Tiffany Haddish has been making major moves in 2019 and it looks like she’s not going to stop anytime soon.

On Tuesday, ABC announced the Eritrean-American comedian and actress as the new host and executive producer of the reboot of popular show Kids Say the Darndest Things, Variety reports.

Initially hosted by Bill Cosby, the funny kids’ show, which was then aired on CBS from 1998 to 2000 was inspired by radio and television personality Art Linkletter’s House Party which he initially hosted on his radio show before moving it to TV.

“When I was dreaming of stars I wanted to bring to ABC, Tiffany Haddish was top of my list,” ABC entertainment president Karey Burke said, according to Variety. “Tiffany starring in and producing this iconic series is everything I hoped for.”

Eric Schotz, who was executive producer when Bill Cosby was host will also return as a co-executive producer for the reboot.

According to Variety, ABC reports the segments for the new Kids Say the Darndest Things will include:

“‘Kids Rule,’ in which kids explain to Tiffany the rules for everything from sportsmanship to dating; ‘Love Talk,’ where Tiffany seeks advice on her love life; ‘Best Carpool Ever,’ with Tiffany taking on carpool duty with a minivan full of kids; ‘Granny Tiff,’ when Tiffany, in prosthetics and dressed up as an older woman, receives technology advice from the kids; and more.”

Haddish, who starred in critically acclaimed 2017 box office breaking movie Girls Trip shared her excitement about her new project and touched on what she’s eager to learn from the kids who come on set.

“I’m excited to hear what kids have to say these days because I can’t understand what they are saying on social media,” she said. “They’re using too many abbreviations!”

She also took to her Instagram page to announce the reboot:

The show will premiere this fall on ABC and will be shown at 8PM ET on Sundays.
