Mad About You will officially return in 2019 and contains many of the original cast members, including the stars Helen Hunt and Paul Reiser. How exciting! The show was originally on NBC from 1992-1999. The show focuses on Paul Buchman and Jamie Stemple Buchman, newlyweds who deal with daily life.
Paul and Helen released a joint press release in which they shared their excitement about returning to television. According to Simplemost, the couple wrote: “We’re so excited to finally do this. We promise you the same funny and heart-warming show – as soon as we remember what’s funny about being older. It’s going to be great!”
What Will The Reboot Be About?
The original Mad About You focused on their brand new life and ultimately on life with their daughter, Mabel. The new generation series will focus on their lives as empty nesters. Mabel grew up completely in this new show and only goes further. The show will focus on how the Buchmans deal with being a married couple while their identity shifts.
Helen and Paul have remained friends since the show went up in 1999. Helen even said that they make sure they meet at least once a month for lunch. For years they hoped to do a revolution show. After seeing how successful the new Will and Grace reboot was, they knew they had to pursue a Mad About You reboot.
Helen And Paul Shared Their Excitement On Twitter
Helen shared her excitement about restarting on Twitter, sharing an old photo of Mad About You with the caption: “LET’S GO!” Paul responded quickly by saying, “Oh, let’s go, honey!” Not a word about when or where exactly the sitcom will be broadcast, but stay informed for updates. It will probably be broadcast by the end of 2019.
The original Mad About You received 34 Emmy nominations and 12 victories. It also earned 13 Golden Globe nominations and three wins. The show also won a Peabody Award. Are you enthusiastic about the restart of Mad About You? Will you watch when it is broadcast?
