Carol Burnett and Tim Conway will be so glad to have some more time together pretty soon.

The former "Carol Burnett Show" co-stars will reunite on an upcoming episode of the TV Land hit "Hot in Cleveland," the network said last week. The episode, which tapes March 22, will air in August.

On the episode, Burnett will play Penny, the mother of Wendie Malick's Victoria, and a local TV legend and puppeteer on a children's program.

Conway, who appeared in an episode of the show in 2010, will reprise his role as Nick, a former flame of Elka (Betty White) who now has his eye on Penny.

Burnett and Conway, who co-starred on "The Carol Burnett Show" from 1967 to 1978, join a long list of nostalgia-fueled guest appearances on the show, including Mary Tyler Moore, Heather Locklear, Huey Lewis and Don Rickles.
