Fans of classic sitcoms may want to tune into "Will & Grace" next year.

The NBC comedy, which is currently in its final season, will honor "I Love Lucy" in an episode that is set to air in the spring, according to Entertainment Weekly. The episode will feature three dream sequences that feature Grace (Debra Messing), Jack (Sean Hayes) and Karen (Megan Mullally) playing "re-imagined versions of iconic scenes from the original series."

Messing will play Lucy in the unforgettable "Vitameatavegamin" scene, Hayes will play the star in the iconic chocolate factory scene while Mullally will star in Lucy's legendary wine-stomping scene. Will (Eric McCormack) is taking on the role of Ricky Ricardo in all the scenes while the other stars will rotate as Fred and Ethel.

On top of that, Lucie Arnaz, the daughter of Lucielle Ball and Desi Arnaz, will make a cameo in the episode during the chocolate factory scene.

"I know my parents would be over the moon to be honored in this way and by such similar talents who bring the same kind of joy to audiences as they did in 'I Love Lucy,'" Arnaz in a statement to EW. "I'm thrilled to be invited to the party and will do my best to honor the memory of Elvia Allman's iconic performance."

"Will & Grace" currently airs on Thursdays.
