Hey children of the 80s! Get ready for some nostalgia — Jim Henson’s Muppet TV series “Fraggle Rock” is heading back to HBO.

If you’ll recall, the show features puppets called Fraggles that live underground as well other puppets called Doozers and Gorgs.

According to the Los Angeles Times, the 96-episode series has been digitally remastered by the film restoration studio illuminate, and will be airing on HBO at the end of this year. “Fraggle Rock” will also be available on HBO Go, HBO Now and HBO on Demand.

“In remastering the series, illuminate has created a contemporary look for the series with meticulous attention paid to every detail — sharpening the images, cleaning up the contrast, increasing the vibrancy of the colors and re-formatting for wide-screen — all under the careful supervision of Brian Henson,” said Richard Goldsmith, executive vice president of global distribution for the Jim Henson Co., in a news release.
