A ‘Mad About You’ Revival Is Reportedly in the Works

Mad About You might be the next sitcom to return to television. According to TVLine, Sony has reportedly begun “informal talks” with Paul Reiser and Helen Hunt to return for a limited-run revival of the series, which originally ran on NBC for seven seasons from 1992-1999. Sony did not comment on the report, but a source told TVLine that the new batch of episodes would follow Reiser and Hunt’s characters “grappling with empty-nest syndrome in the wake of now-17-year-old daughter Mabel’s admission to college.” Back in October, Reiser told People he’d “be open to” the idea of bringing the show back in some form: “For years, I would’ve said, ‘Absolutely no. We never would do it,’ because I was very proud of how we ended it really well,” he said. “Now, because everybody’s talking about it, I started to think, ‘Maybe if there’s a story we could come up with … To me, it’s interesting when I see my kids are growing and leaving the house. It’s like, ‘Oh.’ It’s like that moment when you get married. It’s like we’re in a new world that we don’t know the rules of.”
