The pair won't be trainees like they were when they first appeared on Produce 101. Instead, they're coming in as special guests to give some encouragement to the trainees on the series.
Produce 48, which is the third season of the Produce 101 franchise, will bring together 48 trainees from Japan's AKB48 system and 48 girls from South Korea to form a special Korean-Japanese girl group that will promote globally.
Filming has already started, and the show will officially premiere in June.
