Josh Peck, Drake Bell, Josh and Drake


Grandfathered is setting up one heck of a family reunion.

Ever since the Fox comedy starring Josh Peck premiered, we've been impatiently waiting for his former Drake & Josh co-star Drake Bell to come by for a visit—and we're finally getting our wish. The network announced today that Drake will guest-star on the newbie series, reuniting the two former on-screen stepbrothers for the first time on TV since their Nickelodeon comedy went off the air in 2007.

Drake will appear as a flashy tech investor to whom Josh's Gerald and Christina Milian's Vanessa are dying to pitch their app idea. The episode is scheduled to air in spring 2016, Fox says.



Drake & Josh ran on Nickelodeon from 2004 to 2007 for a total of 57 episodes and not only launched the careers of its two stars, but also introduced the world to Miranda Cosgrove. Maybe you've heard of her? (We kid. We know you've heard of her.)

When Josh isn't busy reuniting with former co-stars or starring as a new dad getting to know the estranged father of his own (played by the very charming John Stamos) on the hit series, he's honing his skills as the perfect social media user. "It's so much pressure, between knowing what to post and the right filters," he told E! News recently when we asked him how to curate the ideal Instagram feed. "God, life is hard!"

Something tells life will get a little easier when he's back in the zone with Drake this spring.

Are you stoked for the Drake & Josh reunion this spring? Sound off in the comments below.

Grandfathered airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. on Fox.
