    • I was hoping that if it got off the ground it would be the daughters of the original sisters so they could use the originals in guest appearances. It is one of my favourite shows too

  1. I wonder when Steve Austin and the Six Million Dollar Man will make a return as well, though obviously six million wont buy much nowadays which could mean a re-title of the show, as much as these 70’s -80’s favourites will have a curiosity factor what has happened to creative script writing nowadays, original stories are losing out to formulaic and repetitive themes designed for long production runs of 4 seasons or more which turns them into a big budget soap eventually. Netflix for all their inconsistencies have shown that audiences want new original shows and are willing to pay for it.

    • I can see how a revival of Murphy brown would work so many comment about Trump. Charmed loved the original but no…. I did here the rumour about the Nanny but I think the stars have already said no
