It appears we are about to get another chance to find out who the boss really is.
That’s right, per Deadline, the hit 1980s sitcom Who’s the Boss? is getting a sequel series and will be carried by Amazon’s Freevee streaming service. The original series ran from 1984-92 and starred the likes of Tony Danza and Alyssa Milano.
Danza himself even reposted Deadline’s report on Instagram. Excited about this,” Danza wrote as his caption.
So yeah, it makes you think it’s really happening.
Milano also shared the news on her own Instagram page, and like Danza, is expected to return for the sequel.
“Set 30 years after the events of the original series, the sequel will focus on former Major League Baseball player/retired housekeeper Tony Micelli (Danza) and his relationship with his daughter Samantha (Milano),” Deadline reported. “She is now a single mother, living in the family house.”
As of now, the only things that seem unclear is if original series co-stars Judith Light and Danny Pintauro will return for the sequel. Katherine Helmond, who played the underrated role of Light’s mother, died in 2019.
The original Who’s the Boss? drew more than 30 million viewers at its peak. “It was nominated for 10 Emmy Awards and became a syndication staple,” Deadline noted.
