Murphy Brown revival starring Candice Bergen in the works

US TV network CBS announced today that the landmark feminist sitcom Murphy Brown would be returning for the 2018-2019 season.

Bergen will reprise her role as the famous investigative journalist and TV anchor at the FYI network, as Murphy Brown returns to a world of cable news, social media, fake news and a very different political and cultural climate.

Original creator Diane English will write and executive produce through her Bend in the Road Productions banner.

The Warner Bros. produced series has gotten a straight to series order and will include Bergen reprising her role, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

"Murphy Brown" and Murphy Brown are coming back to TV.

Bergen starred as Murphy Brown for the show's entire original run, which started in 1988 and ended a decade later in 1998. There's no word yet on whether any other OG stars will return alongside Bergen for the revival. The iconic show received 18 Emmy wins - including five wins for Bergen alone - as well as three Golden Globes and three Screen Actors Guild awards. The new season will be 13-episodes long, shot in the traditional multi-cam format, and will take place in the current day.

TV Guide named Murphy Brown one of the "25 Greatest TV Characters of All Time" in 2010. As overall TV consumption continues to fragment and it remains hard to count viewers on nontraditional platforms, broadcasters are becoming increasingly desperate to find built-in audiences through revivals of former hits. The series was also nominated for 15 Golden Globes and won three.
