Good news for fans who have been patiently waiting for the highly anticipated SeaChange reboot.
Channel Nine has announced when exactly the Aussie favourite will hit the small screen – and it's sooner than you may think.
The popular Aussie show starring Sigrid Thorton originally aired on the ABC from 1998 to 2000, with the reboot set to start Tuesday August 6 at 8.45pm on Channel Nine.
Titled SeaChange: Paradise Reclaimed, the revival features an all-star cast.
Sigrid will reprise her role as fan favourite Laura Gibson for the first time in two decades.
Also making the return to Pearl Bay is John Howard as Bob Jelly, who will be joined by Kerry Armstrong as his estranged wife Heather and Kevin Harrington as Kevin Findlay.
Meanwhile, the cast also includes some other well-known faces.
Brooke Satchwell will play Miranda Gibson, Laura's eldest child, Dan Wyllie will portray pub owner Ben Russo and Darren McMullen is the handsome marine biologist Findlay Knox.

The revival will pick up after the breakup of Laura's marriage. Facing divorce and unemployment, she returns to Pearl Bay after 20 years.
Sigrid previously admitted she is "absolutely thrilled " to return to her beloved role.
"Time has passed and the world has changed, so as we revisit this rich and strange place I trust we'll all delight in the chance to explore how far we've come and how far we still have to go," she said.
"I can hardly wait."
Andy Ryan, Channel Nine's co-Head of Drama, said: "Two decades after SeaChange changed the face of Australian drama, Pearl Bay is still a hotbed of romance, mateship and community spirit.
"With plenty of fresh faces the new challenges, SeaChange is perfect family entertainment."
