Oh Mr Sheffield.

Everyone remain calm, but The Nanny could be gracing our screens once more.

In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Fran Drescher revealed she was in talks with ex-husband and co-creator Peter Marc Jacobson.

“We’re talking about it. Peter and I are talking about it,” Fran said.

“We’re working on a very big project. It’s going to be very exciting for the fans, but I’m not at liberty to announce it yet. But it’s gonna be big.”

2018 marks 25 years since The Nanny first debuted on TV. Speaking about where the characters would be now, Fran said:

“The thing is our show would be the same characters 20 years later. We can’t just pick up where we left off. But in a way, that could be really good because the show can have a whole fresh bend to it.”

And when asked what Fran’s character would be up to?

“All kinds of things from environmental issues, to health, to civil liberties, that’s what I think Fran would be doing now — opening her big Queens mouth for the greater good,” she said.

Here’s hoping.
