Shaun of the Dead is coming back this Halloween on Disney Channel. Yes, really.

File this one under awesome of the day: Simon Pegg and Nick Frost’s characters from Shaun of the Dead are coming to the small screen this Halloween. On the Disney Channel.

The Disney Channel has been putting out one of the quirkiest, most interesting kids' shows of the modern era with Phineas and Ferb the past few years, and now they’re adding another feather to the cameo cap.

Pegg has confirmed he and Frost’s characters Shaun and Ed will be popping up in Danville for the upcoming Halloween special of the popular animated series. The show is a lot of fun and has parodied and poked at a ton of different genres and tropes in recent the years. There aren’t a lot of animated shows that could pull this off, but we’re actually pretty psyched to see how this plays out.

Phineas and Ferb has always gone all-out for holiday episodes, and bringing in the Shaun of the Dead gang should be a nice move to attract some parents and adults to check it out this October. Are you glad to hear Shaun and Ed are coming back?
