Add CBS to the growing number of networks who are reviving classic shows.
Not only is Murphy Brown coming back, it’s original creator Diane English and star Candice Bergen are returning as well!
According to Deadline, Bergen will reprise her role as the famous investigative journalist and TV anchor at the FYI network, as Murphy Brown returns to a world of cable news, social media, fake news and a very different political and cultural climate. The first season will consist of 13 episodes.
The show originally aired on CBS for 10 seasons from 1988-1998. It garnered 62 Emmy nominations winning 18 of them. Known for its political jokes, conversations about a revival began during the 2012 election year and restarted when Donald Trump became president.
