Breaking News We Like: Murphy Brown Is Back!

Next Tribe Murphy Brown is back, Candice Bergen returns in the role of the feisty TV journalist


Keep your “It” and “Jumanji” remakes.The reboot we are most psyched about is on the small screen – CBS just announced that the fabulous Candice Bergen, 71, will return as the funny, feisty broadcast journalist, Murphy Brown, working in a male-dominated world.

The show “Murphy Brown,” which originally aired from 1988 to 1998, endeared Bergen to a generation of viewers as she wrestled with then-modern life. Remember the kerfuffle caused by her decision to become a single mom, which was criticized by VP Dan Quayle? And how Murphy stood her ground—and dealt with all kinds of modern-day tough topics? We bet the series creator Diane English, who’s helming this production, will keep it real again. The series earned 62 Emmy nominations back in the day, reflecting its fearlessness and high quality.

“Murphy” will be back in the 2018-2019 season, and it’s not the only update out there. We’re waiting for someone to notice that “Friends” reruns are insanely popular online. What would midlife be like for Ross and Rachel? Guess we’ll have to wait and see if that comes around again, too.
