Fran Drescher has all but confirmed that a reboot of The Nanny is in the works, telling ET: “We’re talking about it. Peter [Marc Jacob, co-creator] and I are talking about it. We’re working on a very big project.
“It’s going to be very exciting for the fans, but I’m not at liberty to announce it yet. But it’s gonna be big.”
While she told ET, “I mean, I’m waiting to get the call”, referring to the network greenlighting the reboot, she explains that, twenty years after the finale, the show can’t simply slot back in without major changes.
“She would’ve maybe gotten involved in more things Fran Drencher is involved with,” she explains
“All kinds of things from environmental issues, to health, to civil liberties, that’s what I think Fran would be doing now — opening her big Queens mouth for the greater good.
“The thing is our show would be the same characters 20 years later. We can’t just pick up where we left off.
“But in a way, that could be really good because the show can have a whole fresh bend to it.”
