In yet more reboot news, NBC is bringing back another popular show. TV Line reports Sony is working on a revival of Mad About You, with Paul Reiser and Helen Hunt in talks to reprise their lead roles. 

The NBC sitcom, which ran from 1992 to 1999, followed a documentary filmmaker and a public relations specialist in New York City.

The series revival would reportedly focus on married couple Paul and Jamie Buchman in present day life, suffering from a case of empty nest syndrome as their 17-year-old daughter Mabel goes to college.

Hunt won an Emmy for outstanding lead actress in a comedy four years in a row during her stint on the show. 

Reiser, who recently starred in season two of Stranger Things, hinted at a revival in an interview with People in October. 

"If we can find the story to tell, and anybody's interested, I'd be open to it," he said. "For years, I would've said, 'Absolutely no. We never would do it,' because I was very proud of how we ended it really well. We even told the future a little bit, so our thinking at the time was, 'Let's make sure we never get tempted to come back. Let's tell them what happens.'" 

Earlier this month it emerged that the network is also planning to bring back another beloved show: The Office
