While Mr. Show went off air nearly 20 years ago, there have long been rumors of a new collaboration between the two.

On Thursday, Netflix announced they have ordered four half-hour episodes of With Bob and David and one 60 minute "making-of" episode.

The description of the series is:

After being dishonorably discharged from the Navy Seals, Bob and David are back serving our country the way they do best, making sketch comedy. Four half-hours of brand new comedy featuring all new characters, all new scenes, and most importantly, all new wigs.

The show will be executive produced by Odenkirk and Cross, as well as Tim Heidecker, Eric Wareheim (of Tim & Eric), and others. There is no set premiere date.

Update — Friday, April 3, 2:30pm ET:

David Cross announced on Facebook that they are "a little over halfway through shooting the pre-tapes" for the new Netflix sketch show, and will soon begin shooting the live parts of the series.

They will tape the live segments in Glendale, California over four nights starting on April 15. Cross said that he will post information about getting tickets on his Facebook page soon.
