Christmas really is about miracles.

The four stars of the hit 1980s comedy series “The Facts of Life” will be reuniting in a new holiday movie on Lifetime.

“You Light Up My Christmas” is set to premiere at 8 p.m. Dec. 1 on the network — and Lisa Whelchel, Mindy Cohn, Kim Fields and Nancy McKeon will all be there.

Fields, who stars in the movie and is serving as executive producer, told People that she contacted her former castmates and they were eager to get back together.

“We’re sisters. We have a ball when we get to hang out personally and holidays are about family, memories and fun,” Fields said in a statement. “So, when the opportunity came up to combine all of that with You Light Up My Christmas, I invited Lisa, Mindy, and Nancy to make some fun, Christmas cameos and was thrilled they all enthusiastically jumped on board.

“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,” Fields told the magazine.

Although their beloved costar Charlotte Rae died in 2018, Fields says she is still part of the movie, thanks to a special tribute.

“I also had the production name the ice-skating rink in the movie after our dear friend,” Fields said of Rae, whose character Mrs. Garrett was spun off from Diff’rent Strokes. We truly are a family so it was great to work together on something new!”

Fans of the series aren’t off base if they secretly hope another cast member pops up for the reunion. George Clooney joined the show in 1985 in the role of George Burnett, which he played during the show’s seventh and eighth seasons.

Now that would be a Christmas miracle.
