Queen Latifah is giving us total ’90s nostalgia.
On Thursday, Jan. 12, the former talk-show host stopped by “Watch What Happens Live” where she revealed that she’s producing a reboot of her hit ’90s sitcom, “Living Single.” That’s right ladies and gents, Khadijah, Synclaire, Max, Regine and more are making their way back to a small screen near you.
“Funny you should ask — we’re actually working on it,” Latifah told host Andy Cohen, after a caller asked about a possible reboot of the series, which followed the colorful personal and professional lives of a group of single male and female roommates (and friends) in 1990s Brooklyn, New York. “It’s not there yet, but hopefully we can get it happening.”
While we haven’t seen much from the series stars since the show, the 46-year-old actress, who also produced the original series, went on to reveal that “the goal” for the remake would be to reunite the original cast members Kim Coles, Erika Alexander, T.C. Carson, John Henton, Mel Jackson and Kim Fields.
Meanwhile, Henton, who played Overton on the show, recently told “ET” that he’d love to be part of the new series. “I am hopeful this will happen,” he said. “I would love to get the band back together. A long-awaited family reunion.”
Created by Yvette Lee Bowser, the Fox series ran for five seasons, from 1993 to 1998. Just one year prior, another beloved comedy about six pals living in New York: “Friends,” also made its debut. “We knew we had already been doing that,” Latifah told Cohen when asked if she thought “Friends” was similar to “Living Single” when it arrived on the scene.
“It was one of those things where there was a guy called Warren Littlefield, who used to run NBC. When all the new shows came out, they asked him, ‘If there’s any show you could have, which would it be?’ And he said, ‘Living Single.’ Then he created ‘Friends.’ But ‘Friends’ was so good, so it wasn’t like we hated on it or anything.”
While it’s unclear whether the show will return to Fox or Netflix like many recent reboots — like “Fuller House,” one thing’s for sure, we cannot wait!
