MASH fans are in for a treat as Hawkeye is getting the band back together, 35 years after the iconic show left our TV screens.
Hot Lips Houlihan, BJ, Klinger, and Radar O’Reilly will be joining Alan Alda for an episode of his podcast, ‘Clear + Vivid’.
Alda, who recently revealed he has Parkinson’s Disease, told Washington-area radio station WTOP: “Loretta Swit and I will be talking from New York, Mike Farrell will be in a studio in L.A., Jamie Farr will be on the phone from his house in Bell Canyon and Gary Burghoff will be on the phone from Northern California."
The reunion of the surviving cast members was meant to happen earlier in the year, but had to be postponed as Jamie Farr, who played Max Flinger, nearly lost his home in the devastating California wildfires.

It’ll be the first time they’ve all gotten together in years, Alda continues, saying of the podcast episode itself: "I want to talk about what we discovered as actors that helped us relate in ways that are necessary in a show like that.
"These ways we found in connecting are unusual… I’ve been acting a long time and I’ve never seen people do what we did.”
MASH followed the lives of a mobile Army surgical hospital during the Korean War, and its tragicomic tone struck a chord with its audience, with the show running for eleven years.
The 1983 finale, entitled "Goodbye, Farewell and Amen", racked up more than 100 million viewers – a TV record that has never been beaten, and is unlikely to be given the expansion of media cosumption.
