Tony Danza and Alyssa Milano are set to reprise their father-daughter roles for a sequel that's in the works at Sony Pictures Television, the studio said Tuesday.

Judith Light, who played divorced ad executive Angela Bower in the original, and Danny Pintauro, who played her son Jonathan, may also join the sequel.

Set to take place 30 years after the events of the original series, the sequel will center around former Major League Baseball player/retired housekeeper Tony Micelli and his relationship with his daughter Samantha Micelli. A release date has not been revealed yet.

"Who's the Boss?" ran for eight seasons and 196 episodes from 1984 until 1992. The plot of Who's The Boss is going to throw the entire spotlight on the life of Tony as well as Samantha, who is now a mother without a husband while living in a house in which the original series was set in. Unfortunately, Katherine Helmond, the veteran actress who played Angela Bower's mother Mona - and who undoubtedly, in my opinion, the best character on the show - passed away early past year aged 89.

Milano, who broke out in the role of Tony's spunky daughter Samantha and became a bona fide child star in the process, tweeted: "We feel the time is right to tell the story of where these wonderful characters are today". Danza and Milano have also signed on as executive producers along with Dan Farah of Farah Films.

Well, well, well, here we have a great piece of news for all the people who are in love with the series called Who's The Boss, which used to air back in the 80s.

Milano and Danza both took to social media to share the news.

The classic comedy Who's the Boss? looks like it will be the latest television reboot. Recent examples include Full House (now Fuller House), Boy Meets World (now Girl Meets World), Murphy Brown, Will & Grace, One Day at a Time, Roseanne, and more.
