A new, hour-long episode of 30 Rock will air in July with the show’s original stars including Tina Fey, Alec Baldwin, Tracey Morgan, and Jane Krakowski.
The remotely-produced special event is part of NBCUniversal’s Upfront presentation.
The beloved NBC comedy took its final bow in 2013 after seven seasons.
The 30 Rock crew is getting back together again. Tina Fey, Alec Baldwin, Tracy Morgan, Jane Krakowski, Jack McBrayer, and more cast members from the hit NBC comedy will reunite and reprise their roles for a new, hour-long installment of the series, which will air on July 16 at 8 p.m. on NBC.
The reunion, which was virtually produced, was arranged for NBCUniversal’s Upfront, the presentation TV networks and media companies give to advertisers and press to preview their upcoming programming. While characters like Liz Lemon (Fey) and Kenneth (McBrayer) will grace the screen, talent from other NBC series will make guest apperances as well.
“We’re all happy to have this excuse to (remotely) work together again for NBC,” Fey and fellow executive producer Robert Carlock said in a statement, per Variety. “To quote Kenneth the Page, there are only two things we love in this world, television and everyone.”
The 30 Rock episode will also highlight NBC’s new streaming service Peacock, which launches on July 15. Viewers who miss the special on July 16 can watch the rebroadcast on July 17 on USA, Bravo, E!, Oxygen, SYFY, CNBC, and online at Peacock.
30 Rock aired on NBC from 2006 to 2013, lasting for seven seasons.
