"The Demon Headmaster" is returning to CBBC with a modern twist.
The popular children's TV classic - which starred Terrence Hardiman as the terrifying and hypnotic headteacher in the original show - is being revamped for a whole new audience more than 20 years after the final episode aired.
The new 10 part series - set for CBBC and BBC iPlayer - will tell the story of a group of kids at an academy school who quickly realise the Super Head is hypnotising his pupils.
The show first aired in 1996, with two series coming that year before a third and final run hit the small screen in 1998.
Hardiman - who has also appeared in the likes of "The Worst Witch", "Jonathan Creek" and "Doctor Who" - has previously opened up about a revival of the show, and admitted he had thought about how a whole new generation of viewers would react to the character.
He said: "I have very happy memories of working on "The Demon Headmaster". And what fun to play such a megalomaniac!
"[Fans"] most frequent question was, "How did you do that with your eyes?" I wonder how a new generation will react."
However, he also admitted it was very unlikely he'd reprise his role, instead suggesting there's a greater chance of them recasting the part
He added: "I'm now too old to play it, I think... but one never says never! As Sean Connery once said, didn't he? Never say never!
"But I cannot see any possibility of it happening, and if they wanted to redo it, reboot it, I'm sure they would get another actor."
