Get ready for a return of Who’s the Boss? in the near future. A sequel sitcom is now in the works with Tony Danza and Alyssa Milano reprising their roles as Tony and Samantha Micelli.
Deadline revealed more about the revival of the series:
“The new show will take place 30 years after the events of the original series, centered around former Major League Baseball player/retired housekeeper Tony Micelli and his relationship with his daughter Samantha Micelli. She is now a single mother, living in the house the original series was set in. In line with Norman Lear’s classic shows, the new comedy will explore generational differences, as well as opposing world views and parenting styles within the dynamic of a modern family in 2020.”
Judith Light and Danny Pintauro, who also starred in the original ABC series, are said to be “supportive” of the new project and are expected to be included in some way. Co-star Katherine Helmond passed away last year, at the age of 89.
Milano confirmed the revival of the series on social media.
Who’s the Boss? aired for eight seasons and 196 episodes on ABC. The revival is being shopped to networks and streaming outlets now and is expected to be packaged with the original episodes.
