Possible "The Nanny" revival in the works?


Recommended Posts

I just want to add that I think Steve Lawrence was horrible casting as her never-seen-before father, Morty.

I liked the reunion special she did years ago where the cast came over for lunch where they sat around and had fun.  It was a great informal get together.   I wish more casts did reunion specials like that..tbh

I saw Fran on GMA. She sort of sidestepped it quickly. I didn't feel like it was an outright denial, or that she'd never be up for it. Guess we'll just have to see. Has her "special project" been revealed? (I don't mean her animated movie that she's a voice in). She kept teasing that and that the fans would be happy. Sort of reminds me of when people deny things when already working on it. Again, guess we'll see.

Forget about making it relevant for this day and age.  How on Earth could she be married to Maxwell and probably being grandmother to his and their kids' offspring and STILL be called "The Nanny"?

That's how she became The Granny.

I was watching some of the old episodes again on Freeform (I think this is the first time I've ever watched that channel...) and I'd forgotten that the show was pretty modern at the way they would work in some gay or lesbian characters or themes. (they were just guest stars, but weren't made jokes or overly patronized and the show wasn't endlessly patting itself on the back the way a lot of shows do even now).

 

(I just watched the episode again where Catherine Oxenberg plays Max's lesbian publicist)

 

One of my favorites was where Fran was trying to figure out if a man she was interested in was gay and started talking to Maxwell about men being attracted to other men...and he thought she was talking about him and started talking about a sexual dream he'd had with (I can't remember who it was - George Clooney or something). It plays a lot funnier than it reads, I promise. It was one of my favorite scenes on the show.

Maggie and her husband suddenly get a dream opportunity overseas and can't take their kids, Brighton's wife leaves him and their son, Gracie gets ocked-knay up-yay... they all rely on Max and Fran (who done with California have decided to move back east... to the old townhouse! Fran could plotz every time Brighton's son (his mom was of the chosen people) calls Fran "Yetta"!

I'm with you. (I enjoyed the show as well but felt the last season or two it was time to go; having watched it a lot again now that it's on LOGO I enjoy it still). I think the woman who played Fran's mother did a guest stint a few years back on her TV Land sitcom but that was of course a few years ago now. I'd hope so.

 

I don't necessarily see the appeal of a series again. But I guess many could say that about all of the revivals.

 

I'm not totally against revivals, honestly. I enjoy seeing the casts get back together. But I also understand those sort of exhausted by the idea. We are so used to living in a world where, when a show is gone, it's gone and I think many still live in that mentality. It's hard to come back around.

 

Imagine in the 90s if Three's Company came back? or All in the Family. It's weird to think about. But "back in the day" there was The Brady Brides, The Bradys, Gilligan movies, The Munsters and Addams were rebooted with new and less than stellar casts, Leave it to Beaver reunited for a revival ... we went back to Mayberry a few times. I guess revival series are the new reunion movies. (Oh, Green Acres, I Dream of Jeannie, Dallas until it became it's own revival ...)

 

 

lol

 

And to be fair, Growing Pains, Facts of Life, etc. all had reunion movies. Hell, remember the trash that was Mary & Rhoda (nothing against MTM and Valerie Harper, but lawd I hated it)?

 

Now they'd all be reboots on television or streaming. It's really no different.

 

I'm kind of stuck on this thought too. I'm not against, like a movie, but I don't really care about a series again, as much as I did enjoy it.

 

It seems they took the idea of a reunion movie, like back in the day, and now everything becomes a revival series, lol.

lol

 

Personally I'm shocked it's taken this long. I actually never even thought about The Nanny being revived when I was thinking of reboots.

 

Meanwhile I'm still waiting for my Family Matters and Sister, Sister revivals ... and no one but Paul Reiser is waiting for a Mad About You revival.


the two I really loved...The Brady Girls Get Married and The Brady Brides, which was an adult contemporary show. only lasted one season.

I've been on a bit of a social media/internet break ... lol and not watching the soaps. Sorry for such a late reply. But yeah I liked the Brady Brides. I thought it had some potential.

I've never seen The Brady Girls Get Married. Was it good?  I suppose it's somewhere on YouTube.  That reboot, The Bradys, a one-hour drama with a faux-Marcia was just so bad. I mean, great to see the show resurrected, but the topics covered should've been long arcs covered over a season (Marcia's alcoholism, Bobby paralyzed, etc.) instead of wrapped up in a single episode.
