Alyssa Milano has a clever idea to reboot the classic '80s sitcom "Who's the Boss?" - with her character Samantha as a single mom

Alyssa Milano Has a Super Cool Idea for Bringing Back “Who’s the Boss?” – and We’re So Here for It!

If you grew up in the 80s and 90s like I did, then you probably have some serious nostalgia for the classic sitcom “Who’s the Boss?”. I mean, come on – Tony Danza, Judith Light, and a young Alyssa Milano? TV gold!

Well, guess what? Alyssa Milano has been working on bringing the show back, and she’s got a really clever idea to make it totally relevant for today’s audiences. As someone who’s obsessed with reboots and revivals, I’m super excited about this one.

Let’s rewind a bit – in the original “Who’s the Boss?”, Alyssa played Samantha, the daughter of Tony Micelli (Tony Danza), a former baseball player who becomes a live-in housekeeper for advertising exec Angela Bower (Judith Light). The show was super progressive for its time, flipping traditional gender roles on their head.

Now, for the reboot, Alyssa envisions a series that still has those same groundbreaking elements, but with a modern twist. She sees Tony as the same character we know and love, but everything around him is changing and evolving. The focus would be on Alyssa’s character, Samantha, who is now a single mom living in the same house she grew up in.

Here’s the kicker – Samantha’s dad, Tony, comes to live with her to help take care of her kids, since her job requires her to travel frequently. Can you just imagine the hilarity and heartwarming moments that would come from that dynamic?! I’m getting giggles just thinking about it.

Alyssa and Tony Danza are both set to return for the reboot, and they’re currently looking for a network or streaming service to call home. I have a feeling it won’t be too hard to find one – after all, the original “Who’s the Boss?” was such a beloved show, and there’s definitely a huge audience out there who would be pumped to see these characters again.

One of the things I’m most excited about is how the reboot will explore generational differences and opposing worldviews. I mean, think about it – Samantha is a modern single mom, trying to navigate the challenges of parenting in today’s world. And then you’ve got old-school Tony, who probably has some, uh, traditional ideas about how to raise kids. That could lead to some super funny and insightful moments.

Plus, the show could really dive into the dynamics of a blended, multi-generational family. I remember the original “Who’s the Boss?” doing such a great job of highlighting the evolving relationships between the characters. I have no doubt the reboot will capture that same spirit, just with a fresh, contemporary spin.

And let’s be real – we all need a little more heart and humor in our lives these days. The original “Who’s the Boss?” was known for its ability to tackle serious issues with levity and warmth. I have a feeling the reboot will do the same, providing a much-needed escape from the craziness of the real world.

Alyssa Milano has said that she and the team are really focused on maintaining the spirit of the original show, while also making it relevant for today’s audience. That’s a tricky balance to strike, but if anyone can do it, it’s the talented folks behind this project.

I, for one, can’t wait to see what they come up with. Revisiting these beloved characters and seeing how their lives have evolved is going to be such a treat. And who knows – maybe they’ll even find a way to bring back some of the original cast in guest roles or cameos. That would just be the icing on the cake, if you ask me.

So here’s to Alyssa Milano and her “Who’s the Boss?” reboot dreams! I’m keeping my fingers crossed that they find the perfect home for this project and that it becomes the next big nostalgic hit. Because let’s be real – we could all use a little more Tony Micelli and Samantha Micelli in our lives.
