If you're like us, you're eagerly awaiting the return of Trading Spaces on TLC in 2018. Back when it premiered, it was the biggest success the network had ever had and was the original home improvement reality show (you're welcome, Fixer Upper). But for that same reason, it's only natural some people are concerned the reboot won't do the original justice.

But don't worry, no one will be feeling that way after hearing the most recent news. Along with the original host, Paige Davis, designers Doug Wilson, Genevieve Gorder, Hildi Santo-Tomas, Vern Yip, Frank Bielic and Laurie Smith will all be making an appearance on the remake. Even better: Carpenters Ty Pennington and Carter Oosterhouse have signed on, too. We're not crying, you're crying.

While TLC confirmed Wilson and Santo-Tomas will be designers, it's unclear what the other original cast members' roles will be at this time. But based on what Yip told HouseBeautiful.com earlier this year, we bet he'll be a designer, too. "I think it would be so much fun, because the game has changed so much," he said. "But I wouldn't be able to do the same pace in a weekend and I have kids now." Fair. Gordon also took to Instagram to share the news with her fans:

Along with your favorites, the network also plans to introduce new talent to the show, including designers Sabrina Soto, John Gidding and Kahi Lee, who all have experience in the home design world and on television. Brett Tutor and Joanie Sprague have also signed on as carpenters for the show.

If you ask us (and our DVRs), 2018 can't come soon enough.
