Per People, the revival will take place 30 years after the events of Who’s the Boss?, centering around Samantha’s new life as a single mother and her relationship with her retired father, according to the outlet. The new show will take place in the same house where the original was set.
Original cast members Judith Light and Danny Pintauro are also supportive of the sequel, Deadline reported. The fifth member of the core lineup, Katherine Helmond, passed away on February 23, 2019.
Who’s the Boss? was created by Martin Cohan and Blake Hunter. The show ran from 1984 to 1992 on ABC.
