It looks like fans of the iconic sitcom Girlfriends are getting their longtime wish. Eleven years after the show's series finale, the ladies have reunited for something epic!

Tracee Ellis Ross took to Instagram on Thursday (Sept. 12) with her former co-stars Golden Brooks, Persia White and Jill Marie Jones, where she announced that they've all come together for an upcoming episode of her ABC sitcom Black-ish.

"So we have an extra-special episode of Black-ish, and it's a feminist episode and I brought in some backup from some of my girlfriends," she said in the video before panning to the ladies. "What? Shut every door!"

Take a look at the actresses, who don't seem to have aged a day, below:

Ross also spoke with Entertainment Weekly about the decision to bring her former cast mates on for the now highly anticipated episode.

"The timing was perfect to be able to bring Girlfriends to a whole new audience," she said. "We haven't all been together on camera since 2006. Girlfriends ran for eight years and was important to so many people. Being able to merge the worlds of Black-ish and Girlfriends was surreal for me — and so much fun. 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."

Get ready to see the gang back in action on the October 8 episode of Black-ish, titled "Feminisn't."
