Revivals are all the rage, especially in regards to 1990s comedy series, so talk of a continuation of iconic sitcom “The Nanny” wouldn’t be all that surprising.
In fact series co-creator and star Fran Drescher, speaking with Entertainment Tonight about the show’s continuing popularity twenty-five years after it first aired, says it has gone beyond mere fan wish fulfilment and Drescher is open to it:
“We’re talking about it. Peter [Marc Jacobson] and I are talking about it. The thing is our show would be the same characters 20 years later. We can’t just pick up where we left off. But in a way, that could be really good because the show can have a whole fresh bend to it… I’m waiting to get the call [from the network].”
Drescher and her ex-husband created the CBS sitcom which ran from 1993-99 and followed the Queens-born nanny to three children of millionaire British Broadway producer Maxwell Sheffield. The pair are also working on a “very big project” right now but she can’t announce it as yet.
