It has been nearly 30 years since Murphy Brown first entered our lives and what a refreshing tonic she was. A sassy, gritty news anchor that frequently referenced the pop culture at the time, Murphy Brown was a huge hit and so CBS have decided that a revival is in order.
We will see how Murphy Brown (Candice Bergen) tackles the current state of cable news, clickbait, and a very different political and cultural climate. The original cast members of Faith Ford, Joe Regalbuto and Grant Shaud will also reprise their roles as Corky Sherwood, Frank Fontana and Miles Silverberg, respectively. In addition, actor Jake McDorman will go head-to-head with star Candice Bergen as her son Avery, a millennial journalist who followed in his mother's headline-making footsteps. However, the traits they have in common might be the same things that cause friction between the two!
