MADtv may be getting a cast makeover for its CW reboot, but it’s not going to forget its roots. Original MADtv cast members Nicole Sullivan, Will Sasso, and Bobby Lee will all make appearances in the revival series, EW has confirmed.

Since their respective tenures on MADtv during the ’90s and early ’00s, Sullivan, Sasso, and Lee have all moved on in sitcom and film roles. Sullivan (’95—’01) helmed her own sitcom Rita Rocks, recurred on The King of Queens and Scrubs, and currently appears on Black-ish. Sasso (’97—’02) was a main character on the ABC sitcom Less Than Perfect, appeared on Shameless and Another Period, and is set to reprise the role of Curly in a The Three Stooges sequel. Lee had the longest MADtv run of the three returnees, as a regular cast member from 2001 until the show’s ending in 2009. He’s since appeared in Pineapple Express, starred in The Awesomes, and most recently recurred in Netflix’s Love.

The reboot will premiere on July 26 at 9 p.m. ET on The CW, featuring both Sullivan and Sasso.
