The band is getting back together.
CBS has announced that Candice Bergen’s former castmates — Faith Ford (Corky Sherwood), Joe Regalbuto (Frank Fontana), and Grant Shaud (Miles Silverberg) — will return for the reprisal of Murphy Brown.
In January, CBS announced it has given a 13-episode, series production commitment to a revival of the Diane English comedy that will bring back Bergen as an investigative journalist. The network is promising that the series, planned for the 2018-19 season, will “return to a world of cable news, social media, fake news, and a very different political and cultural climate.”
English will return as writer/executive producer for the multi-camera sitcom for Warner Bros. TV. Bergen will also be an executive producer.
The original series aired for 10 years from 1988 to 1998.
