Ladies (and gents), it’s time to get in formation — in front of the TV.

Just one day after Netflix dropped a mysterious teaser on their social media channels, posting a single word that has sent Beyoncé fans in a tizzy, the streaming giant has confirmed they’ll soon release a documentary about the singer.

Alongside a trailer, Netflix wrote on social media, “An in-depth look at Beyoncé’s celebrated 2018 Coachella performance from creative concept to cultural movement.”

Clips in the short teaser showed Beyoncé and her dancers rehearsing, and also feature glimpses at her three children.

Ahead of the trailer, Netflix posted just an image featuring the word “Homecoming.” Spelled out in Greek letters against a yellow background, the announcement pointed to the brand new documentary about the legendary entertainer.

Beyoncé fans will only have to wait nine days for the new special, given its release date of April 17.

April 17 is around the one-year anniversary of the singer’s unforgettable performances at the 2018 Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival.

Other clues ahead of the official confirmation? Beyoncé’s Homecoming Scholars Award Program, which she launched last year, and the fact that much of her New Orleans brass band-backed performance saw the singer dressed in a yellow top featuring Greek letters. In fact, Beyoncé sells similar merchandise online under the title “Homecoming.”

Aside from the Big Easy-inspired aspects of the show, Beyoncé’s Coachella run included an onstage reunion with her former Destiny’s Child groupmates Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams.

The gals wowed with memorable jams from the ’90s and early 2000s, belting “Say My Name,” “Soldier” and “Lose My Breath” in matching black and bronze ensembles that paid homage to the iconic looks from their reign on the charts.

Bey, 37, also celebrated a historic moment for both the music festival and herself: “Coachella, thank you for allowing me to be the first black woman to headline,” she said, making the perfect introduction to “Run the World (Girls).”
