Posted Wednesday January 22, 2014 3:50 PM GMT

The lovable Bill Cosby is headed back to the small screen in a new NBC sitcom.

The network announced the news on Wednesday, confirming the comedian’s role in the multigenerational comedy produced by Tom Werner. Bill’s worked with Werner in the past on both “The Cosby Show” and “Cosby.”

Bill’s wildly iconic series ran on NBC from 1984 to 1992.

In related news, the 76-year-old star recently told Yahoo that he wanted to return to television, saying, "I want to be able to deliver a wonderful show to [a] network. Because there is a viewership out there that wants to see comedy, and warmth, and love, and surprise, and cleverness, without going into the party attitude."

Are you excited to see Bill back on TV?
