The famous ABC vintage sitcom Who’s The Boss? Is all set for a sequel. Tony Danza and Alyssa Milano are set to reprise their father-daughter roles for a sequel that’s in the works at Sony Pictures Television, the studio said Tuesday.
The original series which ran from 1984 to 1992 proved to be a massive hit for ABC. Who’s The Boss? was a total of 196 episodes and aired over its eight seasons. Martin Cohan and Blake Hunter created it.
According to reports in Sony, the modern-day reboot revolves around Danza’s Tony Micelli, a former ballplayer and now retired housekeeper, and Milano’s Samantha. The daughter lives in the home where the original series was set and is a single mother.
Veteran producer Norman Lear, part of the remake of his original series “One Day at a Time,” is among the “Who’s the Boss?” producers, as are Danza and Milano.
Sony, in a statement, said that “The new comedy will explore generational differences, as well as opposing world views and parenting styles within the dynamic of a modern family in 2020.”
Sony left the door open for the involvement of Judith Light, whose character Angela sparred with Tony as his employer and later romantic interest, and Danny Pintauro, who played her son, Jonathan.
Katherine Helmond, who was Emmy-nominated and won a Golden Globe for her role as Angela’s mother, Mona, died in February 2019 at age 89. Fans are wondering if they will get to hear the original show’s theme song, Brand New Life again or not?
