Abigail Breslin is about to have the time of her life.

In the exclusive key art for ABC’s Dirty Dancing below, Breslin and newcomer Colt Prattes embrace in the iconic (albeit ticklish) pose struck by Jennifer Grey and Patrick Swayze in their final dance from the 1987 original. The Scream Queens alum stars in the upcoming adaptation as non-corner-dweller Frances Houseman — a.k.a. “Baby” — with Prattes (Rock of Ages) as Johnny Castle, the dance instructor she falls in love with over an idyllic summer spent at a Catskills resort with her family.

Directed by Wayne Blair and choreographed by Andy Blankenbuehler (Hamilton), the film features songs from the original Dirty Dancing, as well as additional musical performances. Produced by Lionsgate Television in association with Allison Shearmur Productions, the remake also stars Debra Messing, Bruce Greenwood, Nicole Scherzinger, Sarah Hyland, Katey Sagal, and Billy Dee Williams.


The three-hour film airs Wednesday, May 24, at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
