Fran Drescher Teases ‘The Nanny’ Revival!

Full disclosure, I am a ridiculously huge fan of The Nanny.  Like can recite it.  So I am thrilled to hear there is talk of getting the kids back together.

The sitcom celebrates its 25th anniversary this year and Fran Drescher is very aware of the comedy’s popularity. “It’s unreal,” she told Entertainment Tonight in an interview. The conversation led to whether a revival of The Nanny is on the table.

“We’re talking about it,” she admitted. “Peter [Marc Jacobson] and I are talking about it.”

Drescher and ex-husband Jacobson created the CBS sitcom, which ran for six seasons from 1993-99. The show was based loosely on her life growing up in Queens. The story followed Drescher’s Fran Fine, a nanny — with a very distinct laugh — to three children of millionaire British Broadway producer Maxwell Sheffield.
