A new reboot of the famous series is in the works! After the great announcement that has encouraged the fans of “Friends”, it is the turn of the fans of the series “Madame est served” to know some excellent news: a sequel will soon see the light! Inaugurated in 1984, Madame est servie told the story of Tony Micelli (Tony Danza), a former baseball player of Italian origin, who in order to support himself and his daughter Samantha, decides to accept the place of housekeeper from Angela Bower ( Judith Light), director of an advertising agency. Aired on M6 for years, the series had stopped in 1992 in the United States and had notably revealed actress Alyssa Milano … who was only 12 when filming began!
According to the TVLine site, the actress, who is now 47 years old, agreed to resume the service, 30 years after the end of the series. This sequel will focus on Samantha, now a single mother, who still lives in the house where she lived as a teenager. A new plot that, according to the actress, “will explore the differences between generations, but also the ways of seeing the world and the different educational methods through the dynamics of a modern family in 2020.”
Alyssa Milano and Tony Danza the only survivors of the original casting
Because yes, Alyssa Milano confirmed the happy news on her Twitter account, this Tuesday, August 4, 2020: “I am SO EXCITED: Madame is served, come back !!! I wanted to share this news for so long and now I can!” I feel like today is a good time to tell the stories of these fabulous characters. I am dying to share their stories with you. I’m so happy. “She wrote.
If Alyssa Milano and Tony Danza, who played her on-screen father, have confirmed their presence, the other former members of the series will sadly not be there. Judith Light, who has other professional commitments, has declined the invitation to reprise her role as Angela Bower. Danny Pintauro, who later played her son Jonathan on screen, was not announced in the cast and Katherine Helmond, who played Angela’s mother on the show, died in 2019 from Alzheimer’s disease.
