Twenty years after it ended is seven-year run on NBC, “Mad About You” is getting a reboot. Paul Reiser and Helen Hunt will reprise their roles in the sitcom in a limited series for Sony Pictures Television that will launch on Charter Communications’ Spectrum Originals in late 2019. Peter Tolan (“Rescue Me”) will be the showrunner.

The series will be set in the present day and focus on Paul and Jamie Buchman and their daughter, Mabel. Hunt will direct the reboot’s first episode.

“We are so excited to finally be doing this and thrilled to have Peter Tolan as our fearless captain,” Reiser and Hunt said in a joint statement. “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!”

“Two decades ago, fans fell in love with this show, and this time will be no different as Paul, Helen and Peter explore modern marriage through the eyes of two people who have just become empty-nesters,” Katherine Pope, Head of Content at Spectrum Originals said. “We can’t wait for everyone to fall in love with the Buchmans all over again.”

Reiser is also playing composer Cy Feuer in the new FX limited series “Fosse/Verdon,” premiering April 9.
