The '90s gave us some of the most iconic and memorable teen comedies ever, and She's All That is no exception.

Just like many of our beloved flicks, She's All That is getting a remake and Netflix has picked up the exclusive rights, Deadline reports.

The remake will be a gender-swapped reinterpretation of the original, aptly titled He's All That.

TikTok sensation-turned-actress Addison Rae stars opposite Cobra Kai's Tanner Buchanan and original star Rachel Leigh Cook who will play a brand new character.

Directed by Robert Iscove, She's All That starred Freddie Prinze Jr. and Rachel Leigh Cook.

Not only did it have Leigh Nash's famed Kiss Me as its theme song, it also gave us that iconic glasses scene.

Addison will star as Padgett Sawyer, inspired by Freddie Prinze Jr.'s Zackary Siler role. The new spin will be told from a teenage girl's point of view. The contemporary story follows an influencer (Addison) who accepts a challenge to turn the school's biggest loser (Tanner) into prom king.

Additional cast includes Madison Pettis, Peyton Meyer, Isabella Crovetti, Annie Jacob, Myra Molloy and Matthew Lillard.

Mark Waters, the director behind arguably the best teen comedy ever Mean Girls and the Freaky Friday remake starring Lindsay Lohan, Jamie Lee Curtis and Chad Michael Murray, is at the helm of He's All That.

The screenwriter behind the 1999 film She's All That has written the remake, and the film's original producers, Jennifer Gigbot and Andrew Panay, have also returned.

We're hoping for plenty of nods to the original.

Back in September last year, Addison shared the news of her casting to her fans on Instagram, writing: "AHHHHH!!! My dreams are coming true!!!

"I'm so grateful for the opportunities that have been presented to me and none of it would have ever happened without every single one of you."

Netflix will release the film globally later this year.
