The future looks brighter for some longtime Coney Island businesses set to be kicked off the boardwalk.

NY1 has learned a deal has been reached to keep seven of the eight businesses open for one more summer season.

Sources say the new one-year lease agreements will be signed Monday.

The businesses were facing eviction after their leases expired in November, and were battling in court to stay open before the deal was reached.

The only one of the eight that won't be back is "Shoot the Freak," which was demolished to make way for an entrance to a new amusement park.

Coney Island's traditional opening day is Palm Sunday, which falls on April 17 this year.
