It received over forty awards nominations and brought home a Golden Globe and Emmy Award in 1989.
Milano, who starred as Samantha Micelli – one of the leading characters in the show – spoke of a sequel series during an interview with Fox 5.
“We’ve been developing it now for a couple of years,” she said. “The pandemic sort of put everything on hold.”
“We’re hopeful that before I’m in my 70s we’ll be able to. We’re just in developing trying to figure out what the show looks like or would look like, what stage in our lives we would pick up from.”
The 49-year-old actress added that she would be joined in the sequel series by her former co-star and on-screen father Tony Danza, who portrayed Tony Micelli. The former had previously dismissed chances of a reboot series due to the passing of Katherine Helmond (who played Mona Robinson in the show).
However, the sequel series will reportedly resume thirty years after the original show, affectively memorialising Helmond’s character.
Who’s the Boss? followed the Micelli family after Tony, a former major league baseball player, accepts the job as a live-in housekeeper for a divorced New York executive named Angela.
