Air dates have been changed to September 30th and October 7th respectively, which means they will now screen on Wednesdays rather than the initially announced Tuesdays.
The two Hey Hey it's Saturday reunion specials will air on Tuesday nights, beginning later this month.
The nostalgic reunions follow a long campaign, both by fans and host Daryl Somers, to see the show back on television.
The two specials will be live to air from its traditional home at Channel Nine studios in Melbourne, where it aired live for 27 remarkable years. It's back at 7:30pm September 29th and October 6th.
The show's return comes just shy of the 10-year anniversary of its final episode, when it succumbed to cost cutting.
At this stage Molly Meldrum is unable to participate due to his on-going contract with the Seven Network. That hasn't precluded him from appearing in an upcoming Spicks & Specks episode, despite the stellar ratings that attracts.
Also unconfirmed at this stage is Ernie Carroll, the man behind Ossie Ostrich. Carroll, who retired from the show in 1994, is now 80 years old. While Nine isn't ruling his appearance out, it does seem highly unlikely. Jackie MacDonald is also reportedly a no.
Nine's strategy in moving the show to a Tuesday night is to combat the competition on rival networks. It will be pitted against some big hitters, including Packed to the Rafters, NCIS and the upcoming The Spearman Experiment. While nostalgic fans will remember watching the show while getting ready for a big night out, Nine knows there are a lot more eyeballs watching the box on a Tuesday night when it can maximise its advertising revenue.
If the show works, especially in its second special, it could get the green light to be a regular.
So get ready for the return of such favourites as Celebrity Head, Wot Cheezes Me Orf, Media Watch, Phunny Fotos and, of course, Red Faces. In fact, Nine is looking for contestants and have an open call for tickets.
