After 20 years away from the role, Family Matters star Jaleel White confirmed the character's return and posted a picture of Urkel, his Urkelbot and the Scooby Gang on Instagram.

After premiering in 1989, Family Matters aired for nine seasons across ABC and CBS. While the show initially focused on the relatively normal Winslow family, their nerdy neighbor Urkel quickly became the star of the series after he was introduced in the middle of the show's first season. Throughout the early and mid '90s, the show was a core part of ABC's popular "TGIF" Friday night lineup.
Steve Urkel will hardly be the only guest star on Scooby Doo and Who. The series will see Mystery Inc. team up with a variety of real and fictional guest stars including Wonder Woman, Sherlock Holmes, Batman, Whoopi Goldberg, Ricky Gervais, Chris Paul and the Flash. The 13-episode first season of the show will stream on WarnerMedia's Boomerang streaming service, which specializes in new and classic cartoons.
Scooby-Doo and Guess Who? begins streaming June 27 on Boomerang, with new episodes each following Thursday.
