The countdown to Reno 911!‘s return is officially on!
On Friday, Quibi shared two side-by-side photos of the cast to Twitter: one was captured in 2003 and the other was taken behind-the-scenes on the revival.
“Quibi is making Reno safe again,” the streaming platform tweeted.
The original series premiered in 2003 and was led by creators and cast members Robert Ben Garant, Thomas Lennon and Kerri Kenney-Silver. All three are returning to write the show’s new season, Variety reported.
“Pic on the right was taken in 2003. Pic on the left was taken 4 days ago. See you n April on Quibi!” Wendi McLendon-Covey, whose character was killed off in the show’s fifth season, tweeted on Friday about the images.

On Wednesday, Kenney-Silver shared a video of several cast members being silly on set.
“Family fun time,” she captioned the post.
“Reno 911! holds a special place in our hearts, and it will be a delight to get the original cast back together for ‘re-boot goofin,’” Lennon, 49, said in a release in December. “Hopefully Nick Swardson can still roller skate. Quibi’s short format seems custom made for our show.”
The mockumentary-style show parodied Cops and inspired the film Reno 911!: Miami.
In October, McLendon-Covey, 50, told PeopleTV that there was “serious” talk about it rebooting.
“Reno has now been so far in the past that I don’t remember a lot about it and that’s a shame,” she said, before adding, “One of my treasured memories is always working in an actual cop station that didn’t shut down for us.”
“There’s been talk about it,” she said about a potential reboot, before adding that the talk was “pretty serious.”
The Quibi videos are expected to be short, but will still tell long-form stories, just over a longer period of time. Quibi launches April 6.
