Following a two-decade hiatus, Disney Channel is bringing back its popular unscripted docu-series Bug Juice. The series has begun production and is slated to air in early 2018.

Marking Disney Channel’s foray into unscripted television, the Evolution Media-produced reality series initially aired for three seasons from February 1998 to October 2001. Also produced by Evolution, the new version will focus on a group of kids ages 10 to 12 as they head to Waterford, Maine to attend Camp Waziyatah. (Evolution has also worked with Disney Channel on Movie Surfers, Totally in Tune and Totally Hoops.)

Douglas Ross, Alex Baskin, Tina Gazzero Clapp and Toni Gallagher will serve as executive producers.

The move falls in line with a wave of unscripted kids content, which include¬†Bristow Global Media‘s new TVO series It’s My Party and Universal Kids’s upcoming reality competition series¬†Top Chef Junior.
