The 'Ugly Betty' Reunion Of Your Dreams Is Happening This Summer

You can start freaking out now.
This is NOT a drill, folks!

Betty Suarez and the staff of Mode magazine are getting back together! Well, at least for a night.

An "Ugly Betty" reunion is being organized for this summer at the ATX Television Festival in Austin, Texas, which Entertainment Weekly announced on Wednesday. America Ferrera, who won a Golden Globe for her role as "Betty," is confirmed to attend along with nine of her fellow cast mates. 

EW will host and moderate the closing night event, much like it did last summer for the much-anticipated reunion of the "Gilmore Girls" cast at the festival.

“I am so excited for the 'Ugly Betty' cast to be reuniting at ATX,” Ferrera said to Entertainment Weekly. “They are truly my family and we can’t wait to celebrate together.” 

Ferrera will be joined by Eric Mabius, Vanessa Williams, Becki Newton, Michael Urie, Ashley Jensen, Ana Ortiz, Tony Plana, Mark Indelicato and Rebecca Romijn at the June 11 event. While further details have yet to be announced, it is likely the event will be a moderated discussion that will be available via the EW website similar to that of last year's "Gilmore Girls" reunion.

This wouldn't be the first time the cast got together since the series ended six years ago, in April 2015 some of the "Ugly Betty" alumns got together to celebrate Ferrera's 30th birthday.

And who knows, maybe this summer reunion will inspire Netflix to follow its "Gilmore Girls" revival with one for "Ugly Betty," too.

The ATX Television Festival will be held June 9-12 in Austin, Texas.
