A new iteration of Who’s The Boss? is in development.

Variety has confirmed that a sequel series to the classic sitcom is in the works at Sony Pictures Television, with original stars Tony Danza and Alyssa Milano onboard to reprise their roles.

The new show will take place 30 years after the events of the original series and be centred around former major-league baseball player and retired housekeeper Tony Micelli (Danza) and his relationship with his daughter Samantha Micelli (Milano), who is now a single mother and living in the house in which the original series was set.

Original cast members Judith Light and Danny Pintauro not currently involved with the series but could become so if the creators can think of a creative way to work their characters into the show.

The original Who’s The Boss? ran for eight seasons and 196 episodes on ABC from 1984-1992. It received 10 Emmy nominations and five Golden Globes during its run.

Who’s The Boss? is now the latest classic sitcom to get some kind of reboot or revival treatment. Other recent examples include 0ne Day At ATime, Full House, Murphy Brown, Will & Grace and Roseanne (now The Conners). – Reuters
