Television networks have been eager to revamp some of the most beloved sitcoms lately. Some of them are actually good (likeĀ One Day At A Time), some of them are hit-and-missĀ (likeĀ Gilmore Girls), and some of them are getting renewed for a second seasonā€¦for some reasonĀ (likeĀ Fuller House).

Now, Queen Latifah has revealed that a reboot of none other thanĀ Living Single,Ā one of the best and most popular black sitcoms of the '90s,Ā is in the works.

Latifah made the news while appearingĀ Andy Cohen'sĀ Watch What Happens LiveĀ on Thursday night.Ā ā€œItā€™s not there yet, but hopefully we can get it happening,ā€ Latifah told Cohen.

The revival ofĀ Living SingleĀ would include the original cast of Kim Coles, Erika Alexander, T.C. Carson, Mel Jackson, John Henton, and Kim Fields, according to Latifah.

It's a totallyĀ deserved reboot, but it got me thinking: Why can't I find the original Living Single anywhere? There's actually a decidedĀ lackĀ of beloved black sitcoms on streaming services in generalā€”and Living Single is part of that trend.

Latifah also brought up a topic she has mentioned before: the obvious similarities between Living SingleĀ andĀ Friends.Ā ā€œThere was a guy called Warren Littlefield, who used to run NBC, and they asked him, ā€˜When all the new shows came out, if there was any show you could have, which one would it be?ā€™ And he said Living SingleĀ ā€¦ And then he created Friends,ā€ sheĀ said.
