Mad About You just took a major step toward being revived with its original series stars.
Paul Reiser and Helen Hunt have just closed deals with Sony Pictures Television to reprise their Mad About Youroles, EW has learned exclusively. Co-creator Danny Jacobson is also on board to return. The deals follow months of negotiations to try to bring back the 1990s series, which aired on NBC from 1992 to 1999.
The next step is shopping Mad About You to a network. Given the rather spectacular ratings success of ABC’s reboot of Roseanne, as well as the solid performance of NBC’s revived Will & Grace, there are likely to be multiple potential suitors. NBC would be an obvious landing place for the series given its history on the network. But since the comedy wasn’t owned or produced by NBC, it’s not yet clear if it will end up there.
