BBC Three is to return as a broadcast TV channel, six years after it was moved online.
BBC is awaiting the approval of broadcasting watchdog Ofcom but plans to relaunch in January 2022.
The TV channel will be targeted at audiences aged 16 to 34 and will broadcast from 7pm to 4am each day – the same hours as when it closed in 2016.
BBC Three was best known for airing shows such as Gavin And Stacey, Being Human and the Doctor Who spin-off Torchwood.
And fans are calling its reboot the 'best news'.
"Wow, that's some big news. I'm so happy too hear this, since I've missed @bbcthree ever since it came off air all those years back," wrote one.
Another cheered: "YAYYY. Excellent news."
"BBC Three becoming a channel again is the best news ever," a third added.
A fourth also said: "Best. Televisual. News. This. Year."
And there are already calls for which shows should return.
"BRING BACK SOME GIRLS," one fan demanded.
Another said: "Give us another series of Sun, Sex and Suspicious Parents or I will riot!"
"Let’s bring back sun, sex and suspicious parents, young, dumb and living off mum and snog, marry, avoid," added a third.
Another said: "This is good news. Please Bring back #Torchwood #JohnBarrowman #CaptainJackHarknes."
"@bbcthree Bring back Two Pints when you return bbz," a fifth added.
Charlotte Moore, chief content officer of the BBC, said: "BBC Three is a BBC success story, backing creativity, new talent and brave ideas has resulted in hit after hit, from Fleabag and Man Like Mobeen, Ru Paul’s Drag Race UK and Jesy Nelson’s Odd One Out, to Normal People and This Country.
"The BBC needs to back success and make sure its programmes reach as many young people as possible wherever they live in the UK.
"So regardless of the debates about the past, we want to give BBC Three its own broadcast channel again.
"It has exciting, ground breaking content that deserves the widest possible audience and using iPlayer alongside a broadcast channel will deliver the most value."
