Queen Latifah Reveals 'Living Single' Reunion Is in the Works

Remember when we requested to leave reboots in 2016? Well the trend isn't going to die anytime soon because Living Single is planning a series comeback. Queen Latifah revealed the revival news during her appearance on Bravo's Watch What Happens Live.

“Funny you should ask. We’re actually working on it,” she told host Andy Cohen. “It’s not there yet, but hopefully we can get it happening.” Latifah was one of the stars of the classic Fox sitcom that ran for five seasons from 1993-1998. Other castmates included Kim Coles, Erika Alexander, T.C. Carson, John Henton, Mel Jackson and Kim Fields.

Jason Sudekis, who was also a guest, exclaimed "I thought Friends was the reboot." The popular NBC series was actually based on Living Single, which followed six Black friends living in a Brooklyn brownstone. 

“It was one of those things where there was a guy called Warren Littlefield, who used to run NBC, and they asked him, ‘When all the new shows came out, if there was any show you could have, which one would it be?'" Latifah explained. "And he said Living Single...and then he created Friends. But Friends was so good, so it wasn't like we hated on it.”

There are no set plans for the Living Single revival, but the actress is thinking of putting it on Netflix. The news follows the reveal that The CW has a Charmed remake in the works. Below, watch this throwback Fuse interview where Queen Latifah talks singing at Super Bowl and her plans to party with Prince:
