‘Who’s The Boss’ sequel with Danza, Milano, in the works at Sony

The beloved sitcom, Who’s The Boss will soon be returning to the small screen thanks to Sony Pictures Television.

According to Deadline, Sony Pictures Television is currently working on developing a sequel to the hit ABC family comedy series, Who’s The Boss.

The series, which aired for eight seasons via ABC from 1984 to 1992, focused on Tony Micelli— a Major League Baseball player who moves to Connecticut. Once there, he takes up work as a live-in housekeeper for a divorced advertising executive (Judith Light).

The plan for the proposed sequel is for the series ti pick up 30 years after the original series took place. It’ll focus on Tony’s relationship with his daughter, Samantha— now a single mother herself, who just so happens to be living in the same house the original series took place in.

In a bit of great news for fans of the original, actors Tony Danza and Alyssa Milano are already on board to return to reprise their roles for the upcoming revival.

Danza starred in the original run of the hit Norman Lear sitcom as Tony Micelli, while Milano played his daughter, Samantha.

Currently, it doesn’t sound as though Judith Light or Danny Pintauro (who played Angela Robinson Bower and Jonathan Bower, respectively) are set to return for the sequel series.

Behind the camera, Lear, as well as his producing partner Brent Miller will executive produce through ACT III Productions. In addition, Danza and Milano will also executive produce on the series along with Dan Farah.

As it stands, Sony Pictures’ Who’s The Boss sequel has yet to find a home, but the plan is for the studio to shop the new series around to networks once the project moves further into development.
