The cast of the new season of Food Network’s Worst Cooks in America Celebrity Edition has been revealed, and millennials, this one’s for you. As with the original, this Food Network spin-off gives nine self-proclaimed cooking-challenged celebrities the opportunity to improve their skills while earning a nice cash prize in the process, but this time, it’s themed.

Aptly titled Worst Cooks in America Celebrity Edition: That’s So ’90s, the upcoming season has gathered some of our favorite sitcom and reality TV stars to form what host Anne Burrell has dubbed a “hilarious and super fun group.” The cast consists of All That’s Lori Beth Denberg, Elisa Donovan from both the Clueless movie and CW adaptation, Growing Pains’ Tracey Gold, Jennie Kwan from California Dreams, Matthew Lawrence from Boy Meets World, Full House’s Jodie Sweetin, Nicholle Tom from The Nanny, Curtis Williams from The Parent ‘Hood, and Mark Long from the very first season of Road Rules.

“While these recruits were Hollywood darlings on television in the ’90s, they never won anyone over with their cooking – so Anne and Jeff [Mauro] guide them through a series of rigorous challenges to improve their culinary game,” a press release for the new season revealed. “From a short-order diner relay to superhero-themed obstacle course, the challenges are wilder and more outrageous than ever.”

The stars will be coached by Burrell and co-host Jeff Mauro and will not only compete for bragging rights for themselves and their coaches, but for the chance to win $25,000 for the charity of their choice. And, of course, this group of ’90s stars is keeping the lighthearted tone of previous seasons of Worst Cooks.

“This cast is so much fun — and most of them have never spent this much time in the kitchen,” said Food Network president Courtney White. “The season is a nostalgia-filled blast with familiar faces, hilarious challenges, and some impressive culinary transformations.”

The upcoming season is set to premiere Sunday, April 24 at 9 p.m ET, but if you can’t catch the show Sunday nights on Food Network, Worst Cooks in America Celebrity Edition: That’s So ’90s will also be available to stream on Discovery+.
