We love, love, LOVE Queen Latifah, but now we love her even more. The woman is a powerhouse–singer, rapper, songwriter, actress, producer–and the list goes on and on.
We are happy to tell you that Queen Latifah has announced a Living Single reboot is in the works!
Get ready to return to a ’90s kind of world. Queen Latifah revealed that she’s working on a Living Single reboot on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen. Excuse us while we put the fierce opening theme song on repeat all day long.
When one caller asked if guest Queen Latifah ever thought there could be a revival of the beloved ’90s sitcom, she replied, “Funny you should ask. We’re actually working on it,” adding, “It’s not there yet, but hopefully we can get it happening.”
Queen Latifah went on to say that “the goal” would be to get all of the original cast members to sign on to the reboot. So here’s hoping that Kim Fields, Kim Coles, Erika Alexander, John Henton, and T.C. Carson are as jazzed about the idea as Queen Latifah seems to be.
She also said that she plans on producing this Living Single reboot, but when it comes to when and where it will air, Queen Latifah said, “We’re still figuring all that out.”
Living Single ran for five seasons on FOX from 1993 to 1998. The series debuted just one year prior to another beloved comedy about six pals living in New York: Friends. “We knew we had already been doing that,” Queen Latifah told Andy Cohen when asked if she thought Friends was similar to Living Single when it premiered. “It was one of those things where there was a guy called Warren Littlefield, who used to run NBC. When all the new shows came out, they asked him, ‘If there’s any show you could have, which would it be?’ And he said, ‘Living Single.’ Then he created Friends. But Friends was so good, so it wasn’t like we hated on it or anything.”
As you can see the Living Single reboot is in the very early stages of development. Still, just knowing it is in the works makes us super happy! Let’s hope everyone from the original cast will sign on!
