(Newser) Mad About You is coming back: A reboot of the popular '90s sitcom has been picked up. Spectrum Originals, part of Charter Communications, will carry the show that reunites Paul Reiser and Helen Hunt in a limited run later this year, Fox News reports. The stars agreed to return last year, but producers hadn't landed a deal until now. "We promise you the same funny and heartwarming show—as soon as we can remember what's funny about being older," Hunt and Reiser said in a statement. In the reboot, Paul and Jamie Buchman are empty-nesters. Mad About You follows in the footsteps of other popular programs of the era, such as Will and Grace, Full House, and Roseanne, in returning to TV in updated versions. (Roseanne Barr says this is why her reboot was canceled.)
