A ‘West Wing’ Reunion Is Coming & No, This Is Not a Drill

It’s been 14 years since The West Wing aired its final episode on NBC. And now, the original cast is reuniting for a brand-new—and awfully timely—special on HBO Max.

The cast and crew are teaming up for an upcoming reunion episode, titled A West Wing Special to Benefit When We All Vote, according to Variety. The streaming service hasn’t announced an official premiere date (at least not yet), though it’s expected to debut sometime this fall.

Several original cast members will reprise their roles, including Allison Janney (C.J. Cregg), Janel Moloney (Donna Moss), Dulé Hill (Charlie Young), Richard Schiff (Toby Ziegler), Bradley Whitford (Josh Lyman), Rob Lowe (Sam Seaborn) and Martin Sheen (President Josiah Bartlet).

A West Wing Special to Benefit When We All Vote will feature the stars recreating the iconic “Hartsfield’s Landing” episode from season three. The special, which will be filmed at the Orpheum Theater in Los Angeles, is designed to raise awareness about When We All Vote, a non-profit organization that’s designed to increase election participation.

Series creator Aaron Sorkin will contribute some new material and serve as an executive producer alongside Thomas Schlamme, who will direct the special.

“Tommy and I are incredibly excited to be getting The West Wing cast back together for this staged reading and to support When We All Vote in their efforts to get all of us involved in this election,” Sorkin said.

In the wise words of President Bartlet, “What’s next?”
