Just a few months back, it was confirmed the 1990s TV series Mad About You is getting a revival series, starring original cast members Paul Reiser and Helen Hunt. You can look for the return of your favorite apartment-dwelling couple on November 20, with the first six episodes being released all at once via Spectrum Originals. The second six episodes will be available on December 13.
Now that we know the dates, what can we expect in the follow-up series? The sitcom will pick up 20 years later, with married couple Paul and Jamie Buchman living as empty-nesters in NYC, navigating couplehood, parenting and middle-aging.
The recently released (September 5) trailer fills in some of the blanks. It doesn’t include footage just yet, but it does have stills of the Buchmans hailing a taxi, shopping in a food market, strolling in a park… pretty much basic city life:
It’s nice to see these two are still together, still best friends and still holding hands as seen in the park photo. We can’t wait to see what else they’re still doing and what’s new with them. It’s been 20 years, we expect there are some changes.
Reiser and Hunt released a joint statement when the announcement was first made, expressing their delight, saying, “We are so excited to finally be doing this and thrilled to have Peter Tolan as our fearless captain. We promise you the same funny and heartwarming show — as soon as we can remember what’s funny about being older. It’s going to be great!”
Rescue Me creator Tolan, who is mentioned above, will be acting as showrunner for the next installment of Mad About You.
This is definitely going on our watch list — what about you!?Read More
