NEW YORK (UPI) — Candice Bergen has signed on to reprise her iconic broadcast journalist character in a 13-episode revival of Murphy Brown.
CBS announced Wednesday it is bringing back the Emmy-winning sitcom for the 2018-19 broadcast season, with series creator Diane English once again serving as writer/executive producer.
No other casting has been announced yet.
The show initially ran 1988-98.
“As its 30th anniversary approaches, Murphy Brown returns to a world of cable news, social media, fake news and a very different political and cultural climate,” a CBS news release said.
United Press International is an international news agency whose newswires, photo, news film, and audio services provided news material to thousands of newspapers, magazines and radio and television stations for most of the 20th century.
