Creator Linda Bloodworth-Thomason is shepherding a potential updated version of her hit 1990s CBS sitcom about four women (and one man) who work at an Atlanta design firm, which aired from 1986 to 1993, according to TVLine. She is developing the revival with Sony Pictures Television, which was recently revealed to be working on a potential reboot of The Facts of Life. The potential revival comes a month before Designing Women's CBS timeslot companion, Murphy Brown, is making a comeback with its own revival series. TVLine adds that the Designing Women reboot is expected to be "taken out to the marketplace soon," but it's unclear if any original cast members will be involved.
