Surprise! Fran Drescher and the original cast of the 1990s classic The Nanny are reuniting for a special fan experience.

On Tuesday, Drescher — the beloved sitcom’s co-creator and star— announced that the original cast will be coming together via Zoom to perform a virtual table read of the pilot episode, which aired in 1993.

“NANNY FANS ALERT,” Drescher, 62, captioned a photo of the cast, including onscreen love Maxwell Sheffield (Charles Shaughnessy), reunited on Zoom. “It’s happening!!!! MONDAY 4/6 the original cast of The Nanny together AGAIN in a virtual read of the pilot episode!!! Link and time soon!”

“Laughter is the best medicine! So, in these challenging times, Petah and I thought, wouldn’t it be great if we pulled together the original cast of ‘The Nanny’ for a virtual read of the pilot?” Drescher told Variety in a statement, referring to show’s co-creator and her ex-husband, Peter Marc Jacobson. “It’s a once in a lifetime Pandemic Performance for our fans around the world who are currently stressing in isolation and could use a real upper! It sure has given each of us a lift and we hope it does for you as well.”
