When have modern sitcom reboots/ reunions ever failed? That question isn't rhetorical; I'm actually curious. Because to my recollection, I can't think of a single time, in recent memory, where a sitcom reunion or reboot went completely bust. Barring Roseanne Barr's removal from The Conners, the revival series has gone off without a hitch and is still chugging along. And even though the most recent Saved by the Bell reboot hit the skids, the series garnered a host of critical approval. Again, I'm talking about going completely bust here, folks, and being a critical darling doesn't fit the aforementioned criteria. It seems like modern sitcom reboots are an automatic license to print money and attract eyeballs.
Not one to miss a potential payday, Amazon's Freevee has greenlit a Who's the Boss? revival series with Tony Danza and Alyssa Milano reprising their roles. Television legend Norman Lear is also attached as the series executive producer.
The Who's the Boss? sequel series has found a home. The project, reuniting original stars Tony Danza and Alyssa Milano and executive produced by Norman Lear, has landed at Amazon Freevee for development.
The follow-up is being written/executive produced by One Day at a Time co-creator/exec producer/co-showrunner Mike Royce and co-executive producer Brigitte Muñoz-Liebowitz. Sony Pictures Television, which owns the rights to the original series and has been working on the sequel for the past two years, is the studio.
