The stars of Girlfriends are getting back together.

Golden Brooks, Persia White, and Jill Marie Jones will join Tracee Ellis Ross on an upcoming episode of ABC’s Black-ish. The episode titled “Feminisn’t” is scheduled to air on Tuesday, Oct. 8.

The reunion comes after the actresses said goodbye to their beloved comedy in 2008. Entertainment Weekly ran a sneak peek Thursday of the foursome together 11 years later.

Ross, who plays Johnson family matriarch Rainbow, told the magazine she had fun shooting the episode.

“Being able to merge the worlds of Black-ish and Girlfriends was surreal for me—and so much fun,” Ross said. “These are women I grew up with and love deeply and it was easy to tap back into the magic of our chemistry and how much we love each other. It was giggles on top of giggles on top of giggles.”

Here’s the storyline: “When Bow [Ross] learns that Diane [Marsai Martin] and Ruby [Jenifer Lewis] don’t believe in feminism, she brings Diane to meet the women in her feminist group. Bow’s friend Abby [guest stare Nadia Quinn] thinks the group needs to be more inclusive, so Bow invites three of her girlfriends to join. Meanwhile, Junior [Marcus Scribner] and Jack [Miles Brown] help Dre [Anthony Anderson] after he realizes he is out of touch with modern day feminism.”

Girlfriends debuted in 2000 on UPN and aired on the network for six seasons before moving to The CW for its final two seasons.

Black-ish premieres on Tuesday, Sept. 24 at 9:30 p.m. ET on ABC.
