Another 1980s sitcom is making a comeback. Sony Pictures Television is developing a Who's the Boss sequel.

Tony Danza and Alyssa Milano who played father and daughter in the original series will reprise their roles.

The show centred on Tony Micelli (Danza), a former major league baseball player who moves with his daughter Samantha (Milano) to Connecticut where he becomes a housekeeper for a divorced ad executive, Angela (Judith Light).

According to Deadline, the show will take place 30 year after the original series. Samantha, now a single mother, lives in the house the original series was set in.

"The new comedy will explore generational differences, as well as opposing world views and parenting styles within the dynamic of a modern family in 2020," reports the publication.

Tony and Alyssa shared the exciting news of the show's return on social media.

The Mistresses actor wrote on Twitter: "#WhosTheBoss is coming back! I've wanted to share this for so long and now I can! We feel the time is right to tell the story of where these amazing characters are today. Can't wait to share their stories with you. So happy."
