Big news! CBS has given a 13-episode, series production commitment to a current-day revival of Murphy Brown—and Candice Bergen is on board to reprise her role.

Murphy Brown, who Bergen originally played from 1988-1998, was named by TV Guide as one of the "25 Greatest TV Characters Of All Time."

Also back for the revival are Faith Ford (Corky Sherwood), Joe Regalbuto (Frank Fontana) and Grant Shaud (Miles Silverberg), who will each reprise their original characters.

As we inch toward the series' 30th anniversary, the revival will offer fans a look at how Brown tackles the current state of cable news, social media, fake news, and a VERY different political and cultural climate.

Also back for a second go-around is original series creator Diane English, who will serve as Writer and Executive Producer of the multi-camera comedy. Bergen will also be an Executive Producer.

During the series' original decade-long run on CBS, Murphy Brown garnered 62 Emmy nominations (with 18 wins), 15 Golden Globe nominations (with three wins), three Screen Actors Guild awards, and much, much more.

Bergen personally earned five Emmy Awards for her portrayal of the ambitious investigative journalist and news anchor of FYI, a fictional TV magazine show.
