The landmark sketch-comedy show “SCTV” is making a comeback on Netflix. The streaming giant announced Thursday that it has tapped Martin Scorsese to direct an upcoming special exploring the Canadian series’ legacy. 

“An Afternoon With SCTV,” moderated by late-night host Jimmy Kimmel next month, will reunite comedy legends and former “SCTV” co-stars Joe Flaherty, Eugene Levy, Andrea Martin, Catherine O’Hara, Martin Short and Dave Thomas.

The reunion will take place on May 13 in Toronto’s historic Elgin Theatre and selections from the event will be used in the upcoming, Scorsese-helmed Netflix comedy special.
