'The Facts Of Life' Cast Reuniting For Holiday Special 'You Light Up My Christmas'

Believe it, Facts Of Life fans, you're going to get to see all of your favorite characters again!

Please try and refrain from jumping with joy, you'll knock your laptop off your legs.

The sun is shining, the birds are singing and the day is glorious!


Because (some of) the cast of The Facts Of Life is back together again!

This time, Lisa Whelchel, Mindy Cohn, and Nancy McKeon will all be starring in a movie called You Light Up My Christmas.

What's it going to be about?


Well I'm glad you asked.

It's going to be on Lifetime's "It’s a Wonderful Lifetime" programming, and will be about a woman named Emma who returns to her hometown to find that the town has lost the holiday spirit!

Oh no! That sounds terrible!


I know!

Anyways, the movie will star Kim Fields (who is also an executive producer on the project) and she said working with these ladies was a real treat. And why wouldn't it be?

In her own words: “It’s been amazing to work together again and have the ladies’ input on their characters from their wardrobe to names, as well as provide fun inside jokes for fans”.


She continues with a heartwarming tribute to a member of the original Facts Of Life cast who passed away:

“I also had the production name the ice-skating rink in the movie after our dear friend, Charlotte Rae, who passed away last year"

How nice!
