The original "Demon Headmaster" star Terrence Hardiman is excited for the reboot.
The CBBC classic is being revived for a whole new audience two decades after it was last on air, and the show's leading man - who played the terrifying and hypnotic schoolmaster - has confirmed he won't be reprising his role.
The 81-year-old actor told RadioTimes.com: "I have happy memories of working in The Demon Headmaster in the nineties, and I wish every success to the new production. I expect to be totally hypnotised."
Instead of recasting from the original show, the highly anticipated reboot will see a new headteacher - now referred to as a Super Head - wreak terror on a brand new school.
Set in an Academy School, the new series will be based on Gillian Cross" 2017 novel "The Demon Headmaster: Total Control".
However, reviews can have confidence in the revival seeing as Cross was the author behind the books which were adapted for the original series.
A BBC rep added that while there'll be "a few treats for fans who grew up with the original how," the new programme will be "primarily aimed at new viewers".
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."
