As these exclusive photos show, the telly golden couple are set for an emotional reunion on the BBC soap.
Last month, producers hinted Kat, played by Jessie Wallace, and Alfie - Shane Richie - could rekindle their romance before the end of the year.
But we can reveal fans won't have to wait that long to see the Walford lovers back in each others' arms.
The sensational storyline is set to pull EastEnders out of its current ratings crisis.
Earlier this week, under-fire boss Lorraine Newman quit the show amid a slump in viewing figures.
Eastenders was recently beaten by ITV rival Emmerdale, with fans blasting script-writers for dull plots.
The BBC has since sent out an SOS to returning executive producer Dominic Treadwell-Collins to once again take charge of the show.
He previously oversaw one of the show's most successful spells three years ago.
And as our exclusive photos show, producers have already begun filming reconciliation scenes between Kat and Alfie on Albert Square - set to air in September.
The sneak-peak of Kat and Alfie back together will have viewers guessing over the fate of Roxy Mitchell and Michael Moon.
Following his sensational split from Kat last Christmas, Alfie has hooked up with long-term admirer Roxy - with the pair deciding to get hitched and try for a baby.
But he will finish with the Queen Vic landlady when her sister Ronnie returns to the Square.
