Following the success of reboots and revivals like Will & Grace, Fuller House and Roseanne, there might be a new iteration of The Baby-Sitters Club heading our way.

The popular book series about a group of young girls who run a babysitting service has already been adapted into an HBO children’s series that ran for one season in 1990 and a 1995 movie. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the new B.S.C. project in development will feature all of the beloved original characters from the books — Kristy, Mary Anne, Claudia and Stacey — in a new series of half-hour episodes. The project also aims to modernize the stories by exploring topics that include racism and divorce.

As of now, there is no network attached to the new Baby-Sitters Club adaptation. However, Broad City’s Lucia Aniello and GLOW‘s Rachel Shukert are in talks to direct and showrun, respectively.

If B.S.C. hits the small screen again, it will be one of many familiar stories on the air. The CW has new versions of Charmed and Roswell on their upcoming slate, Hulu is reviving Animaniacs, Freeform is developing a Party of Five reboot and CBS is already reviving Murphy Brown and they may bring back Mad About You, too. And that’s only scratching the surface of all the reboots and revivals in the works right now, so what’s one more?
