A ‘Mad About You’ Revival Is Reportedly in the Works

mad-about-youMad About You might be the next sitcom to return to television. According to TVLine, Sony has reportedly begun “informal talks” with Paul Reiser and Helen Hunt to return for a limited-run revival of the series, which originally ran on NBC for seven seasons from 1992-1999. Sony did not comment on the report, but a source told TVLine that the new batch of episodes would follow Reiser and Hunt’s characters “grappling with empty-nest syndrome in the wake of now-17-year-old daughter Mabel’s admission to college.” Back in October, Reiser told People he’d “be open to” the idea of bringing the show back in some form: “For years, I would’ve said, ‘Absolutely no. We never would do it,’ because I was very proud of how we ended it really well,” he said. “Now, because everybody’s talking about it, I started to think, ‘Maybe if there’s a story we could come up with … To me, it’s interesting when I see my kids are growing and leaving the house. It’s like, ‘Oh.’ It’s like that moment when you get married. It’s like we’re in a new world that we don’t know the rules of.”
