Paul Reiser and Helen Hunt are officially on board the Mad About You revival
Danny Jacobson, who co-created the hit NBC sitcom with Reiser, will also be part of the revival. Sony Pictures Television signed Hunt, Reiser and Jacobson after months of negotiation. As James Hibberd reports, "the next step is shopping Mad About You to a network. Given the rather spectacular ratings success of ABC’s reboot of Roseanne, as well as the solid performance of NBC’s revived Will & Grace, there are likely to be multiple potential suitors. NBC would be an obvious landing place for the series given its history on the network. But since the comedy wasn’t owned or produced by NBC, it’s not yet clear if it will end up there."

Helen Hunt on a Mad About You revival: "Depending on some pieces falling into place, it could happen"
Hunt says Paul Reiser was at her house earlier this week discussing the potential revival. "(He was) at my kitchen table yesterday and, after a lot of conversations between us about how we were very proud of the work we did, and we left it with a lot of care, (we agreed) we just didn't want to come in and wreck it," Hunt said Tuesday. "That was our number one goal and remains our number one goal."

Paul Reiser on a Mad About You revival: "We don’t know that it’s coming back”
“Somebody jumped the gun with the Mad About You,” Reiser said on the SAG Awards red carpet of the report of a revival that came out the day after Christmas. “Somebody went a little crazy. Helen Hunt and I were talking about it and somebody said, 'Oh look, they're talking, I guess they’re doing a re-boot.'” He added: “We’re thinking about it. We ended it very well and we were proud of how we ended it, and we wrapped it up nicely, so if you open up that box again, you want to make sure you do it well. We’ll let you know as soon as we decide.”

A Mad About You revival? Paul Reiser says he’s “talked about” it with Helen Hunt
“If we can find the story to tell, and anybody’s interested, I’d be open to it,” says Reiser, who’s currently appearing on Stranger Things. Reiser tells People Magazine: “For years, I would’ve said, ‘Absolutely no. We never would do it,’ because I was very proud of how we ended it really well. We even told the future a little bit, so our thinking at the time was, ‘Let’s make sure we never get tempted to come back. Let’s tell them what happens.’”
