Airing this spring, the special, two-part episode will take viewers back to 1973 and 1986. We'll meet a number of main characters in their youth, each played by different, younger actors than usual. Confirmed so far:

  • Kay Panabaker as Kitty
  • Anna Wood as Sarah
  • Kasey Campbell as Kevin
  • Cody Longo as Tommy
