Who’s the Boss sequel series starring Tony Danza & Alyssa Milano set up at Amazon Freevee



Just when you thought we were safe from revivals of old TV shows. Deadline has reported that the long-gestating Who’s the Boss sequel series has found a home at Amazon Freevee.

The sequel to the classic sitcom will find Tony Danza and Alyssa Milano reprising their roles as Tony and Samantha Micelli. The Who’s the Boss sequel will “focus on former Major League Baseball player/retired housekeeper Tony Micelli (Danza) and his relationship with his daughter Samantha (Milano). She is now a single mother, living in the family house.” The series will explore “generational differences, as well as opposing world views and parenting styles within the dynamic of a modern family in 2022.” The project was first announced close to two years ago. Norman Lear will executive produce the new series alongside Mike Royce (who will also write) and Brigitte Muñoz-Liebowitz. Royce is best known as the co-creator of the One Day at a Time reboot. Muñoz-Liebowitz also worked on One Day at a Time as a co-executive producer and currently serves as the showrunner/executive producer for Gordita Chronicles at HBO Max.

If you’re wondering what Amazon Freevee is, you’re not alone. The free, ad-supported streaming service launched just three years ago as IMDb Freedive. It was rebranded six months later as IMDb TV, before being rebranded yet again as Amazon Freevee just a couple of months ago.

The original Who’s the Boss series ran for eight seasons and 196 episodes from 1984-92. It was one of the more popular sitcoms of the time, drawing more than 30 million viewers, and was nominated for more than 40 awards, including 10 Emmy Awards and 5 Golden Globe Awards. As someone who has never seen Who’s the Boss, not even a single episode, I can’t really comment on the demand for a sequel series. So I’ll leave that up to you. Are you itching to catch up with Tony and Samantha?
