What's old is new again, and 20 years after its finale aired on CBS, Murphy Brown is coming back to the network.

Deadline reports that CBS has ordered 13 episodes of a Murphy Brown revival, with star Candice Bergen and creator Diane English both on board to return. The series aired from 1988 to 1998, focusing on investigative journalist and TV anchor Brown, and Bergen won five Emmys for the role. Other original cast members are currently in talks to join Bergen on the show, Deadline reports.

Murphy Brown is the latest '90s sitcom to return to television screens — Will & Grace came back to NBC last fall, and a Roseanne revival will start airing on ABC in March.
