More than 30 years after Ferris Bueller's Day Off hit the big screen, the cast of the iconic teenage comedy is set to reunite on Josh Gad's quarantine YouTube series, Reunited Apart. Previous episodes featured reunions from the casts of The Goonies, Back to the Future, Lord of the Rings, Splash, and Ghostbusters.

Joining Gad in the new episode are Matthew Broderick (WarGames, Godzilla, Election), Alan Ruck (Succession), Mia Sara (Legend, Timecop), Golden Globe nominee Jennifer Grey (Dirty Dancing), who portrayed the roles of Ferris, Cameron, Sloane and Jeanie, respectively, and more! However, as the two recalled, a bad wardrobe test with the cast had John Hughes thinking that maybe things wouldn't go very smoothly on set.

The cast of Ferris Bueller's Day Off is scheduled to appear on Gad's final Reunited Apart episode on Sunday at 12 p.m. ET/9 a.m. PT. Ben Stein - who previously wrote speeches for presidents Richard Nixon and Gerald Ford - also turns up to discuss playing Bueller's economics teacher, revealing that much of that infamously boring lesson was ad-libbed.

"Life moves pretty fast. if you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it", Grey, 60, captioned the pictures, referencing one of Broderick's most famous lines from the movie. But it's followed by a little trivia section with special guest Jake Gyllenhaal asking questions to the cast. We won't spoil who appears in the incredible line-up, because it's kind of an wonderful line-up, but fans of National Lampoon's Vacation franchise, Uncle Buck, The Breakfast Club, Sixteen Candles, Pretty in Pink, Curly Sue, Mr. Mom, and Planes, Trains and Automobiles, will not be disappointed.

Reunited Apart with Josh Gad is directed by James Merryman who co-produces along with Meghan Monaco.
