Another beloved series is making its way back to television. CBS announced today that a new installment of Murphy Brown is in the works for a return to its original network.
On-board for the revival are both creator Diane English and star Candice Bergen, who will reprise her iconic role as the famous investigative journalist 20 years after the show first went off the air. Talks are reportedly underway for other original cast members to return as well, but nothing has been firmed up at this point.
Murphy Brown premiered in 1988, airing for 10 years as one of television's top comedies. Over the course of its 247 episodes, the series used political satire to tell stories that reflected current world events and politics. Along the way, the show picked up 18 Emmy Awards, including two for Outstanding Comedy Series.
Look for the Murphy Brown revival as part of the 2018-2019 television season.
