CBS announced on January 24 that Murphy Brown, the sitcom that ran from 1988 to 1998, will return to the network with new episodes. Candice Bergen, who starred as television journalist Murphy Brown, will reprise her role to lead the revival. CBS has ordered 13 episodes of the series, set to debut in the 2018-2019 season. Original creator Diane English, who left the original show after season 4, will also return as writer/executive producer. Murphy Brown received 62 Emmy nominations and won 18 , five that went to Bergen for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy. In 1996, she withdrew from the Emmys race, declining further nominations for that role to make room for other actresses.
