But it's all going to be okay, because the cast is planning a reunion. And we are here for it.

In case you somehow don't recall, Student Bodies was a Canadian TV show about students at rival high school newspapers (but also friendship, and growing up, and being yourself, and all that good stuff) that originally aired between 1997 and 1999.

A Facebook page called "Student Bodies 20" popped up last week with a video that proves the '90s are alive and well in our hearts.

With more than 7,500 shares and counting, Canadians are clearly hungry for some nostalgia.

Let's be honest, the world has been ~not great~ lately.

Maybe all my annoying tweets tagging @Ross_Hull over the years finally gotten to him @studentbodies20 #studentbodiesreunion #studentbodies20

We need this.

I am LIVING for the fact that in 2017 we can possibly have a #StudentBodies reunion. Thank you @studentbodies20 ❤️❤️❤️

Like, now.

@studentbodies20 YEEESSSS PLLLLEEEAAASEEE WE NEED THE REUNION 😀😀😀😀🍻

Mik Perlus — aka Student Voice editor Victor Kane — told BuzzFeed Canada the cast is "completely blown away" by how much support the idea is getting from fans.

"When we realized it was the 20-year anniversary we all kind of woke up and thought, we should do something," said Perlus.

"Before we did anything, we wanted to see if anyone else out there cares about the show as much as we do."

As much as Student Bodies was a big deal for Canadians of a certain age, it was a big deal for the cast, too. They've kept in touch since the show ended and they're all on board to reunite.

"I think all of us agree that that was a particularly special experience," said Perlus.

"It just hit us right at the right time of our lives, as were were leaving our high school years behind. We just spent a lot of time together and we became a really tight group of friends."

He's a meteorologist at Global News.

It's been 20 years since #StudentBodies ?! Time for a reunion? #tbt https://t.co/TuqruQmImV

Perlus was tight-lipped about what the reunion will actually look like, but he promised fans will get to play a role. But, they'll need your help to get it going.

Perlus said the first step is to build momentum to get sponsors and broadcasters on board. So, he's asking you to share the Facebook video, follow them on Twitter and Instagram, and hashtag your little hearts out.

"This is really a celebration of a particular time, the '90s, and a particular type of show that really doesn’t exist on Canadian television anymore," said Perlus.

"It's about us sharing that celebration with everybody who watched the show."
