Leonardo DiCaprio and Jessica Biel know a good idea when they see one—it’s just a fact. So it shouldn’t come as a surprise that the actors have their eyes on a reboot of true Blair Warner brilliance.

Biel and DiCaprio are reportedly in the early stages of reviving The Facts of Life, the family-favorite ’80s sitcom about a housemother and her students at the all-girl Eastland School in New York.

The original series starred the late Charlotte Rae (Edna Garrett), Lisa Whelchel (Blair Warner), Kim Fields (Dorothy “Tootie” Ramsey), Mandy Cohn (Natalie Green) and Nancy McKeon (Jo Polniaczek), and was one of the longest-running comedies of its decade. Although the show aired on NBC for nine seasons, it’s unknown whether the reboot will return to its home network.

Biel and DiCaprio intend to produce the reboot through their respective production companies, Ocean Films and Appian Way.

Go ahead and file this under reboots we’ll actually watch.
