The O.C. is back — and on stage, singing.

I think every O.C. fan has secretly wished for the hit show to return to TV since it left Fox in 2007. Yeah, it's been eight years, but a girl can dream, can't she?

Well, after years of clicking the remote and hoping to see those sweet, tender faces of our favorite spoiled, hormone-enraged and drama-loving high-schoolers — it's finally back. But, this time, the theatrics are hitting the stage.

On June 24, creators Jordan Ross and Lindsey Rosin — the same geniuses who brought us Cruel Intentions: The Musical — announced the official news that The O.C. Musical will open on Aug. 30. And they slowly keep announcing the cast on the official Twitter account.

So far, they've got Drew Seeley (from Jersey Boys) as Luke Ward, Christine Lakin (from Step by Step) as Kirsten Cohen, Jarett Wieselman (senior editor of entertainment at BuzzFeed News) as Josh Schwartz... and Autumn Reeser!

Remember Autumn played Taylor Townsend in the original TV show? Well, goodbye Ms. Goody Two-shoes, and hello Julie Cooper! Yes, that's right — Autumn will be playing the sly and steely Julie Cooper.

We couldn't be more excited to hear the recreations of our favorite emo-California songs that helped us fall in love with Newport Beach. Here's how we took the news when we first heard:

1. Oh, stop joking around, silly
