(NEW YORK) — A reunion bringing together the ladies of The Mary Tyler Moore Show will feature Mary Tyler Moore, Valerie Harper and Cloris Leachman making a joint guest appearance on TV Land’s Hot in Cleveland.
Deadline.com reports the stars will be reunited with their former Mary Tyler Moore Show co-stars Betty White and Georgia Engel. White stars in Hot in Cleveland and Engel has a recurring role on the show.
The special episode of Hot in Cleveland will tape April 5 and feature White and Engel’s characters, Elka and Mamie Sue trying to get their ladies bowling team, The Gorgeous Ladies of Bowling, back together. The former team members are, of course, played by Moore, Leachman and Harper.
The news comes just weeks after Valerie Harper announced that she has terminal brain cancer.
It will be the first time that the five former MTM cast mates have been in front of the camera together since the finale of The Mary Tyler Moore Show in 1977.
TV Land announced on Wednesday that Hot in Cleveland, which also stars Valerie Bertinelli, Jane Leeves and Wendie Malick, will return for a fifth season.
