Tony Danza and Judith Light have dashed our dreams of a “Who’s The Boss?” reboot.
Alyssa Milano had everyone’s hopes up a few years back when she said she would “100 per cent” be ready if the script were right. “I think [my character Samantha] would have [her own] kids and Tony would be a grandfather,” Milano said.
But Danza has now said it will never happen in an interview with “Good Day New York”.
“I’ve never been a fan of reboots,” he told Rosanna Scotto. “We can’t reboot [‘Who’s The Boss?’] because we have no Katherine Helmond.” He does wish the show would live on in syndication, adding “it would be good for kids.”
Former co-star Judith Light shared a similar perspective. Light also turned down a “Who’s The Boss?” reboot on “Watch What Happens Live!” with Andy Cohen: “I’d have to say that I do agree with [Danza].
“She [Helmond] was so much the fulcrum of the show and without her, it’s really not the same. I think a lot of people feel that way. I love that everyone wants it to come back but I think it’d be so obvious that so much is missing.”
During the chat Danza also addressed Milano’s activism in the Me Too movement, noting that she has been an activist for a long time.
“She is one of those people who feels a responsibility” to “do something good,” the “Taxi” alum said. “You may not agree with her but her heart is in the right place.”
