We are one step closer to having ‘Mad About You’ back on TV with the original stars! According to Entertainment Weekly, Helen Hunt and Paul Reiser have signed deals with Sony Pictures Television to reprise their roles from the popular sitcom, which ran for seven season from 1992-1999. Series’ co-creator Danny Jacobson has also signed on to return after “months of negotiations.”
In the past, when discussing the possibility of a reboot or revival, Paul Reiser has expressed concern. “One of the things we did deliberately in the finale was that we jumped ahead in the future. We saw where they went,” Reiser told Variety. “Part of why we did that was to avoid the temptation of going back… As for her part, Helen Hunt says It would be fun to work on something that’s really about love.” she also noted the show will look rather different given the passage of time. She’s now 54, and Paul Reiser is 62. “We’ll be older though,” she added. “I hope people are prepared for that. I’m not prepared for it!”
Of course, one thing learned from both the ‘Will & Grace’ and ‘Roseanne’ reboot’s is that season finale’s can be easily ignored and events changed, and audiences are very forgiving!
