A source close to the situation explained:
This Christmas just got a whole lot merrier!
CBS announced today that they will bring back a classic Christmas episode of I Love Lucy, to air this holiday season!
The special was thought to be lost for decades after only airing once during the series' original run! It wasn't until 1989 that the network finally found this episode!
Now fans will be able to tune in and watch Lucille Ball in this rarely seen special that has been remastered so that it can be rebroadcast in color!
The Christmas special will air December 20th on CBS and will be followed by ANOTHER timeless episode of I Love Lucy, titled Lucy's Italian Movie!
Yep! That's the one where Lucy tries her hand (or her feet, rather) at grape stomping!
We're even MORE excited for Christmas time now!
