Jim Carrey is back!

The Bruce Almighty actor will be seen on the small screen for the first time in a new dramedy series titled Kidding. 90's kids rejoice!

Carrey will play Jeff, a.k.a. Mr. Pickles, an icon of children’s television, who also owns a multi-million-dollar branding empire. The series will focus on Jeff's family troubles and how he finds his way through the crisis.

According to Variety, Kidding will reunite Carrey with Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind director Michel Gondry, who will be directing this as well.

"No one inhabits a character like Jim Carrey, and this role – which is like watching Humpty Dumpty after the fall – is going to leave television audiences wondering how they went so long without him," says Showtime (TV network) president and CEO David Nevins.

He adds, "With his ‘Eternal Sunshine’ partner Michel Gondry on board to direct, we are on our way to a magnetic, volcanic and emotional viewing experience."

No release date has yet been announced for Kidding but this one's definitely on our radar!
