Shoulder pads better come back soon, because Murphy Brown is. CBS announced today that it’s reviving the classic Candice Bergen comedy about journalist and news anchor Murphy Brown with a 13-episode season set to air in the 2018–2019 season. Bergen will still star as Murphy and creator Diane English will serve as a writer-executive producer, as the show “returns to a world of cable news, social media, fake news and a very different political and cultural climate.” To commemorate the occasion, Mike Pence will be rebooted as Dan Quayle.
