Remember 'Murphy Brown'? Of course you do. It aired from 1988 to 1998 and starred Candice Bergen in her most iconic role as a whip-smart reporter with a permanently under renovation gaff.
While there are revivals and reboots everywhere these days and yes, some seem very unnecessary, this one we wholly support as we can't wait to see how savvy Murphy Brown will handle this new era of journalism with its social media, fake news and a very different political climate.
Entertainment Weekly have shared the first picture of all of the cast back together, and some of them don't look like they've aged a day in fairness. As you can see, most of the cast are returning including Faith Ford as Corky Sherwood, Joe Regalbuto as Frank Fontana, and Grant Shaud as Miles Silverberg. Original showrunner Diane English is also back.
The new series will see Murphy Brown hosting a morning show while her little fella is now a fully grown man with Jake McDorman playing the role of her son Avery, who has followed in his mother's footsteps and is also a journalist.
'Murphy Brown' was known for its political satire and for reflecting current events as well as of course Murphy's dry one-liners. The sitcom was even famously referenced by Vice President Dan Quayle in a speech during the 1992 presidential campaign.
During its original run, 'Murphy Brown' won 18 Emmys as well as three Golden Globes, two DGA Awards and two WGA Awards.
Production on the 13-episode revival series began this week and will premiere on September 27th on CBS.
