Yasss! Dirty Dancing is making a comeback.

The 80's cult classic is set for a TV remake, with the reboot set to air on ABC, with Abigail Breslin starring in it as Baby, according to TheWrap. Lionsgate TV's new Dirty Dancing will be three hours long and adapted from the 1987 flick starring Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey.

There's no word yet on when it will (or start shooting), but Abigail couldn't wait to share the news with fans. After it was announced, the Scream Queens star hit Twitter, writing, "So excited to finally be able to tell you I'm playing Baby! #nobodyputsbabyinthecorner."Like the original, the new Dirty Dancing centers on Baby (Abigail), "an innocent young woman in the early 1960's who vacations with her affluent parents and siblings in the Catskill Mountains and falls for the resort's working-class dance instructor," according to Deadline.

There have been rumors for a while that there would be a Dirty Dancing remake coming soon, especially after a Lionsgate-backed miniseries was set to begin shooting in North Carolina, according to Today. But, that was canceled in July.
