Steven Universe fans are used to waiting a while for new episodes — the animated series isn’t exactly known for its punctual release dates — but in just a few weeks they’ll be getting a new episode every day for five days straight.

Cartoon Network announced Friday that the beloved series about a group of superhero gem-women and their hybrid helper Steven will return from its nearly 3-month hiatus at the beginning of 2016. From Jan. 4–Jan. 8, Cartoon Network will air a new episode of Steven Universe every day.
