Netflix just added two familiar faces to The Baby-Sitters Club reboot, and we’re totally bugging.

Alicia Silverstone and Mark Feuerstein are set to star in the live-action remake of the beloved book series by Ann M. Martin, according to The Hollywood Reporter. (Silverstone is best known for playing Cher Horowitz in Clueless, while Feuerstein is widely recognized for his role as Hank Lawson in Royal Pains.)

The duo will play Elizabeth Thomas-Brewer and Watson Brewer—the mother and stepfather of Kristy Thomas (aka the founder of The Baby-Sitters Club).

The ten-episode TV show will be based on the best-selling book series. It will follow five friends—Kristy (duh), Mary Anne Spier, Claudia Kishi, Stacey McGill and Dawn Schafer—as they launch a babysitting business in their hometown of Stoneybrook, Connecticut.

Rachel Shukert (GLOW) will serve as showrunner on the reboot, while Lucia Aniello (Broad City) will direct. Aniello will also executive produce alongside Martin and Michael De Luca (The Social Network).

The first book in The Baby-Sitters Club series was originally published in 1986. It went on to become an HBO series in 1990, followed by a movie in 1995, which starred Rachael Leigh Cook (Mary Anne), Schuyler Fisk (Kristy), Bre Blair (Stacey) and Tricia Joe (Claudia).

Talk about a ’90s dream come true.
