The '90s aren't done coming back to your TV. According to The Hollywood Reporter, NBC's long-running hit, Mad About You, is the latest '90s sitcom being eyed for a revival.

The series, which ran for seven seasons from 1992 until 1999, starred Helen Hunt and Paul Reiser, both of whom are reportedly on board to return for the revival. The proposed eighth season of the series would take place in modern day and follow Jamie and Paul (Hunt and Reiser's characters, respectively) as they navigate life following their now-17-year-old daughter Mabel's college acceptance.

Reiser discussed the possibility of a revival in October. "If we can find the story to tell, and anybody's interested, I'd be open to it," he told People.

The revival is not a done deal, however. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the series doesn't have a network attached and no official deals are in place. Given the success of other recent television revivals, like Will & Grace and Gilmore Girls, it's very possible a Mad About You revival will find a home on TV or streaming.
