Alyssa Milano shares the latest update about the upcoming Who’s the Boss sequel. Aside from revealing the new iteration’s plot details, she also tells her hopes about it.
The original Who’s the Boss starred Tony Danza and Judith Light as Tony and Angela, respectively, and ran for eight seasons, from 1984 to 1992. It became one of ABC’s most famous TV series, and now the Who’s the Boss is in development.
Who’s the Boss Sequel Plot Details
Milano, who played Tony’s daughter Samantha in the original series, revealed that the Who’s the Boss sequel had been developing for years.
In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, the 49-year-old shared that the series’ follow-up would feature Tony and Samantha’s relationship.
Tony has now retired and is helping his daughter to raise her kids. Though she didn’t reveal if their characters would live in the same house, she disclosed that they would use the same home as the original sitcom.
“It would be Tony coming to take care of my children because I get a job that makes me travel a lot, so it's that whole dynamic,” she said. “But also, the generational difference between raising a child now versus then, which is always the conflict that I have with my parents in real life about gentle parenting. So, I'm really looking forward to that aspect of it.”
Alyssa Milano’s Hopes for Who’s the Boss Sequel
Who’s the Boss sequel will have a new home on Amazon’s Freevee, and Milano hopes it will be as “progressive” as the original.
She said the original series was quite progressive for its time, featuring the story of a single mom businesswoman with a “sexually voracious mother,” played by the late Katherine Helmond, who hired a man to be her housekeeper.
Hence, she hopes the new series will stay true to the “progressive thing that we had in the ‘80s while tapping into today’s issues.”
Moreover, Milano revealed she had already seen one script of the revival and found it “really funny.”
However, it remains to be seen if Light will join the show to reprise her role as Angela, though she seems confident about it.
“I’m sure she will [return],” she told ET.
“I was very skeptical about this,” she continued. “And then I spoke to Tony… and I got kind of excited.”
So, what’s the latest progress of the sequel today?
“We submitted the script to Freevee before Thanksgiving, and they are internally talking this week about it,” she stated. “So, hopefully, we will hear soon.”
