeted a photo of himself with the Mr. Show team on Dec. 31.

Now that the mystery has been solved one question remains: Which friends of the show will make appearances? Past guests have included comedy favorites such as Sarah Silverman, Scott Aukerman, and Jack Black, to name a few. So Show fans, keep your fingers crossed for more good news.

Correction 2:07pm CT, April 3: An earlier version of this article included a (hilarious) misspelling of Bob Odenkirk’s name in the headline.
