Yep, the Teletubbies are coming back.

On Thursday, Nickelodeon announced plans to bring back "Teletubbies." Nick Jr. will air all new episodes of the children's show in 2016.

BBC-owned channel CBeebies first announced plans for the reboot to air in the U.K. last June. The company has commissioned 60 new 12-minute episodes in the U.S. on Nick Jr. and in the U.K. According to The Telegraph, Jim Broadbent, aka Professor Slughorn in "Harry Potter," will voice a talking trumpet in the new series. Now we just wonder who the new sun baby will be, since the original one is all grown up now.

But just in case you watch to re-watch the original "Teletubbies," Nickelodeon has also acquired rights to all 365 episodes of the original series, which first debuted in 1997. The episodes will be available on the network's mobile subscription service, Noggin. Get ready for lots more of Tinky Winky, Dipsy, Laa-Laa and Po.
